The Chatham County - Savannah Metropolitan Planning Commission (MPC) is happy to announce that the 2016 Comprehensive Plan has been adopted, following unanimous votes by the Savannah City Council and the Chatham County Commission.

Community input was used in preparing the Comprehensive Plan including information from the Chatham Community Blueprint.

The Comprehensive Plan covers a wide range of topics for the community including: Economic Development, Land Use, Transportation, Housing, Community Health, Education, Public Safety, Natural Resources and Historic & Cultural Resources. The Comprehensive Plan is available for review.


A series of community meetings will be held in May throughout Savannah's six aldermanic districts to gather public feedback.

For a full schedule of meetings, please visit www.savannahga.gov/savannahforward.
