Hilton Head’s tourist hub is getting a makeover. But not everyone is on board.

The hotly-debated plans to redevelop Hilton Head Island’s main tourist destination took another step this week as the town released a bid for a contractor.

It also will include street improvements to Lagoon Road, Nassau Street and South Forest Beach Drive.
