Hilton Head Airport Environmental Assessment Meeting
Monday, April 21, 2014
Hilton Head Library
5:00 to 8:00 P.M.
In accordance with Federal Aeronautics Administration (FAA) policy, the above-noted meeting is scheduled so that interested parties can gain access to the documentation and conclusions reached regarding the environmental impact of the proposed expansion of the Hilton Head Island airport. The meeting is more of an “open house” wherein participants can attend at any time between the 5:00 and 8:00 P.M. time frame. The airport’s consultants will have displays of data including maps, diagrams, overhead photographs and other documents relating to the impact of the proposed expansion on water quality, wildlife, trees, noise levels, historical landmarks, etc. The consultants will also make themselves available to answer questions.
From our examination of the various documents, the consultants have concluded that there are no adverse environmental impacts. Regardless, it is very important that Port Royal Plantation landowners attend and, by doing so, evidence interest in this project which is occurring so close to where we live. There will be sign-in sheets to record attendance. There will also be forms on which to record questions and/or comments. All questions/comments will be attached to the final Environmental Assessment as it goes for FAA review.
The full Environmental Assessment is currently on display at the library in the reading room at the back. You can review it at any time.
Please try to attend and let the Beaufort County Council and the FAA know that you are interested and concerned with what they are about with this project. We are dealing with them on other aspects of the expansion and evidence of landowners’ interest can be key in the successful resolution of these other matters.
The work area will be from the Beach house to Drayton Place. It is extremely important that this area not be used for beach access. The beach house access will be open and we strongly encourage you to use this point of access.
