For Immediate Release


Confederate Memorial Task Force Reviewing 5,000 Responses


SAVANNAH, GA (December 15, 2017)— The City of Savannah’s Confederate Memorial Task Force is working to complete their recommendation to Mayor Eddie DeLoach, factoring in public feedback collected during the Confederate Memorial Survey.  The Confederate Memorial public comment period was open from October 30, 2017 at 5 p.m. through November 13, 2017 at 5 p.m.  The task force is scheduled to submit their recommendation in writing to the Mayor in early 2018.

Three portals were available and resulted in the following response:

Analysis Methodology:

  • As emails and mail were sorted and compiled, those from the same sender were counted as one response. For example, one respondent sent the same message as both an email and in hardcopy through the mail, while another respondent sent the same email message four times. Online responses were sorted by address. Those responses that came from the same respondent and were for the same vote were only counted as one response. If the respondent submitted multiple responses, but selected different answers for the multiple choice question, for example do not change in one but add interpretive signage in another, they were both counted; but if they submitted the response do not change four times, it was only counted as one response.
  • As a result, the chart attached reflects 4,901 responses after the duplicate responses were eliminated. At this time, no effort has been made to cross-reference duplicate responses between the online survey and the emails/mail received, though instances of that have been observed.
  • The online survey asked respondents whether they were Savannah residents or not. Those who commented via email or mail did not always provide that information, accounting for the unknown category in the charts.
