Historic Preservation

Leah G. Michalak, Director

The Historic Preservation Department protects and preserves the City of Savannah and Chatham County's historic resources through local zoning ordinances.

NOTICE: Per House Bill 493, detailed checklists of items are now required to be submitted with each development application. Additionally, there is now an affidavit at the end of the application and each checklist that must be signed, certifying that all required items are provided. This new process was adopted to help the review process for all types of development reviews in the state - for both the applicant and the reviewing body.
