Speaker:
John Cunningham introduced speaker Heather Raff who talked about the Greater Island Council Parks & Recreation Survey.
The greatest thing that they have done is opened the brand new Recreational Center last week.  She highly encourages all to take a tour.  The second best thing has been to publish a map - Cultural Trail - Art, history & pathways.  She kindly provided members with this fantastic map.  She has been an advocate for parks and recreation and feel parks bring the community together.  People want experiences within experiences.  We have great facilities but are always trying to improve and market them. The Greater Island Committe's goal is to better life on Hilton Head Island and Bluffton.  The Parks & Recreation Committee is made up of all volunteers who are community advocates and created a survey to serve the community.  It was presented to the public in various ways, POA's sent it out as well as placed on Next Door and Facebook.  They got 1300 responses in ten days.  54% of the responses came from Hilton Head Plantation, 10% Port Royal and lesser percentages from other areas of the Island.  Karen Kline did all the analysis.  According to the age demographics, the under 35 group were under represented, over 64 were adequately represented and the 55 to 64 age group were over represented.  2/3 of those living in a plantation said their recreational needs were not being met within their plantation.  The top five items that were felt to be needed are : Environmental Pathways; Recreation Complex; More Piers, Overlooks and Docks; Re-purposing Golf Course Land into Passive Use; Off Pathway/Road Trail Systems.  The need for a long distance pool and more pickleball courts was made known as well as resulting social exchange and experiences within experiences.   How you can help:  Participate; sign up to be in group; be an advocate; contact a council member.  Greater Island Committee, group of forty, will stay engaged and work with the town to continue to improve our island.  Some websites you might want to visit for more information about culture/recreation on the island are: www.culturehhi.org; www.bicyclehiltonheadisland.com
