The Jekyll Island Master Plan

It is a critical tool for managing the balance of limited commercial and residential development, the conservation of the Island’s pristine and delicate ecosystem, and preservation of the Island’s natural and cultural resources. The new Jekyll Island Master Plan was adopted by the Jekyll Island Authority Board of Directors on December 16, 2013 at its regular board meeting.
