The Chatham County – Savannah Comprehensive Plan

Plan 2040 Has Been Adopted!

Plan 2040, our Comprehensive Plan, is a shared vision for the future of our community. The Comprehensive Plan is a guide for the short- and long-term growth, redevelopment, and preservation of Chatham County, Garden City, Pooler and Savannah. It reflects the community's values and goals, and lays out strategies to achieve them. Continued progress of our community must follow a strategic approach that balances a desirable built environment, economic development, natural resources, transportation options, and a high quality of life for all of our residents. Plan 2040 is a five-year update of Chatham County and the City of Savannah’s existing Comprehensive Plan that will be used by local officials as a guide to help make policy decisions regarding the community's growth and development for the next twenty years.

Thank you for everything you have contributed to this plan which will guide our communities’ decisions over the next 20 years and shape our communities for generations to come. We could not have done this without you. You can view each of the full Comprehensive Plans for Garden City, Pooler, Savannah, and unincorporated Chatham County on the Plan 2040 website.

Chatham County and the City of Savannah's Plan 2040 provides the broad vision for the community, future land use map, detailed goals, and a short term work program. Plan 2040 was created in coordination with the Chatham Community Blueprint, a strategic plan for Savannah and Chatham County. Plan 2040 can be downloaded in PDF format using the links below.
