This is my last week as executive director of the MPC. Starting October 1, Melony West will be the interim executive director until the Planning Commission completes its search for a permanent one. Melony has 18 years with the MPC, and is well qualified to oversee it during this time.
I have greatly enjoyed serving the Planning Commission and the community over the last 12 plus years. I am looking forward to new experiences after my retirement.
My wife and I are staying in Savannah and I look forward to contributing to the community in different ways. Please continue to give your support to the MPC staff and the Planning Commission board members.
Please take a few minutes to look at our department pages to see some of the exciting projects that we have been/are working on to help improve our community. One project in particular, the Comprehensive Plan, encompasses all our departments and their multitude of projects and plans.
The Comprehensive Plan, also known as the Tricentennial Plan, was completed in 2006, with revisions made in 2009 and 2012. It is once again time to review and update our existing Plan. Now is the time to reflect on what has been completed, identify what still needs to be done, and determine if priorities have changed requiring any adjustments in the course we are headed. This document will help shape our community by identifying issues, opportunities, and priorities and allocating resources accordingly. Stay tuned for our public meeting dates on the draft plan.
