    It was brought to DNA's attention this week that the new buses SCAD is using for transportation may be affecting the quality of life in some residential areas of downtown. DNA leadership has compiled a list of concerns from residents and will be meeting with City of Savannah officials and with SCAD to learn more about the situation and share residents' concerns.

    Here's a sample of the information the City is hoping to get your feedback on:
    What do you think of the Broughton St. Lights?
    Should the Broughton St. lights remain up all year?
    Is the closing of Broughton St. a good idea?
    If so, where should it occur, what should be the frequency and when is a good time? What would the closed area be used for?
    What type of seating would you like to see along Broughton St.?
