January 12, 2023 City Council Regular Meeting
31. Resolution to Transfer a Vacant Lot Known as 214 Cumming Street to the Chatham County/City of Savannah Land Bank Authority (LBA) to the Owner-occupied House at 216 Cumming Street to Facilitate the Development of a Room Addition and Driveway.
Strategic Priority
Neighborhood Revitalization

The Mayor and Aldermen have undertaken an initiative to bring about the development of blighted, abandoned properties as quality affordable housing for low- and modest-income persons. The Chatham County/City of Savannah Land Bank Authority (LBA) requests that the City of Savannah transfer the title to the vacant lot located at 214 Cumming Street to the LBA. The LBA will make the property available to the owner-occupant of 216 Cumming Street, Mr. Rudolph Moore, so he can construct a room addition at his narrow home and a driveway. Mr. Moore has cared for the lot at 214 Cumming Street for years with the hope that he could purchase it for the above described purposes once he finished purchasing his house at 216 Cumming Street. The LBA will return no less than 90% of the net sale proceeds to the City of Savannah.
