April 25, 2019 City Council Regular Meeting
16. Motion to Approve the Naming of an Unnamed Park Located at the Coffee Bluff Marina to "Rosedew Park" (Petitioner: Alderman Tony Thomas)
Strategic Priority
Good Government

The petitioner is requesting to name the unnamed park located at Coffee Bluff Marina to "Rosedew Park.

The area now known as the Coffee Bluff Marina was originally part of Dr. L.A. Fallignat's subdivision known as the Town of Rosedew (also known as Rose Dhu).  An 1887 map shows "Rosedew Park" in the location of what is now Coffee Bluff Road (originally named Rosedew Avenue).  The property was acquired by the City of Savannah in 2008.  Within the marina property, there exists the Herbert R. "Herbie" Battise Fishing Pier, a pavilion and a playground.

The requirements in Article E. Section 4:1100-1108 have been met.
