Jekyll Island has always been a great place to go to relax and get away from the fast paced city life. But that seems to be ending. Why is it that no can build a new house on Jekyll Island unless they tear down an old house? There no new development does not include big developers? Tear down an old hotel and build a new one but they should say with their no new development. There is a lot of wild life on the island and people love to see that. But if you completly build up the island, then the enjoyment of the place is gone.

The proposed plan is terrible. The procurement of the plan was terrible and the whole thing wreaks of kickbacks and bargain priced oceanfront condos
for some members of the Jekyll Island Authority.
We (the locals here) are not aginst refurbishing or rebuilding and improving existing structures. What alot of us do have a problem with is the JIA giving away 65 acres of prime oceanfront property to a private developer who intends to replace our oceanfront public parking lots with private condos & cottages, destroying one of the few places left on the east coast where Sea Turtles
can nest and the JIA's blatent lack of concern for what The People of Georgia want on their PUBLIC STATE PARK ISLAND.
