    From the President:

    I'd like to thank each of you who attended the monthly meeting last week which focused on quality-of-life issues downtown, primarily the huge increase in tours.  The research conducted by the residents of Washington and Warren Squares was amazing and gave us a launch pad for future action. For those of you who were unable to attend the meeting, you can view the presentation and video on the DNA Facebook page as well as on our website

    As a follow-up to this meeting, the Board is scheduling a meeting with the City Manager to discuss ways to mitigate the problems identified in the presentation and other quality of life topics discussed at the meeting. We will continue to provide updates to you as we work the issues with the city. 
    Recently, the Board decided to "Adopt a Street" as part of the Keep Savannah Beautiful initiative. The area we adopted is E. Broad St from Bay to Gwinnett St. On Sunday, March 26, members of the Board, (Paul Cobet, Denise Flojo and myself) conducted the first trash pick-up as part of this quarterly program. In the near future, a sign will be installed identifying the DNA as the cleanup sponsor.  If you'd like to help, we'll keep you posted on the dates.  See photos below. 
    Additionally, as part of the Keep Savannah Beautiful initiative, the semiannual cleanup day is scheduled for Saturday, April 15.  Ward Captains will be reaching out before then to solicit volunteers in their respective areas. 
    One final important reminder, this Thursday, March 30, is the official start of the 2023 baseball season.  What a glorious day.

    Group to fund neighborhood improvement projects

    Our community is generous, stands ready to help, and responds when called to action.

    The epitome of these attributes is the support given by members and supporters of the Downtown Neighborhood Association (DNA) who serve as part of the Holiday Tour of Homes and Inns held each December. More than $50,000 was raised from this year’s event, and now it is time to put those funds to work.

    The DNA is now accepting proposals for its 2023 Community Grants Program. Using the funds raised by the tour, the DNA will bestow grants to community organizations that have an impact on the greater downtown area, particularly those that help or enrich the residential quality of life.

    Each recipient goes through an application process and review by the DNA board of directors for selection.

    Past grants have provided food and services for the needy, sponsored educational and athletic activities for children, addressed domestic violence issues, and supported the history and culture of Savannah, just to name a few examples.

    Additional information and applications can be accessed from the DNA’s website: The deadline for submission is midnight on March 20.

    As always, our thanks to those who help us carry out the DNA mission to protect the National Historic Landmark District’s architectural heritage, encourage restoration and beautification, safeguard Savannah’s unique downtown environment, and advocate public policies related to these goals.

    David McDonald, president

    You may recall during the beginning of COVID in 2020, the City worked with restaurants to provide outdoor dining opportunities.  This was a way to help restaurants through the pandemic and provide customers an opportunity to get out of the house and enjoy Savannah’s many great restaurants.

    The expanded outdoor dining took place in on-street parking spots and is commonly known around the world as a Parklet.  Attached to this email is a presentation that was given to the Mayor and Aldermen during a workshop in December 2022.  The presentation describes what parklets are, where they can be placed, and what they should look like.  The presentation does not include proposed fees as City staff is still researching other communities and how they charge for this use. 

    The City is considering bringing the Parklet program back and allowing restaurants to establish Parklets permanently, or as long as the restaurant is in business.  We would like to hear what your thoughts are about this proposed program.

    This is a link to a short, 8-question survey, that will help us understand what you think about this proposal.  We hope that you will share this email and survey to anyone you think might be interested in providing feedback about Parklets.

    We will also be hosting a Public Meeting to discuss the Parklet proposal and hope you will be able to join us:

    What:                Parklet Public Meeting

    Where:              Coastal Georgia Center Auditorium

    When:                Wednesday, January 18th, 5:30PM 

    If you would like to discuss Parklets further or if you have any questions, please contact Tourism Coordinator, Rachel Buck, at
