Codified JIA Ordinances

The Second Reading of the Codified Jekyll Island Authority Ordinances will be presented to the Jekyll Island Authority Board for consideration at the October 17, 2023 Board Meeting.

The first reading of the Codified Jekyll Island Authority Ordinances took place at the September 19, 2023 JIA Board Meeting. 


Code Revision Project

The Code Revision Project seeks to revise the Jekyll Island Authority Code of Ordinances and Design Review Guidelines to provide an updated, organized, and concise Code that clearly details processes and procedures.

This project is being led by Goodwyn, Mills, Cawood, Inc. (GMC), alongside the Jekyll Island Authority, with anticipated completion in 2022.


Second Reading

The second reading of the Jekyll Island Code Revision Project is available below as approved by the JIA Board without further revisions. At this time, the appropriate annotation indexing and references for the final version are under development.
