SAVANNAH, MO. (2010-4-20) It looks like Savannah may opt out of the state's "Dream" program.
That's designed to help the city revitalize its downtown area, giving city officials access to consultants and other tools in exchange for paying about $14,000 per year for the program. But at last night's Savannah city council meeting, members expressed concern that was an investment out of city coffers that may or may not pay off and questioned if it would really bring more businesses and activities to the courthouse square area. In a vote, council members effectively decided not to continue participating in the dream initiative. Before landing the state program Savannah had already upgraded streets, lighting, and sidewalks in it's downtown district.
