The March/April 2019 issue of Business View Magazine is spotlighting Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, in an exclusive feature titled "A Pretty Special Place" - part of the magazine's City View focus on sustainability in growing communities across the United States and Canada.

In this in-depth feature on "America's Favorite Island," Town Manager Stephen Riley notes that Hilton Head Island is the only community in the nation, that he knows of, with its own source of funding for beach renourishment. "Obviously, the beach is one of our key attractions," he says. "So, its continued health and availability is a key to the long-term success of our community. We do a major beach renourishment project about every seven or eight years. We don't rely on the state; we don’t rely on the feds; we're self-sufficient. The most recent one was a $20 million project. We put a tax on our tourists - a two percent fee on their lodging. So, the visitors who enjoy the beach help to maintain it."

Concerned about over-development and preserving green space, Hilton Head Island has invested over $150 million in 25-plus years and acquired close to 1,500 acres of land. According to Riley, "We have one major highway, U.S. 278, that comes from the mainland and travels a good part of the length of the Island. Because of our efforts and the efforts of some private developers to set aside some green space in their developments, more than half of the frontage on our major road is permanently green. There's no other town that can say that about their main drag. It’s been a pretty incredible conservation effort."
