Public Input

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.

Golf Master Plan RFP
For background on the Golf Master Plan project, The Jekyll Island Authority has held several public meetings to secure input on the future of golf on Jekyll Island. The Authority most recently submitted a Request for Proposal for a Golf Master Plan from firms that specialized in Master Plan development, with emphasis in golf course redevelopment, layout and redesign, with an eye on future use of the golf courses and any proposed reuse of acreage.

The RFP process was the result of an assessment and recommendation from the National Golf Foundation Consulting, Inc. (NGF) of the operational and economic performance of the Jekyll Island Golf Club. A copy of the NGF report can be found at http://www.jekyllisland.com/jekyll-island-authority/jekyll-island-authority-golfprogram/. In addition to the NGF report, a Request for Information (#240) was issued to gather information to aid in the consideration of available resources, methods, or conditions under which Respondents may be interested in assisting JIA achieve its goal of improving the Jekyll Island Golf Club. Public input sessions and public working group meetings with the JIA Board regarding the future of JIA golf were also held.
