Until the fight is over, it ain't over. We need your help!

Skidaway Island, GA
Island Lifestyle at its best...but maybe not for long!

Please note this will be a long and drawn out process.

"We're doing this for our families and the place we call home." ....

After consulting with Landings residents (attorneys) who have  been through this process before and seen as they said "the ugly side of small town politics at play", we have been asked to challenge all residents of Skidaway Island to read all of the documents for yourself (don't pay attention the media...in a small town most media is biased to one-side or the other) pertaining to the Green Island Road Project.  "It's easy to be the big fish in a small pond." You can find all the documents at www.saveourskidaway.com   


July 22nd, 2109 NEXT STEPS 


The petitioner can appeal the current MPC decision to the Chatham County Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) - the MPC’s decision was to unanimously deny the general development plan based on it not being zoned properly for the senior citizen congregate care project he proposes. If the Chatham County Zoning Board of Appeals agrees with the MPC’s decision then he would have to take it to Superior Court; this would have to be done before he could even try to rezone it.

He could submit his appeal as early as this coming week, meaning it will come before the Zoning Board of Appeals at the next meeting, which is August 27th. We will have legal representation at the meeting as we have in the past. There will need to be a large presence at that meeting too. 


Please make the August 27th, 2019 meeting at the Zoning Board of Appeals. 


If you want to stop this development (decrease traffic, reduce the number of work vehicles coming onto the island, decrease the number of accidents coming onto the island, protect our water which is at risk now, protect wildlife (Eagles either nest or hunt the proposed proposed to be developed), and protect the quality of life on the island) you need to be present at the meeting on July 16th at 1:30 at 110 E State St, Savannah, GA 31401. Make no mistake, this is a political arena and without Skidaway Island residents present, they can pass this proposed development. It's of the greatest importance that all of us make it. All of us.

>>>As one of our local leaders in the healthcare industry (35 years plus) clearly stated, “This is suspicious. How could a “for-profit” assisted living facility be tagged "luxury"? It’s the furthest thing from the truth. I urge all residents of Skidaway Island to do their homework. If you wanted an assisted living facility in your backyard, you would want a “not-for-profit” assisted living facility.” Only the island is luxury...not the facility. They are using what the residents of Skidaway Island made luxury. Without the investment the local homeowners have put in place for decades, they couldn't market this property as luxury. Read case studies by  USNEWS and UMH and see why we would want a non-profit versus for-profit assisted living facility.  


Check out Sprenger Health Group's ratings. Please read them all so you can make a fair evaluation of this company. By the way, where are they going to find the people needed to run this facility? Savannah, historically speaking, has had an issue with qualified personnel to run assisted living facilities. With Thrive being built now (they will compete with this possible third facility) where are they going to find people needed to run this facility. 


The increased traffic onto Skidaway Island is unwanted and will increase accidents and create safety issues for our neighborhood. Crime always goes up during construction, and if they're successful at building the 216 units, we'll have endless traffic during the day (trucks, and lots of them) and additional traffic at night for all those needed to run the living facility.  Property values on Green Island Road and in South Harbor will drop.  The quiet South end of Skidaway Island will no longer be quiet and quaint. It will be destroyed by the sheer number of people and vehicles needed to develop and sustain this proposed project. Think about it...216 units. It will be one of the largest developments in Savannah for assisted living on a road that can barely handle the current traffic.

Lyrics
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot
With a pink hotel, a boutique
And a swinging hot spot
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got til its gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot
They took all the trees
And put 'em in a tree museum
And they charged the people
A dollar and a half to seem 'em
No no no
Don't it always seem to go,
That you don't know what you've got
Til its gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot
Hey farmer farmer
Put away the DDT
I don't care about spots on my apples
Leave me the birds and the bees
Please!
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
Til its gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot
Hey, now they paved paradise
To put up a parking lot
Why not?
Listenin' late last night
I heard the screen door slam
And a big yellow taxi
Took my girl away
Now, don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
Til its gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot
Hey now, now
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you got
Til its gone
They paved paradise
To put up a parking lot
Why not?
They paved paradise
To put up a parking lot
Hey hey hey
Paved paradise
To put up a parking lot
I don't want give it
Why you want give,
Why you want give it all away?
Hey hey hey
Now you want give it,
Ah she want to give it
Cause she givin' it all away
Now now now
I don't want give it
Why you want give,
Why you want give it all away?
Giving it all, giving it all away
Why you want it?
Why do you want it? (She's giving it all away)
Hey pave paradise
Put up a parking lot
