One of the key obstacles to improving the quality of communities in the Savannah region is the presence of codes that often make it illegal to build new urbanism. Collectively, zoning, building, subdivision, public works, fire, and similar codes shape our communities more than almost any other factor. Oftentimes, this occurs in a way that perpetuates conventional development patterns; is unresponsive to changing markets; and contrary to community desires.
CNU Savannah believes that the reform of the region’s local codes will play a central role in improving the quality of life in our region. Although other forms of local planning initiatives can remain influential for several years at a time, codes often remain in effect for decades. This allows them to fundamentally reshape the way communities develop or redevelop at little to no cost to public coffers.
