Compass Rose Park, photographed in Friday, has replaced a tire store and restaurant that once sat at the corner of Pope Avenue and New Orleans Road. The park was one of the improvements made in the area by the Town of Hilton Head Island through a special property-tax district it now hopes to extend. Since creating the district in 1999, the town has spent close to $52 million on sewer, pathway, roadway and park construction and land purchases for future and existing development. As a result,  assessed property values within the district have increased 122 percent, compared to an overall 99 percent increase for all other properties on Hilton Head.
