On July 25, 2023, the Victorian, Thomas Square, and Cuyler Brownville neighborhoods submitted zoning petitions to the City of Savannah to expand the Hotel Development Overlay District to include these areas. When the petitions were presented to the Planning Commission, they were continued to allow for additional stakeholder input.
