Welcome to the Chatham County-Savannah MPC’s new website.
We hope you will 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 that will be coming soon is the update to the Chatham County-Savannah Comprehensive Plan, also known as the Tricentennial Plan. The Tricentennial Plan was completed in 2006, with revisions made in 2009 and 2012, and it is once again time for a review and update of the existing plan.
This is a 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. Please check back for updates and opportunities to be involved in providing input for this important document that will help shape our community by identifying issues, opportunities, and priorities and allocating resources accordingly.


The Chatham County-Savannah Metropolitan Planning Commission (MPC) is currently accepting applications for the position of Development Services Planner.

The Savannah - Chatham Community Indicators Coalition is a source of reliable, current community health and population data available to our Chatham County Community.

The topic areas and associated data include:
  • Health
  • Economy
  • Education
  • Environment
  • Government and politics
