HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) - After years of debate the Town of Hilton Head Island is moving forward on one of the most expensive municipal project in town history - a $16 million redevelopment of the Coligny area near Sea Pines Plantation.

The area is the posh resort’s most popular tourist destination and The Island Packet of Hilton Head reports (https://bit.ly/2aq4WsKs ) that town officials said Monday work is expected to begin later this year.

The plans call for developing a new public park and playground as well as a new building for the local children’s museum.

The work is expected to take just over a year to complete.

The town acquired the 15-acre tract about 20 years ago and there have been discussions ever since about how to use the land.
