    “Development in Savannah: Where Do We Go From Here?" 
    DATE: Thursday, April 13, 2017
    TIME: 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
    LOCATION: Massie Heritage Center
    COST: Free and open to the public

    Savannah is a well-recognized historic city, but the city does not live in the past, although some tourists think so. It is important to focus on what lies ahead and plan for these changes. The Friends of Massie, in partnership with the Downtown Neighborhood Association of Savannah, sponsor quarterly lectures about history and architecture, and they want to open this development discussion to the public.

    They have invited Kevin Klinkenberg, Executive Director, Savannah Development and Renewal Authority and Nick Palumbo, head of Smart Growth Savannah, to begin our conversation to take a hard look about future growth and planning.

    * Does this have to be the good, the bad, and the ugly?
    * How are our tourism industry and city planning interconnected?
    * How do we enact mindful growth in a city famous for its preservation movement?

    Mayor Eddie DeLoach

    City Manager Rob Hernandez

    Aldermen of the City of Savannah

    The Honorable Mayor DeLoach, City Manager Hernandez, and Aldermen:

    Re: Moratorium on Hotels in the Landmark District

    On behalf of the Board of Directors and Advisors of the Savannah Downtown Neighborhood Association,

    The Downtown Neighborhood Association supports a pause in large scale commercial development in the Landmark District.  The Historic Landmark District is the irreplaceable gem of Savannah and must be protected.  Thoughtful development in line with zoning and design protection will ensure the longevity of the district for generations to come.  We would encourage the development and implementation of incentives for residential build be a part of this pause process, as a greater number of residents will only benefit the local economy and area businesses.

    Thank you for your consideration,


    Melinda D. Allen

    President, Savannah Downtown Neighborhood Association
