A new city park is being built across Singleton Beach Road on the North side of the resort. A traffic light is planned at 278 and Singleton Beach Rd to handle the park traffic. Overflow parking for this park has already been built next to the resort near our boardwalk. A road connecting our resort to Singleton Beach road, the new Park parking lot and the new housing development next door has already been completed. The new road ends at our wooden fence on the north side near the building one trash dumpster. A gate will definitely be placed there for Emergency and Fire access.
The city would like for us to consider 2 possibilities:
Add a rear automatic gate at building one so that cars can exit via Singleton Beach Road. This gate would be for exits only. This would make left turns on 278 easy at the traffic light.
OR, move our entrance and guard house to the new road. This is very costly and highly unlikely without the city's help.
Another proposed change is to our entrance on 278:
Or, we would exit via an automatic gate at building one and turn left onto 278 at the Singleton Beach Rd traffic light.
The city also hopes to station life guards on our beach. The property would continue to be owned by Hilton Head Resort.
When asked if they would declare "imminent domain" and take away our beach property, the answer was no, that the park will already have beach access near the rocks on Singleton Beach past the housing development and that "The city doesn't do that".
In any case, it appears we will lose our "private beach", but we are also gaining some new amenities with the park next door. Nature trails, ball fields and a play ground are planned. The new housing development promises to raise property values and appearances around us significantly.
The changes to our entrance/exits should be much safer.
