Master Plan Coming for Historic Coast Guard Station

The Coastal Georgia Historical Society has teamed up with the Golden Isles Convention and Visitor’s Bureau to develop a master plan for the area around the Coast Guard Station on St. Simons Island. The Historical Society is investing $3.3 million in a Coast Guard Station museum. They now want to work with the community to develop a plan for the property around the Museum including the beach parking lot. A total of five public meetings will be held to gather community input for the plan. The first two meetings, which will be open forums, will be Thursday, Oct. 12 at 6:30 pm in the St. Simons Community Church, followed by a second forum on Tuesday, Oct. 23 at 6:00 pm in the Conference Center at the College of Coastal Georgia.
