Headline Goes Here

BRUNSWICK, Ga. - Local leaders are trying to find out what a landowner plans to do with 416 acres of land that includes wetlands near the Georgia coast.

Glynn County Commissioner Michael Browning says he has a duty to find out what the plan entails, but so far it remains a mystery.

The Brunswick News reports that land owner Francis Williams of St. Marys has twice had his request for a rezoning of the land near Sterling removed from Mainland Planning Commission agendas.

The general descriptions in the rezoning application of plans for a self-sustaining community with its own roads, water and sewer system, and a community garden and barn.

Neither Williams nor local engineer Chris Amos, who is acting as an agent for Williams, are talking about the plans.
