I oppose the proposed rehab facility on Main Street because it will have an adverse social and economic impact on all of the nearby businesses and customers who spill over to our library, park, and schools. I know this will happen from the experience in my hometown where a similar facility was permitted.
Here are the blunt, politically-incorrect questions the community deserves to have answered:
Although vagrancy and loitering are no longer prosecutable crimes, there is little doubt that they detract from the social texture of a community, especially one built upon tourism, hospitality, and a family-friendly environment like Hilton Head.
The town is on the verge of cutting a hole in our community fabric and creating permanent policing issues. So reject it.
