Good Government

This resolution supports implementation of the City of Savannah's new Zoning Ordinance and Zoning Map (NewZO) approved on July 18, 2019.  Specifically, the required creation of a new review body; referred to as the Historic Preservation Commission (HPC). The HPC's review authority will include all local historic districts and conservation districts with the exception of the Savannah Downtown Historic Overlay District. HPC powers and duties are provided in Section 2.5 of the Zoning Ordinance. The bylaws presented as part of this Resolution may be amended in the future by the review body. Following adoption, the Mayor and Aldermen will advertise and select nine members to serve on the newly established HPC by January 1, 2019.
