Hilton Head Island - Our Future, the Town of Hilton Head Island’s long-range visioning process, launched a new website (http://lab.future-iq.com/hhiourfuture/) and Community Survey this week.

The goal of Our Future is to ensure that residents, business owners, local institutions and all community stakeholders have a voice in future decision making, and to provide the Town with the insight needed to set intelligent, coordinated, and creative future priorities. The project, running through 2017 and wrapping up in early 2018, will engage the community in a series of conversations designed to identify scenarios for the future.

The new website will serve as an online lab where survey results and project reports will be presented as a unique, innovative and interactive data visualization that will allow community members to examine the data collected for themselves.

The Community Survey, which is currently open and accessible on the new Our Future website, will provide the initial foundation for gathering public input. Other engagement activities will include 20-30 workshops around the Island and online polling. The Town encourages residents to join the conversation by completing the survey, and also by signing up for the Our Future newsletter by visiting the website at http://lab.future-iq.com/hhiourfuture/ to stay up-to-date on progress and dates for upcoming workshops.
