This district was established in 1981 and consists of 45 city blocks developed from the 1860s to the 1920s. Recognized as Savannah's
first Streetcar Suburb, the district's zoning overlay ordinance was developed to promote the general welfare of the city through
rehabilitation, conservation, revitalization, and redevelopment of the area. The Planning Commission reviews all new construction, demolition,
and relocation within this district; all other exterior changes are reviewed by Preservation staff.
