City commissioners and Glynn County commissioners will consider adopting resolutions in support of the proposed multi-million-dollar revitalization of Jekyll Island when they meet separately this week.

The city commission will meet for its regular session at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at Old City Hall on Newcastle Street. County commissioners will meet in regular session at 6 p.m. Thursday at the old county courthouse.

Brunswick Mayor Bryan Thompson will ask the city commission to endorse the Jekyll Island project, according to the city's published agenda.

County Commissioner Uli Keller is sponsoring the resolution on the county agenda.

The county commission is already on record of supporting the project. Glynn County Chair Don Hogan told members of the Jekyll Island Legislative Oversight Committee during a meeting in Atlanta in January that the county commission endorses the project.

Revitalization plans call for new hotels, new commercial district and a new convention center, as well as condominiums for full-time and part-time residents.

Park advisory board to meet

The Selden Park Advisory Board will meet Tuesday.

The meeting will be at 7 p.m. in the Selden Park Conference Room.
