Hilton Head Council Passes "Vision Statement"

Hilton Head Islanders are looking to the future. Last night, council passed the town's "vision statement," with five-year goals and an agenda for the new year. The top priorities: enhance the island's natural beauty and keep the same Low Country character and heritage, since it's all part of what attracts tens of thousands of visitors. At the same time, continue providing services to the people who live there year round.

The council created the vision statement in its annual goal-setting workshop last month.
