The Savannah Urbanism Series is held semi-annually and intended to educate and empower the greater Savannah Community on current issues in planning and development. This October, we are bringing leading professional and thinker Joe Riley; the former Mayor of Charleston, to facilitate an open dialogue on the difficulties of growth, change and development in urban places like Savannah. Vital discussions like these have the potential to challenge prevailing approaches to develop and foster informed and proactive policies for the future.
The second installment of the series is generously sponsored by Engels & Volkers, NAI Mopper-Benton, Brown Design Studio, SDRA, Downtown Neighborhood Association and many others.
About Joe Riley:
Joe Riley is the former mayor of Charleston, SC and over the span of four decades he had a profound impact on virtually every facet of life in the Holy City. Under his guidance and leadership, and in part due to his political acumen, Charleston has become a international tourism destination, a hub of culture and the arts, an economic powerhouse and a model for historic preservation and urban design.

August 10th 2016 at Top Deck Bar
Our first Congress for the New Urbanism meeting was held August 10th at the Top Deck rooftop bar in downtown Savannah. As CNU Savannah was recently founded this year, the importance of urbanism in Savannah was not only discussed, but we were also able to establish committee members and roles for the upcoming CNU 26 in 2018.
Being a meeting that had a variety of people, all with different jobs, we were able to find common ground with how we all find urbanism as a key element to a successfully sustained city.
