August 31, 2017 City Council Regular Meeting
Motion to Amend Article H, Part 6, Section 6-1214, subsection (b), of the Code of Ordinance to Extend the Go-Cup Zone to Include the Savannah River Landing

On August 3, 2017, City Council approved a restated development agreement with developers of the Savannah River Landing, a 55-acre mixed-use development north of East President Street that is planned to have multifamily residential, hotels, office, single-family residential, and retail space. The development will contain public parks and squares that will be constructed for recreational and cultural uses. This property is the largest single tract of undeveloped land adjacent to the downtown area, and is an important component of the Tax Allocation District, established to fund certain public infrastructure projects.

The development is designed as an extension of the Historic District, with similar uses, public spaces and development patterns, and fronting a 2,100-foot extension of Savannah's world-famous riverwalk. The developers have petitioned the City to extend the City's Go-Cup Zone onto the Savannah River Landing property, to allow the outdoor consumption of alcohol on public spaces. The same rules and restrictions would apply.
