The Town of Hilton Head Island Intergovernmental Committee has scheduled a special meeting on Wednesday, September 28, 2011 at 5:30pm in the Benjamin M. Racusin Council Chambers at Hilton Head Island Town Hall located at 1 Town Center Court, Hilton Head Island.
This meeting is being conducted to solicit public input and review the proposed Town of Hilton Head Island redistricting plans based on the Census 2010 population information.
As each decennial Census is completed jurisdictions are required to review population and demographic information and determine if adjustments are required for political districts. If adjustments are needed, there are controls in place that attempt to minimize the boundary shifts and disrupt the fewest number of districts as possible. As a result of the 2010 US Census the Town of Hilton Head Island is required to review and make recommendations to the US Department of Justice for redistricting.
