ENSURE THAT SANTA MONICA’S PAST HAS A FUTURE

Join or renew your membership. Residents’ donations helped us make great progress for preservation in 2014:

*
Our advocacy helped to preserve the 5th Street Post Office building, strengthen the Mills Act tax abatements for owners of historic properties, and make historic districts easier to form,
while the new Zoning Ordinance redline contains many changes
we requested to support the preservation of historic properties throughout the City,
*
We moved the Shotgun House to its permanent site next to the Ocean Park Library and, as its rehabilitation progresses, our long-held dream of establishing a Preservation Resource Center is nearing reality.

With your support, we can accomplish even more in 2015:

*
We will open the Preservation Resource Center in the Spring and will provide practical, user-friendly information about the methods and benefits of preserving older buildings;

*
We will complete development of our innovative “Building a Neighborhood” curriculum, which will teach elementary school students about community development, architecture and using the Third Street Historic District as a learning laboratory, and

*
We will hire our first executive director to lead us into a new era of growth and effectiveness.

Your generous donation can make these things possible, and more!
