Saving Sandfly

Is your neighborhood growing? Is there a plan? Those are the big questions for a lot of places. And last night, folks who live in Sandfly in southeastern Chatham County started getting answers.

The Georgia Conservancy's Blueprints for Successful Community hosted a workshop for Sandfly residents. Together they're trying to get the Sandfly community to work toward responsible growth, while protecting their heritage and their future. The first step, figuring how to grow and what to preserve.

"There is a lot of growth growing in all communities. But, in Savannah it's growing pretty fast and this in itself will be a step in planning for individual communities," said James Miller of the Save Our Sandfly organization.

About 100 people turned out; we'll keep you posted on the plans.
