Construction updates for Jekyll Island?

The Jekyll Island Authority page for revitalization updates is not working. Does anyone have any current information regarding the status of the construction?

Last time we were on the island the area around the construction was a mess, the bike path hard to find and the village in a bunch of trailers. We fell in love with the island and will be returning this winter. What is the progress now? (we were there Jan 2012)

No construction mess of any kind.

I was there last week. The stores are still in the trailers and the village construction has not begun.

Honestly, I hope they never build the village. It was so nice to come onto the island and see no commercial buildings. It's the kind of entry that an island focusing on nature should have..

There's a new entry gate and a visitor's center/gift shop before that on the causeway. But once you are on the island, you see where the village will be (some day) and the new convention center. Otherwise, no construction going on at all (as of last week).

Do you know: If we stay for a month at the campground, do we pay a fee everytime we come back from siteseeing? If so, maybe it is better to just get a state park pass.

thanks

For a month, buy an annual decal. It's cheaper and faster coming back in (use the decal pass lane)

What do you guys mean by shops in trailers? Is this an eyesore? Coming in August. Haven't been in several years. Hoping for natural beauty!!!
