    Ordinance re: Quadricycles in Downtown

    On Thursday, October 10, the Savannah City Council will be considering legislation to modify the operating areas and activities of the quadricycle slow rides.  This legislation will limit their areas of operation to North of Charlton and West of Abercorn St.  Additionally, a separate piece of alcohol ordinance legislation will PROHIBIT the operation of the slow rides with any OPEN CONTAINERS of alcohol.  It is important that members of the downtown community show their support for this legislation by contacting the alderman as well as attending the Council Hearing on the 10th of October. 

    Please reach out to the Mayor and City Council members encouraging them to support this legislation.  If you are able to attend the Council Hearing on the 10th please do, so we can show our support by having a large turnout.

    Each year, the DNA bestows 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 before the DNA Board of Directors for selection.

    The funds for the grants are raised each year through the DNA’s Savannah Holiday Tour of Homes. Members and supporters of the DNA open their homes and inns for visitors to tour and learn about architecture, home décor, and the history and culture of the South. Close to a hundred volunteers supported the day-long event held last December. The DNA sold more than 800 tickets and raised $45,000 from the event. With two-thirds going to grants, the additional $10,000 will support community initiatives that address livability issues for downtown residents.
