County to consider renourishment amendment

The Glynn County Commission is scheduled to meet tomorrow to discuss a proposed ordinance amendment and a conditional use permit.

The Sea Island Co. is seeking Department of Natural Resources approval to renourish its beach. Before that can happen, Sea Island needs county approval. County officials would be able to send a letter of approval to the DNR if the amendment is approved.

Jerry’s Doog House, a hotdog vendor in the Pier Village, is asking for a conditional use permit to continue operating.

County planning and zoning staff recommended deferral of a sign variance request on the agenda, which would allow a sign larger than ordinances permit at Popeyes Chicken’s new location on U.S. Highway 341.

The Glynn County Commission will meet at 6 p.m. Thursday in the Old Glynn County Courthouse, 701 G St. in Brunswick.
