[ARCHIVED] Public invited to final Downtown Streetscapes Meeting

For Immediate Release
Date: March 21, 2017

Members of the public have one more opportunity to review and weigh in on proposed changes to downtown streetscapes during a community meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday, March 23, at the Coastal Georgia Center, 305 Fahm Street.
The City of Savannah launched the first phase of the Downtown Streetscape Improvement Initiative in December 2016, which includes improvements for Broughton Street, Bay Street, and River Street. All members of the community are invited and encouraged to attend the final community meeting.
“The community has been highly engaged and we appreciate the tremendous feedback we have received over the past several months,” said Bridget Lidy, Director of the City’s Tourism Management and Ambassadorship Department. “This meeting will be the culmination of all the input received to present the final conceptual designs for Broughton, Bay, and River Streets.”
This public meeting will be the final in a series of six meetings to develop the conceptual designs for Broughton, Bay, and River streets. The first two meetings addressed the streets collectively, while meetings three, four and five were held to each focus on one street. This final meeting will present the final conceptual designs for each street to the community. Go to www.savannahga.gov/streetscape for more information and a link to sign up for email updates.
About The Savannah Downtown Streetscape Improvement Project
In August 2016, City Council approved a design services contract with diverse team led by EDSA for Phase One of the Downtown Streetscape Improvement Initiative. The services include comprehensive planning, design, pre-construction, construction administration, and closeout services. Improvements for Broughton Street, Bay Street and River Street will be designed and constructed during this project. Future phases will enhance the public realm for corridors in the area from Liberty Street to the Savannah River and from Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to E. Broad Street.
