02/13 - We all should support Chapman's legislation

Didn't you mean to write "Legislation could help save Jekyll"? Thank goodness for Senator Chapman. We should all be supporting him, your paper included.

This money, power, and land grab paraded as positive for Jekyll Island is a ludicrous joke. I do not know of anyone who visits Jekyll Island regularly that believes this planned development will be a positive in any way.

Jekyll is all about being outdoors, with easy and direct access to public beaches, and unobstructed views of the coastline.

Fancy shopping, additional hotels, high-rise condos, traffic, etc. do not belong there. We have St. Simons for that.

Jekyll is one of the last undeveloped strips of coast left. It needs to stay that way. Do we really want Jekyll to turn into Hilton Head or Myrtle Beach? Anyone else who feels this way should visit and help stop this madness.
