Town of Hilton Head Island
On December 8 the Hilton Head Town Council adopted a resolution to contract with the SC Revenue and Fiscal Affairs Office to develop baseline maps by the end of the year. After the receipt of those maps, the Town Council staff will begin to develop proposed maps to fit the shifting population within the Town limits to be publicized for public comment prior to final adoption. The Town of Hilton Head is holding public hearings on their proposed maps through February 2022.
