Open House: World Heritage Work Plan Updates Coming Soon

After gathering community feedback regarding the future plans for city's newly-designated World Heritage sites – the city's five Spanish missions – the City of San Antonio and its partners will provide an update on the World Heritage Work Plan during an open house on Tuesday, April 5 from 6-8 p.m.

The open house will be held at the National Park Service Visitor Center, adjacent to Mission San José, at 6701 San José Drive.
