Current Situation
Expand the sections below to view the Current Situation 

Experiencing Record-High Occupancy
  • Popular COVID and Post-COVID destination
  • Partially due to increased property owner occupancy
  • In large part, due to increased property owner guests, short term rentals, and visitors
Traffic & Asset Management
  • The Greenwood and Ocean Gates and traffic patterns in these areas have not been addressed due to a lack of funding. Traffic continues to be an issue.
  • Sea Pines Gates are at capacity with the current resources and configuration.
Demand for Sea Pines CSA Related Services Have Increased
  • Public Safety Services- Sea Pines CSA is the 1st line of security for our community, as the Town of Hilton Head Island does not have its own police force.
  • Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office (BSCO) serves the entire County, including the Hilton Head Island area, and has struggled to get to full staff.
  • Land Use Management and compliance issues.
Sea Pines CSA Staffing Challenges
  • Current Job Market
    • Local demand for labor is high and the pool of applicants is small
    • Competing offers
    • Higher hourly rates
    • Sign on + staying bonuses
  • Geographic Location
    • Our geographic location means staff must commute to Sea Pines at their own cost
    • More remote than competing communities making Sea Pines less attractive as an employer

Proposed Solutions

  • Add Additional Law Enforcement Patrol Positions
  • Add Additional Gate Attendants
  • Add Additional Land Use Management Staff
  • Provide Competitive Compensation To Recruit And Retain High-Quality Employees
  • Reconfigure Gates and Facilities Associated with Gate Pass Sales
