Zoning & Subdivision Regulations Update

Glynn County has contracted with a team of consultants led by TSW to conduct an update of our zoning ordinance and other county ordinances that regulate development.  The goals of this effort are to:

 • Support the implementation of Envision Glynn

 • Advance the vision of local residents and businesses

 • Encourage appropriate growth and promote economic development

 • Balance development rights with sound planning principles 

 • Preserve natural resources while considering community resiliency and the impacts of sea level rise

 • Ensure that regulations are easy to understand and administer

 • Establish the right amount of regulation to address local needs
