We are seeking citizens to serve and contribute their expertise on the following:

  • Design Review Board - Reviews, approves, and makes recommendations on exterior design decisions in designated corridors. This board seeks design professionals such as graphic artists, architects, and landscape architects, and members who can serve at-large.
  • Planning Commission - Reviews and makes recommendations to the Town Council regarding land use, public projects, traffic plans, zoning, and amendments to the LMO. This commission seeks architects, landscape architects and at-large members.

If you are interested, please visit hiltonheadislandsc.gov/boards to apply online or to view meeting schedules, board duties, and past agendas and minutes. At this time, all Town meetings are being held virtually for the safety of board members.
