Businesses along Broughton Street will also be participating in the decorating efforts. SERVE is the volunteer organization of the Savannah College of Art and Design.

The City will be working one block at a time.

When necessary, they will let out persons who are parked in the block. After the lights have been installed, the block will open for vehicular traffic.
IT IS REQUESTED THAT BUSINESSES AND RESIDENTS AVOID PARKING ON BROUGHTON STREET BETWEEN MONTGOMERY AND LINCOLN ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 19 FROM 4 A.M. TO 12 NOON.
