Flags at all city buildings will be lowered to half-staff on Friday in memory of astronaut Neil Armstrong.
Flags at state and federal facilities also will be lowered, and other government entities, citizens and businesses are encouraged to join the recognition.
"Many of us remember watching Neil Armstrong walk on the moon and were inspired by his example," Mayor Conrad Lee said. "He represents the spirit of America to go beyond limits. He'll be remembered as one of the great explorers of our time and a true American hero."
Armstrong's famous walk took place on July 20, 1969, as commander of the Apollo 11 mission. Armstrong died on Saturday in Ohio. He was 82.
