Be informed: Change is coming to Savannah.

The City of Savannah recently published a New Zoning Ordinance (NewZO) for public comment. Through the NewZO, we can help communities work together and be stronger by expanding opportunities to be healthy. Zoning should support key community goals like walkability, affordability, and neighborhood stability through incremental development.

The NewZO is an important opportunity. Our current Zoning Ordinance is outdated and inefficient. A broad community effort over the last ten years resulted in the New Zoning Ordinance (NewZO). This ordinance needs to be adopted to move the community forward. Click here to read a summary of Healthy Savannah’s recommendations for the NewZO. Learn more on the city’s website www.NewZO.org. And email policy@healthysavannah.org if you want to find out more.
