    The decline in availability and attainability of both housing and childcare options are detrimental to the continued growth of the island. Both should be addressed as top priority in order to enhance the appeal of the island to the current and potential citizens who keep the island's economy moving.

Open Town Hall HHI is not a certified voting system or ballot box. As with any public comment process, participation in Open Town Hall HHI is voluntary. The comments in this record are not necessarily representative of the whole population, nor do they reflect the opinions of any government agency or elected officials.

Your answers will NOT be saved

This is the form that was used to collect comments. It's here so you can try it and see how it worked when the topic was open.

The topic is now closed, and anything you enter into this form will not be saved.

Sign in and be yourself

Sign in and let others know who you are and what you think. You can sign in now or after you submit your comment. You'll be able to read your comment on this website and change it if you change your mind.

Open Town Hall HHI has two participation channels:

  • The Registered Channel: Sign in before or just after you submit your comment. Either way, Community Feedback will show your comment on this website.
  • The Unregistered Channel: Don't sign in and remain anonymous. Community Feedback will just share your comment with Hilton Head Island staff.

Note: The first time you sign in, you'll need to register (establish an account on Open Town Hall HHI). Registration is free.

The Town of Hilton Head Island has contracted with Community Feedback to monitor comments shown on this website.

  • To prevent any single user from dominating the forum, the Town of Hilton Head Island restricts the number of comments any one user can post on selected topics. Registration helps Community Feedback enforce this restriction.
  • Users, staff and government leaders often want to know the neighborhood from which a comment is posted. Community Feedback uses registration to show the neighborhood next to each comment (not the address).
  • If a user posts a comment that does not meet the Town of Hilton Head Island guidelines for civility, Community Feedback uses the user's email address to invite the user to resolve the issue.

Community Feedback will get your contact information. The company is under contract with the Town of Hilton Head Island to hold it in strict confidence per their privacy policy.

  • Since you'll see your own comment on Open Town Hall HHI, you'll be able to confirm that your comment was posted as you intended.
  • You'll be able to change and/or delete your comment as long as the topic is open.

Yes. Sign out, then set your privacy preference to be "No - just show it without my name to staff". You won't need to register.

While no authentication procedure can perfectly detect every fraudulent registration, Community Feedback is able to secure the registered channel against systematic fraud: cases where users submit enough statements with fraudulent registrations to sway the overall interpretation of the feedback.

Community Feedback is unable to secure the unregistered channel against systematic fraud, because unregistered users are anonymous.

Neither the registered nor the unregistered channel represent a certified voting system or ballot box - and that caveat is footnoted on every page of feedback. Instead, both are additional channels for feedback to government.

Users can participate on the registered channel (by signing in) or on the unregistered channel (by remaining anonymous). The Town of Hilton Head Island offers both channels in order to broaden participation and maximize decision makers' insights.

The registered channel enables users to assure decision makers that their feedback comes from a real person in a specific neighborhood. It also enables users to participate in a public discussion on the website, as well as manage their own comment after posting it.

The unregistered channel is for users who want to provide quick feedback without registering, and/or whose privacy concerns would prevent them from participating if required to register. Because many users with valuable insights will only share them anonymously, this channel gives decision makers the option to consider those insights in their deliberations.

OpenGov is a non-partisan company whose mission is to broaden civic engagement and build public trust in government. The Town of Hilton Head Island has contracted with OpenGov to administer Open Town Hall HHI.
