Blight to Bright
100 worst

Blight is everyone’s business. When your home is in disrepair, or your yard is wildly overgrown, it reflects poorly on your entire neighborhood. It tells your neighbors you’re not invested, and it signals to criminals that this is a place where unlawful behavior is tolerated. Blight simply has no place in the most beautiful city in America.

As part of our ongoing effort to eradicate blight in Savannah, the City has launched a new campaign called Blight to Bright. Blight to Bright will include a variety of initiatives aimed at improving our enforcement efforts and empowering our residents to join us in this effort. Some of this campaign will involve rolling out new laws and new tactics. Some will simply involve providing better information like this website, to you, our residents.

We’re going to give you real data on all of our enforcement efforts, allowing you to see whether the City has made a case on that dilapidated home down the street, and where we are in the enforcement process. And we’re going to ask you to let us know when you see blight in your neighborhood by calling 311 or filling out a work order request online.

We’re not saying this is going to be easy – last year Property Maintenance inspectors opened more than 13,000 cases. But by working together, we can make real progress in moving all of Savannah from Blight to Bright.
