On St. Simons Island a developer has applied to have land at the corner of South Harrington and Frederica rezoned to allow a Publix and several other stores. We don't dislike Publix or the developer.
We just don't think this is the right place for the shopping center for a number of reasons.
The signatures here oppose the rezoning of the Bennie's Red Barn property (at the Southeast corner of South Harrington and Frederica roads).
It would allow a 45,600-square-foot Publix store and other shops to be built. It would include hundreds of parking spaces over acres of asphalt, cause flooding and create unsafe traffic situations.
The No Publix Rezoning on St. Simons Island petition to county commission was written by Al and is in the category Government at GoPetition.
