100 Worst Properties
As part of the Blight to Bright campaign to improve and beautify Savannah, the City has compiled the 100 Worst Properties list. The list targets Savannah’s most neglected properties, selected from nominations made by the general public and locations identified by City staff.

Property Maintenance staff will be working their way through the list to bring each property into compliance, whether it’s an overgrown lot, a home with overdue maintenance issues, or a dilapidated structure in need of demolition.

Regular progress updates will be posted to this page. Use the interactive map below to view each properties location and the latest information about its progress. Clicking on each property will produce an informational pop-up; you can see a larger view of the property photo by clicking on it.


Residents can report blight by calling 311 or using the online 311 form.


The map was last updated July 2016.
