Unified Zoning Ordinance
Welcome to the Unified Zoning Ordinance web page. This page is intended to keep you up-to-date on the progress of the proposed Unified Zoning Ordinance (UZO). The UZO is an update of the existing zoning ordinances and zoning maps for the City of Savannah and unincorporated Chatham County, which were adopted in the early 1960s.
The Planning Commission is reviewing Draft 2 at monthly meetings which can be found on the Schedule of Meetings page. The public is invited to attend and to comment at each of these meetings.
You may also view the Draft 2 Questions & Answers Matrix to see the Planning Commission's comments/questions on Draft 2 and staff's response to each.
To view the draft, please click here or on the “project documents” tab on the menu to the left. The UZOOM tool will help you locate the existing and proposed zoning district for any property within Savannah and the unincorporated county, including a comparison of existing land uses and district development standards.
If you have questions or comments, you can share them with us by any of the following:
Visit: Talk to an MPC planner at 110 E State St, Mon-Fri from 8:30am-5:00pm
