Please join us and help shape your Town's future by attending an upcoming Our Future engagement workshop!

Over the past several months, the Hilton Head Island - Our Future visioning project has been holding events and engagement workshops all over the island to learn what residents want to see in the future. To date, approximately 450 people have attended an engagement workshop and over 2,000 have completed an online survey to share their ideas about the future of our community.

Starting this month, the project will be holding the second round of engagement workshops from October 19-25. These workshops, which will be the same presentation as the previous August sessions, are part of the Town's long term visioning process, Our Future, which will create an inclusive vision and roadmap for the Island for the next 10 to 20 years. All residents and stakeholders are encouraged to attend one of the workshops and provide input.
