    My views about Short Term Rentals:
    • Short-Term Rentals are a part of Hilton Head Island’s resort destination and will continue to support Hilton Head’s economy in harmony with residential areas. STRs are the engine that fuels the local business economy, providing service jobs for the workforce, contributing to the local infrastructure for schools, roadways, bike paths, police and fire services, and other projects which benefit the community at large.

    • As new development is planned for future open spaces, there is an opportunity to further address issues in a Long Term Master Plan that addresses a number of concerns in the Jonesville Preservation Society’s survey. A comprehensive plan is an important planning tool to create a vision of the island for 2023 and beyond.

    • There are areas of the island without their own development guidelines. Sea Pines, Shipyard, and Palmetto Dunes, are established communities that have addressed residential areas and short-term rentals co-existing together. Organizing a planning effort with citizen involvement to address communities without development guidelines, is needed.

    • Hilton Head’s tourist economy is generally composed of families due to the Island’s reputation as a family destination. Families often need more space than a hotel room and look for alternatives better suited for them such as villa or house. If they cannot find a place to stay within their budget, they will find another destination and HHI will lose this revenue.

    • There is a need to plan for the future. Covid has changed how people live, work, and vacation and it is important to address this new normal in future strategic planning as more people visit and reside on the Island.
    Thank you.

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.

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.
