The Hilton Head Island Welcome Center might say goodbye as a heap of rubble.
The Hilton Head Island Town Council will consider demolishing the building at its 4 p.m. meeting today. Town staff has said the building, constructed in the 1970s, is not worth repairing and recommended razing it.
The Hilton Head Island-Bluffton Chamber of Commerce closed the welcome center in October after a survey found that more travelers are looking for vacation information online.
The chamber has said it intends to set up iPad kiosks around the island at high-traffic areas, such as the airport, hotels, resorts and chamber offices, where visitors can access information previously available at the welcome center.
