Public Input Sessions

The Jekyll Island Authority engages in several public input sessions throughout the year to gain citizen involvement on new and on-going projects. Sessions include periodic town hall meetings and “coffee and conversations” with key staff. The JIA Executive Director has an open door policy for issues between sessions. Additionally, all Jekyll Island Board of Directors meetings and committee meetings are open to the public. View the meeting schedule »

Comprehensive Disability Accessibility Assessment & Improvement Plan

The Jekyll Island Authority (JIA) and the Georgia State ADA Coordinator’s Office are engaged in the development of a Comprehensive Disability Accessibility Assessment and Improvement Plan to enhance access and inclusion for people with disabilities in recreation and leisure activities offered by the JIA.

Golf Master Plan Survey

The National Golf Foundation (NGF) has been contracted to develop a Master Plan for the Jekyll Island Golf Club. Public input is vital to the plan development, and as such, NGF is conducting an online survey to gauge golfers’ opinions regarding the Golf Club. NGF plans to incorporate this feedback, along with additional stakeholder feedback, into the development of the Jekyll Island Golf Club Master Plan.

If you have played at the Jekyll Island Golf Club within the past 12 months, please click on the link below and complete the survey. The survey is brief, and you are encouraged to be open and candid with your feedback.
