Meetings and Events


Port of St. Marys DRI

The development team involved with repurposing the former Durango / Gilman mill site in St. Marys will be hosting two public information sessions on December 5th and December 15th at St. Marys Elementary School.  These sessions will be hosted by Mr. Chris Ragucci of The Port of St. Marys LLC, and will provide citizens an opportunity to better understand the group's request to rezone the property and their site development plan along with potential eventual end users.  The sessions will be held at St. Marys Elementary on December 5th from 10:00-12:00 and December 15th from 6:00-8:00.

The Port of St. Marys, LLC, has submitted a Rezone application with the City of St. Marys for the 722 acre tract of land formerly home to the Durango Paper Mill. The Rezone application requests a change from its current classification of PD (Planned Development Mixed Use) to a PD (Planned Development Industrial) district under Section 110-68 of the City of St. Marys Zoning Ordinance.

Due to the anticipated size of the industry and the amount of land impacted, a Development of Regional Impact (DRI) will likely be triggered, whereby the local jurisdiction forwards the rezone request and development plans to the Coastal Regional Commission of Georgia for their review prior to any local action taking place.
