USC campus wrong for Coligny Circle area

info@islandpacket.comNovember 1, 2013 

As a property owner and resident of Hilton Head Island, I strongly oppose a branch of the University of South Carolina Beaufort in the Coligny Circle area. The increased pedestrian and vehicle traffic will burden an area that is already congested. It will also require increased police coverage to monitor underage drinking. A USCB development will also result in a reduction in available land on which the town can assess property taxes. Town Council cannot allow this to happen.
