Garden District Association Membership Reminder

If you have not already done so this, year we hope you will join in our efforts to protect and preserve the neighborhood by becoming a member of the Association.  Since 1939, the Association has been very successful in keeping this residential area in tact as a living thriving neighborhood with deep roots in the city’s history and boasting some of the best architecture in the nation. We have fought hard to maintain the balance between a thriving Magazine corridor, the tourism industry and the residential character of the area. We hope you will help us to continue in these efforts through your membership dues and by participating in the several events that we host each year.

Our Annual Membership Meeting will be held in May at one of the beautiful homes in the neighborhood. All current members will be invited. More information will be sent in the coming weeks.

At the Annual meeting, Board members* will be elected, Renovators’Awards** and the Terry-Parkerson Award** will be presented. Members may send nominations to for all of the above as well as suggestions for the Garden District Security Distirct Board of Commissioners which will take place in July. Self-nominations will not be accepted in any categories.

*Nominations for Board members should include reasons for nomination and complete contact information for the nominee.
**Renovators’ Awards are presented to the owners of properties renovated within the last year.  These properties have either been truly preserved or renovated in such a way to enhance the surrounding neighborhood. All contact information and an exterior photo should be included in the nomination.
***The Terry-Parkerson Award is given periodically to a member of the Association who has not only helped the GDA in its mission, but has gone well beyond the boundaries of the Garden District through their activism and volunteerism to benefit the city.
