- The historic houses and buildings of Ashland help make our City unique and provide links with aspirations and attainment of the City's pioneers and their descendants.
- These fine examples of 19th and early 20th century buildings contribute to an appreciation of our heritage.
- Preservation of these ties with our history helps avoid a sameness that in some communities makes for a feeling of rootlessness and lack of sense of place.
- National Historic Preservation Week provides an opportunity to recognize the value of Ashland's historic resources and encourages their preservation for future generations.
NOW, THEREFORE, the City Council and Mayor, on behalf of the citizens of Ashland, hereby proclaim the week of May 5 - 12, 2003 as
"NATIONAL HISTORIC PRESERVATION WEEK"
and call upon the people of Ashland to recognize and participate in this observance.
Dated this 6th day of May, 2003
Barbara Christensen, City Recorder
Alan DeBoer, Mayor
