City Hosting Second Archaeology Ordinance Meeting

SAVANNAH, GA. (Oct. 21, 2019) — The City of Savannah will be hosting a second meeting to discuss the formation of an archaeology ordinance on Thursday, Oct. 24, 6 p.m. at the Coastal Georgia Center.

During the meeting, the survey results will be shared as well as outlining a strategy for next steps as we move forward with the creation of an archaeology ordinance. The City developed and approved ordinances to protect the National Historic Landmark District, as well as other locally designated historic districts. However, one feature not included in any of these regulations is an archaeology ordinance.

Through the creation of such an ordinance, the community will be better able to recognize our archaeological resources as well as understand and celebrate our community’s unique and diverse history.

Parking is available in the Visitor Center Parking Lot accessible from Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard.

For more information, please contact Bridget Lidy at 912-525-3097 or planning@savannahga.gov.
