The Town of Hilton Head Island on Tuesday announced the acquisition of a 1.07 acre tract at the corner of William Hilton Parkway (U.S. 278) and Spanish Wells Road for $136,000.

"With the volume of traffic along the U.S. 278 corridor, we thought it was appropriate to act on this land offer and potentially reduce additional traffic in the area had the property been developed," said Town Manager Steve Riley. "The purchase of this site adds to our bank of green space and fits within our plans to use such spaces for continued beautification along our main road."

"I am pleased that the Town continues to acquire land for green space, thereby protecting our environment by preserving open space," said Mayor John McCann.

Proceeds from prior land sales were used to buy the land.  The Town last purchased property in April when it acquired a 4.75 acre tract bordered by William Hilton Parkway and Main Street. With today's acquisition, the Town's inventory of land includes 146 parcels totaling 1,303.06 acres, with a total expenditure of $175.59 million.
