City to host meeting to discuss potential archaeology ordinance

Posted By on Thu, Sep 19, 2019 at 4:07 PM

The City of Savannah will be hosting a meeting to discuss the formation of an archaeology ordinance on Thursday, Sept. 26, 6 p.m. at the Coastal Georgia Center.

Contrary to popular opinion, Savannah currently has no ordinance specifically protecting archaeological assets.

"Since the early 1970s, the City has developed and approved ordinances to protect the National Historic Landmark District, as well as other locally designated historic districts, during development. Yet, one feature not included in any of these regulations is an archaeology ordinance," a City spokesperson says.


"Through the creation of such an ordinance, the community will be better able to recognize our archaeological resources as well as understand and celebrate our community’s unique and diverse history," the City says.

Parking is available in the Visitor Center Parking Lot accessible from Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard.
