Meeting to Plan Hispanic Survey Event

Historic Preservation (HP) Office staff met with representatives from Wells Fargo, LULAC, and Chicano Por La Causa to discuss planning an event or series of events celebrating the completion of the City’s Hispanic Heritage Study in late 2006. The group recommended a kick-off event during Hispanic Heritage Month in mid-late September 2007 which may include a celebration in the lobby of City Hall, followed by a possible unveiling of an exhibit at Wells Fargo Bank. The exhibit may then travel to several elementary schools over the following year. Subsequent planning meetings for the event(s) are scheduled bi-weekly for the next few months.
