Naperville Historic Preservation Month

WHEREAS, historic preservation is an effective tool for managing growth, revitalizing neighborhoods, fostering local pride and maintaining community character while enhancing livability; and

WHEREAS, in 1986, the Naperville, Illinois City Council designated a specific neighborhood to be its Historic District as special and unique;  to be set apart from every other; to attract tourists, contribute to the area’s stability and livability, and give residents a sense of connection with their shared heritage; and

WHEREAS, it is important to celebrate the role of history in our lives and the contributions made by dedicated individuals such as those here today in helping to preserve the tangible aspects of the heritage that has shaped us as a community; and

WHEREAS, “Sustain America–Vision, Economics and Preservation” is the theme for National Preservation Month 2006, co-sponsored by the Naperville Historic District, a neighborhood of the East Central Homeowners Organization, known as ECHO; North Central College and the National Trust for Historic Preservation; and

WHEREAS, Historic Preservation Month 2006 is an occasion for celebrating the historic resources within the community and increasing public awareness of the importance of historic preservation so that special resources can be preserved to pass onto future generations;

NOW, Therefore, the National Trust for Historic Preservation does honor the City of Naperville for designating a specific portion of its community as an Historic District, and thanks the people of Naperville for joining their fellow citizens across the United States in recognizing and participating in Preservation Month.

Signed, sealed and delivered on May 13th, 2006, to the Mayor of Naperville, George Pradel.
