6. A Proclamation Declaring the Month of May as National Historic Preservation Month.
Historic preservation is an effective tool for communities across the nation, for managing growth and sustainable development, revitalizing neighborhoods, fostering local pride, promoting affordable housing and maintaining community character while enhancing livability. It is important to celebrate the role of historic preservation in our lives and the contributions made by dedicated individuals in helping to safeguard the tangible aspects of the heritage that has shaped us as a people. The Historic Savannah Foundation partners with the City of Savannah to maintain its ongoing and longstanding preservation efforts, the nationally recognized Revolving Fund program, as well as educational classes and opportunities, networking and community service events, awareness-raising functions and more.
