S.T.A.R. (Students Together Achieving Revitalization) is a partnership between the Office of Historic Preservation, the UTSA College of Architecture, San Antonio College, the Historic Preservation Association (HPA), and local contractors to provide minor exterior home repairs and maintenance to homeowners within local historic districts. Graduate and undergraduate architecture students assist property owners with repairs to windows and screens, siding, and porches, as well as provide general yard maintenance and exterior painting. Several contractors have generously volunteered their time to work with students, and other sponsors have donated food, supplies, and funding.
The latest S.T.A.R. project took place in the Knob Hill Historic District on April 6-7 and 13-14, 2013. Check out more information and photos of all of the houses that participated in the S.T.A.R. project in Knob Hill at the links below.
Past S.T.A.R. projects have assisted numerous homeowners in the Dignowity Hill, Tobin Hill, and Government Hill Historic Districts and the Five Points neighborhood. Check out our Past Events page for more information and photos of past S.T.A.R. projects.
