SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – The City of Savannah is inviting the public to learn about the Canal District Master Plan by participating in a virtual meeting Thursday.

The Zoom meeting, which is the last of three, is set for Thursday, July 16, at 10 a.m.

The Canal District is the City’s “premier planning and development initiative.” Anchored by the new SPLOST-funded arena, the Canal District is located on the west side of Savannah near the intersection of Gwinnet Street and Stiles Avenue.

The arena and surrounding district will be one of the largest projects the City has ever undertaken, the City says.

The upcoming virtual workshop is in place to prepare for the area’s future growth and development. The Master Plan and accompanying Action Playbook will be presented to the City Council on July 23.

Last month, the Metropolitan Planning Commission (MPC) asked the public for feedback through an online public survey and virtual meetings. If you would still like to give feedback, visit thempc.org and select the “Input on Savannah’s New Arena and Canal District Master Plan” link on the homepage. The survey takes less than five minutes to complete.
