A recent Packet editorial noted with concern that Hilton Head Island's Design Review Board had approved the $1.9 million airport terminal project and made several important commercial traffic points.
Today's terminal shortcomings at Hilton Head Island Airport are the lack of toilet facilities within the secured area and "tired" furnishings. Can this issue be resolved for less than $1.9 million? Of course. Work could start this fall. Why embark on a major expansion before the town and Beaufort County give final approval to both phases of the airport master plan?
