West Bay Streetscape Improvement Initiative – Meeting 3:  Final Presentation
Tuesday, Dec. 19, 2017
6 p.m. – 8 p.m. 
Coastal Georgia Center, 305 Fahm Street, Savannah 

The initial Downtown Streetscape Improvement Project area addressed Bay Street from East Broad to MLK.  In recognition of West Bay Street as a major gateway into downtown Savannah, the City of Savannah recently added West Bay Street from MLK to Warner Street (base of the viaduct bridge) to the study area. 

This phase of the Streetscape Initiative began in June 2017.  The community has been actively engaged in the process through two community meetings plus an online survey.  “We have had great public input throughout this process,” says Bridget Lidy, Director, Tourism Management & Ambassadorship Department for the City of Savannah.  “The community continues to be actively engaged and we appreciate the input from all who have participated.”  This last meeting for the West Bay Streetscape Improvement Initiative will unveil the final conceptual design. 

Building from the earlier work of the Downtown Streetscape Improvement Project, the consultant team, led by EDSA, is utilizing a similar process in working actively with the community throughout the conceptual design process.  The City’s website,, includes more information about the process to date, including presentations from previous meetings.
