SUMMARY:

Consideration of an ordinance approving a Professional Services Agreement in an amount not to exceed $313,200.00 with Neighborhood Housing Services of San Antonio for the Shotgun House Pilot Program.


BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

Council District 5 requested funding in the FY2021 Budget for a Shotgun House Rehabilitation Pilot Program to rehab three shotgun houses. The program was launched in January 2021. Through the program, the Office of Historic Preservation (OHP) and the Neighborhood & Housing Services Department (NHSD) collaborated with UTSA, MicroSA, and Neighborhood Housing Services of San Antonio (NHSSA) to develop a strategy for preserving this type of housing stock.

The partners collaborated to establish workforce trainings framed within best practices under the Secretary of Interior Standards as well as sustainable and green building practices. The outcomes of the pilot project will help to define the infrastructure and financial framework needed for a system that can be replicated citywide.

To date, two shotgun-style houses in Council District 5 have been rehabilitated through the pilot. Funding for the Professional Services Agreement with Neighborhood Housing Services of San Antonio would support the preservation of the third house and potentially three more houses. All houses done through the District 5 Shotgun House Rehabilitation Pilot will be occupied or leased to individuals or families earning up to 80% AMI and would be required to be affordable for a period of 15 years.
