DNA responds to question: "who speaks for the Historic District"
The Downtown Neighborhood Association, a 501(c)(3) organization, was established in 1974 by downtown residents in an effort to protect the National Historic Landmark District’s architectural heritage, encourage restoration and beautification, safeguard Savannah’s unique downtown environment, and advocate public policies related to these goals. The DNA provides grants to support local organizations that enhance the downtown community and its way of life through education, safety, music and children’s activities.
The DNA was established because residents saw the need to unite and protect the Landmark District. They met those needs and their vision has been sustained for over four decades. Efforts to protect the District’s architectural heritage, encourage restoration and beautification, and support local organizations that enhance our downtown community and way of life continue to be seen.
Approximately 500 members are dedicated to making downtown a thriving neighborhood of families, individuals, students, and businesses.
