SPLOST 2021 Public Safety Projects
These are the approved Public Safety projects to be funded by SPLOST 2021.
Glynn County Projects
This is a joint-use station serving the airport and surrounding community. It is old and undersized. The cost of this station will be shared 50% with the FFA. New station needed to provide additional resources to respond to growth at airport and surrounding areas.
Current courthouse at capacity with courts spread throughout the community, causing higher operating costs and not adequate for future needs. This will provide one location for all courts, cutting operational costs of upkeep and protection. Addresses future court needs in the future.
FFA mandating safety improvements to meet current level of use.
Jekyll Island Projects
Funds would rehabilitate and construct 7.44 miles of beachfront, riverfront, and interior bike paths. All paths would meet bike path standards to ensure the biking experience on Jekyll Island remains one of the island’s greatest assets for locals and guests.
Constructed in 1969, the Calm Creek Fishing Pier is heavily used by Glynn County fishermen and Golden Isles visitors alike. Two support pilings on the western side of the pier were initially damaged in a boating accident, and several storms have further degraded the area as unsafe. The two pilings would be replaced and a new upgraded, ADA compliant handrail system installed to enhance public safety.
City of Brunswick Projects
Replacement of police vehicles and equipment to provide sufficient equipment to support public safety and community policing
Replacement of fire truck and associated equipment and to enhance the capabilities of the fire services to address fires in larger, taller structures.
