Mainland Planning Commission

Mainland Planning Commission, Island Planning Commission, and Board of Appeals

The Mainland Planning Commission makes decisions and recommendations on matters concerning the growth and development of the County, specifically as it applies to the unincorporated area other than St. Simons Island, Sea Island, Little St. Simons Island, and Jekyll Island.
