Too late for the calendar: Town hall meeting tonight

A meeting at 7 p.m. tonight in the Savannah the Civic Center Ballroom will include discussion of historic preservation. The Historic Savannah Foundation is encouraging its members to “attend and advocate for our historic downtown and the outlying residential historic neighborhoods.”

In particular, the HSF is concerned about:

1. Incompatible large scale development in downtown Savannah
2. Better enforcement of historic board of review decisions
3. Converting East Broad and Price street to two-way streets (this would increase livability along Price and East Broad by slowing traffic and encouraging a more pedestrian friendly environment)

More information on the meeting can be found on the City of Savannah Web site. If you can’t make the meeting, you could try making your views known via the “Talk Back Savannah” feature.
