Development on Hutchinson Island Planned

Development on Hutchinson Island was the topic at today's Downtown Rotary Club meeting. John McLesky of the Savannah Harbor was the keynote speaker. He discussed the important relationship between the Savannah Harbor, downtown Savannah and the historic district.

McLesky also talked about developing both sides of the river by building a large boat marina and even a residential subdivision. "We've never had any residential development on Hutchinson Island," he said. "In fact, I don't know if there's ever been any residential development on Hutchinson Island, but we're about to start some, so let's see how it goes."

McLesky says construction on the marina will start later this year.
