  1. Develop walking tours, maps, signage, and other tools to identify historic places in the community, raise awareness of the neighborhoods’ histories among residents and visitors, attract visitors to the area, and connect cultural resources
  2. Identify historic buildings in the Southwest Partnership area, make recommendations about what needs to be done to preserve them, and seek out resources for preservation and development where needed. The Committee is currently focusing on the preservation of the Malachi Mills House (1504 W Baltimore St)
