    The Hilton Head Island Town Council is meeting on Tuesday, August 31 at 3:00 pm for “Review and Discussion of Preliminary Local Concepts and Key Project Enhancements for the William Hilton Parkway Gateway Corridor”. The meeting will be conducted virtually and can be viewed on the Town of Hilton Head Island Public Meetings Facebook Page.


    https://www.facebook.com/townofhiltonheadislandmeetings


    Below is COIN’s Response to Latest MKSK 278 Project Preliminary Concepts:


    After review of the slide deck of the MKSK Open House Presentation of Preliminary Local Concepts and Key Project Enhancements for the SCDOT 278 Corridor Project, COIN notes the following:


    MKSK has developed some significant improvements to the SCDOT 278 Corridor plan including:


    1. Design of a meandering, landscaped roadway to create a traffic calming parkway.
    2. Separation of multi-use trails and sidewalks from roadway to improve pedestrian and cyclist safety along the sides of the roadway.
    3. Retaining eastbound left turn onto Squire Pope Rd and eliminating SCDOT’s U-turn and turn signal at Old Wild Horse Road.
    4. Using “smart technology” for all traffic signals.


    However, there remain significant deficiencies with this modified design which require additional development:


    1. With 6 through lanes, the impact to the Stoney community is still a greatly increased right-of-way from 78 feet to 118 feet, a 51% increase. This impact on the Stoney community remains unacceptable.
    2. Additional turn lanes at Squire Pope Road and Spanish Wells/Wild Horse Road intersections are not acceptable and worsen safety issues for crossing cyclists and pedestrians.
    3. No overhead pedestrian and bicyclists crossings are considered even though the Stoney Initiative Area Plan includes that as a goal and a strategy.
    4. Addition of bridge aesthetics is a good beginning, but a 6-lane expressway and wide aircraft carrier-like structure is still unacceptable.

     

    In addition, there has been no study of key components COIN previously identified which will provide a sound value analysis for this project:

     

    • SCDOT’s flawed traffic model has not been replaced. Hilton Head Island population and traffic counts are currently different than SCDOT’s forecast which requires comprehensive revision of the traffic model.


    • A 4-lane option has not been considered.


    • Failure to include a Cross-Island Parkway connector when the toll-free road now exceeds forecasted volumes.


    • No “Base Alternative” has been evaluated as the low-cost option (“Base Alternative” would replace single structurally deficient bridge, use smart technology at all traffic signals, increase safe access and pedestrian crossings, and add safe bicycle and pedestrian facilities).


    • Failure to produce any end-to-end performance metrics and updated cost estimate. How can Town Council, County Council and the community evaluate the cost vs. benefits without data? 

      

    COIN calls for continuation of MKSK’s work to fix the remaining deficiencies of SCDOT’s plan and expansion of MKSK’s scope of work to include our key components. Once completed, there will be a suitable comparison of the alternatives to make the right decision on this once-in-a-generation infrastructure project.

    DEFENDING OUR DEMOCRACY:

                          
    In concert with Black Votes Matter (BVM), Sun City Indivisible and Lowcountry Indivisible, we are supporting the Freedom Ride for Voting Rights which will take place across the South beginning on June 19 and culminate in a rally in Washington, DC on June 26.
     
    BVM’s Freedom Rides for Voting Rights continues the tradition of the original Freedom Rides as more than 40 states consider legislation to restrict voting rights.  
     

    The Freedom Ride event will be at the State House (1100 Gervais St, Columbia, SC 29208) in Columbia, SC on Tuesday, June 22 from 2 to 4 PM.  If you are interested in participating in the event, we are coordinating carpools that will leave the Hardeeville area from the Walmart parking lot at 10:15 AM.  Look for the American flag by the corner closest to the gas station.  Bring signs saying “Protect Voting Rights” as well as water and snacks.
     
    Contact Jerry Whalen
     replyLCI@gmail.com or Pam Reading-Smith suncityindivisible@gmail.com for more information and to schedule your participation.  Please put Freedom Ride in the subject line.

    To All Democrats:

     

    Exciting plans are underway.  As you know, by statute, we reorganize the Precincts every two years - but we are starting early this election season to be up and running at the start of 2022.   We already have 2 Democratic candidates running for US Senate and 3 Democratic candidates running for SC Governor (time for Gov. McMaster to retire).

     

    To kick off - the BCDP is hosting a Virtual Precinct Training Session specifically geared to the Hilton Head precincts (such as covering how to organize gated communities, etc.).   We urge all of those interesting in preparing for the 2022 elections to attend - and please pass on this opportunity to anyone you think might be interested.  Membership in the SOB Club is not required to be part of a precinct team.

     

    If you are interested in attending this training - please RVSP to:  SOBDemClub@gmail.com and you will be sent a Zoom link.   

     

    We need all of you - please plan to attend.
