Brownfield Program

Brownfield: a vacant site which may be contaminated from former use as an industrial site, factory, gas station, dry cleaner, mechanic, etc.

The City of Savannah Brownfield Program is funded by the EPA to assess and plan for the clean-up and reuse of Brownfields. The goals of the program are to (1) reduce harmful environmental hazards and (2) redevelop vacant sites into community assets.

The focus areas of the FY22 Assessment grant include Hudson Hill, West Savannah, Woodville, between 37th St and Victory Dr., and between Habersham St. and Pennsylvanian Ave. See Focus Area Map below.
