Hilton Head Island – Our Future Engagement

From the microcosm of the Think Tank environment, the visioning process moves out in the next phase of engagement into the wider Hilton Head Island community. For the overall Hilton Head Island – Our Future visioning process to be successful, it is essential that there is broad engagement across Hilton Head Island. Citizens from across Hilton Head Island will be able to attend and participate in community engagement sessions throughout August, September and October 2017.

The Think Tank workshop group will be invited to reconvene in October 2017 to work further on the Visioning process. This will be followed by additional focus group sessions with community members to further validate the engagement process results and reports.
Based on the information gathered from the compilation of all reports, engagement results and analyses, Future iQ will work closely with the Hilton Head Island – Our Future Vision Project Management Team to synthesize the information in order to generate an initiative and priority project matrix. These initiatives and priorities will be produced in the form of a prioritization matrix and will provide the basis for the Implementation Action Plan to be presented as part of the final Strategic Roadmap.

The Implementation Plan will recommend an immediate course of action to implement the Community Vision. The Implementation Plan will provide 3 and 5-year goals including achievable milestones to facilitate program creation. There will be a drawing together of the implementation action plan with all reports and results of research, engagement, and analysis into an initial draft of the 3 and 5-year Strategic Roadmap. The Roadmap will identify:

  • Community Vision
  • Goals & Objectives
  • Strategies & Tactics
  • Implementation Measures
  • Anticipated Outcomes

Please take part in our Engagement Workshops!

You’re invited to help shape your Town’s future by taking part in an upcoming engagement workshop. These workshops are part of the Town of Hilton Head Island’s long term visioning process, Our Future, which will help create an inclusive vision and roadmap for the Island for the next 10 to 20 years.

There will be 20-30 individual workshops held between August and October. The first set of workshops is listed below, and more events will be added soon. Stay tuned!
