Savannah Surplus Property Preference Survey

The MPC is producing a Community-Focused Land Use Options and Evaluation Report for three properties in the west Savannah area. We need your input and comments on the proposed land use scenarios and design options. The MPC’s strategy includes a preference survey to allow the public to provide opinions for uses and designs on options. The MPC will then design 2-3 land use options for each parcel and will present this information to the community for feedback. Once the comment period has ended a final report with findings and recommendations for land use will be delivered to the City.

The SURVEY takes less than five minutes to complete and will be open through August 31, 2020.

Additional methods for feedback include:
  • Email your comments to the MPC Staff
  • “Virtual” forums: Tuesday, August 4th and Monday, August 31st at 11:00 AM and 5:30 PM.
  • Call 912-651-1480 to leave comments.
  • A hard copy of the survey can be requested by calling 912-651-1480 and leaving an address for mailing.
  • Mail comments to: Metropolitan Planning Commission (MPC), Attn: Surplus Property Use Comments, 110 East State Street, Savannah, GA 31401
