Overhaul of City Zoning Published for Public Feedback
SAVANNAH, GA (May 7, 2018) — A draft of the New Zoning Ordinance (NewZO) has been jointly published by the City of Savannah and the Metropolitan Planning Commission. The proposal seeks to update the City’s zoning ordinance which was adopted in 1960.
“Our zoning ordinance has never been overhauled to reflect the numerous changes that have occurred in the last 50 years,” said Planning and Urban Design Director Bridget Lidy. “This proposal will simplify our zoning code and provide much needed updates to parcels of land that have seen their use change as Savannah has grown.”
Over the next few weeks the public will have several opportunities to learn more about the project and provide feedback. The Metropolitan Planning Commission (MPC) will hold meetings at the Arthur Mendonsa Conference Room located at 110 E. State St.
Hard copies for the public to review will be available at the following locations by the end of this week:
