STOP THE DOWNTOWN BRUNSWICK JAIL EXPANSION

As a citizen of the United States and a Resident of Glynn County I am signing this petition as a formal protest against the expansion now planned for the Glynn County Detention Center/Jail located in Brunswick, GA. It is counter to the master plan for revitalization of Downtown Historical Brunswick. It is an abuse of power by the County to enact Eminent Domain for a jail and to remove citizens from their homes. The County and City hired and paid for with tax payer dollars for a study to be done on what to do with the jail. This study DID NOT propose this solution. The County Commissioners and the City Commissioners need to answer to the Citizens why they have refused to follow the advice they sought and take a path that was not agreed to by the outside contractor nor by the Citizens of Glynn County. THIS PETITION IS BEING SIGNED TO STOP THIS EXPANSION AND FOR THE COMMISSIONERS TO HOLD OPEN HEARINGS INCLUDING THE CITIZENS TO DETERMINE THE BEST LOCATION FOR A JAIL IN THIS COUNTY. WE DEMAND THIS EXPANSION STOP IMMEDIATELY.

Do not build the jail on Newcastle street where everyone can see it, like the out of town visitors and the boaters on the water front. But build the jail behind the Courthouse on I street, between Reynolds street and Union street. This way the Jail will not be seen and it will be very close to the Courthouse. This is the best solution for everyone.
