Reminder: City hosting master plan workshop for Canal District

SAVANNAH, GA (Aug. 20, 2019) — The City of Savannah will host a community workshop for the development of a detailed master plan for the Canal District on Thursday, Aug. 22, at 6 p.m. at the Coastal Georgia Center, 305 Fahm Street. All members of the community are invited and encouraged to attend.

The City is collaborating with the Perkins + Will team in crafting a master plan that builds upon many years of discussion and previous work accomplished by the Arena committee and subcommittees, as well as various studies. This initiative will build upon the 2016 Canal District Master Plan—a high-level conceptual plan—to one that will provide a more detailed framework for future development. The process will also focus on preserving existing neighborhoods in the area based on feedback from the community.

For more information, please contact Bridget Lidy, Director of Planning and Urban Design, at 912-525-3097 or
