City hosting meeting to discuss potential archaeology ordinance

SAVANNAH, GA (Sept. 19, 2019) — The City of Savannah will be hosting a meeting to discuss the formation of an archaeology ordinance on Thursday, Sept. 26, 6 p.m. at the Coastal Georgia Center.

Since the early 1970s, the City has developed and approved ordinances to protect the National Historic Landmark District, as well as other locally designated historic districts, during development. Yet, 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.

Please join us on Sept. 26 to discuss the City’s effort crafting an archaeology ordinance.

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.
