Circle to Circle: Planning for Sea Pines to Coligny Circle: Your input requested

Author: Special to CH2

During the 1960s and early ‘70s, the Coligny Circle area became the commercial hub of the island. It was spawned by and grew because of its proximity to the beach, the concentration of cottages along North and South Forest Beach Drives, nearby hotels, and the growing population of Sea Pines Plantation.

The functional character of the area was that of a small town center. It was the “Downtown” of Hilton Head Island. This relaxed atmosphere and subdued architecture helped shape the first impressions of island visitors.

The Circle to Circle Committee has been chartered by Town Council to develop an area master plan for Coligny Circle through the Sea Pines Circle area, and seeks community input in defining what this area should be 10-15 years from now. You are invited to learn more about this process and to provide input at a series of public forums scheduled during the month of May.

Detailed information including locations and schedules of community forums will be available on the town website, hiltonheadislandsc.gov. Your input is critical in molding the future character of this area. 
