The Initiative to Protect Jekyll Island has been honored with three prestigious awards for its promotion of responsible redevelopment of Jekyll Island State Park and work to keep the park accessible and affordable for the people of Georgia and the many visitors from around the country who call Jekyll their favorite vacation destination.
These awards belong to the thousands of people who love Jekyll and who have provided important public input, kept abreast of Jekyll redevelopment issues, and have continued to do all they can to ensure that Jekyll Island State Park's natural assets are protected and traditional character maintained.
For the love of Jekyll, let us celebrate and review the successes we have worked so hard to obtain:
The south end of Jekyll Island State Park has been protected from development, thanks to House Bill 214.
The Linger Longer/JIA town center plan has been significantly scaled back, allowing Jekyll's open beach front and public access points to be preserved.
The maritime forest between the convention center and Blackbeard's Restaurant has been spared from development.
The following awards are icing on the cake!
