The City recently undertook the creation of a strategic plan for the future, to help make Savannah the best mid-sized city in America. We’re calling it Savannah Forward.

In May of 2017, we held community meetings throughout Savannah and launched an online survey to ask you, our citizens, what matters most to you. We’d like to thank everyone who took the time to attend a meeting or complete our survey.

The input we received from our community provided valuable direction to the Mayor and City Council as they determined the City’s areas of focus or strategic priorities as well as measurable strategic results that must be accomplished in order to realize each priority. Once the strategic priorities and strategic results were set by the Mayor and City Council, City staff worked together to create an implementation plan for each strategic result to ensure that a roadmap exists to achieve what is most important for our City.

Below is a summary of the feedback received at the Community Outreach meetings:
