Tourism panel presents plan to city leaders

Posted: Updated:

The Tourism Advisory Committee of Savannah on Thursday highlighted some good news from 2012 and changes they'd like to see in 2013. 

They spotlighted the removal and relocation of horse carriage companies as one success in 2012, but they have plans for changes this year.

Other plans include enhancing tour services and capping the number and kinds of tours available in Savannah to make residents happy and keep business viable.

Some Savannah city leaders know where they want the proposed arena to go, but a study may disagree.

The former Chatham Steel site in west Savannah is one of four sites about to be looked at along with the current Savannah Civic Center, the Savannah River Landings and a parcel of land off Fahm Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.

Mayor Edna Jackson said a promise was made to Carver Heights residents about developing that area and putting the arena there.

She wants to keep the promise, but the study is about to begin in March. She said may show some issues with that location.
