History Of Savannah Waterfront Association: Accomplishments: 1975 Formed non profit organization to represent the businesses of River Street. The SWA worked with the City as merchants representative for the construction of the new Waterfront Plaza. Began producing Festivals such as St. Patricks Day Celebration on the River, Oktoberfest, Seafood Festival and others which still continue being the primary marketing tool for River Street. 1992 Began soliciting corporate sponsors to fund festivals. 1995 The Savannah Waterfront Association developed a cooperative plan between the SWA and the City to build and install directional signs to be placed at the base of each ramp at River Street. Business names and directions were given. 1996 The Savannah Waterfront Association, again partnering with the City, developed a system of signs on Bay Street directing visitors to River Street. 1996 The Savannah Waterfront Association was a working partner in the River Walk Expansion project which tied the Plaza area up to the Marriott Hotel. 1996 The Savannah Waterfront Association acted as liaison between the merchants and the City as new approaches to trash control were explored and implemented. The result was dumpsters at the top of the ramps, enclosed in compatible enclosures. 1996 The Savannah Waterfront played host to the Olympic Yachting Events Venue as the Marriott Hotel was the Olympic Village and Morrell Park was the site for the Opening, Medal, and Closing Ceremonies. The Savannah Waterfront Association played a major role during the planning and implementation of the activities held on our venue. The SWA also furnished the huge fireworks finale for the Opening Ceremonies which included Walter Cronkite, Mark OConnor, our Governor, the King of Greece, among many other dignitaries. 1996-1997 The Savannah Waterfront Association initiated a project to design, build and install the very first Public Boat Docks on River Street. The SWA was a one-third partner with the City and County to bring this to reality. 1998 The Savannah Waterfront Association, in partnership with the CVB and the City, began planning for a combined visitors center/restroom complex on River Street. 1997-1998 The Savannah Waterfront Association, in partnership with the CVB, the City, County, and others, began planning for a Tall Ships Festival which was held in 1998. 2000 A Newsletter was produced and distributed to members and potential members, informing them of waterfront issues and activities. 2001 The Ga. Historical Society approved the SWAs request for a historical marker, outlining the history of the waterfront area. The dedication took place on February 12, 2001. 2001 The Savannah Waterfront Association, in partnership with the City and County, built 360 linear feet of new Public Floating Boat Dock to replace the smaller, original section that had been damaged. 2001 The Savannah Waterfront Association had an Economic Impact Study done regarding the St. Patricks Day Celebration on the River. It showed that, aside from the Parade, the River Street Celebration alone produces an annual economic impact of over $30 Million for the City of Savannah. 2002 The Savannah Waterfront Association hired a full time cleaning crew to clean the merchant side of River Street 7 days a week. 2002 Through the River Street Improvement Fund, an additional 25 trash cans and toppers were purchased for the Plaza area and Factors Walk. 2002 New Directional Signs were installed along the Waterfront to replace the older, worn signage. 2005 - Began a new tradtion with First Friday Fireworks on the River at 9:30 pm. This event is underwritten by Wet Willie's.
