CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

The city of Savannah announced its plan to put a contract on the 67-acre land that most people know as the Coastal Empire Fairgrounds.

They are looking to purchase the property at $3 million, revitalize the area, and turn it into affordable housing, similar to Savannah Gardens.

The city plans on using the 550-unit Savannah Gardens on Pennsylvania Avenue as the model and develop the property into a mixed-use, mixed-income, environmentally sustainable community.
