SAVANNAH, GA (February 7, 2018)— City of Savannah District 5 Alderwoman Dr. Estella Shabazz encourages residents and businesses to attend and participate in an important drop-in meeting regarding Project DeRenne. The meeting is being held by the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT).

This meeting is the next milestone activity in the environmental process for the project. GDOT, federal environmental professionals and members of the Project DeRenne design team will inform the public on the current status, answer questions and seek feedback on various aspects of the project.

Stations will be set up around the meeting room and cover topics such as:

In 2008, City of Savannah initiated a project known as Project DeRenne to determine the future of the DeRenne Ave. corridor while seeking to balance the often competing objectives of transportation and neighborhood connectivity. Project DeRenne is currently in Phase 3 of a five-phase process for developing long term solutions for the revitalization of the corridor.
