Online Gallery for Where Has Your SunSations Been?

Wondering where your friends and neighbors travel to? Check out the new online photo gallery for Where Has Your SunSations Been?
 
Due to the high volume of submissions and the limited space in SunSations, the Communication Department cannot guarantee that photos submitted for Where Has Your SunSations Been? will appear in the magazine. The Where Has Your SunSations Been? feature is extremely popular and with roughly 15,000 active adults always on the go, the volume of submissions is overwhelming. With such a large number of submissions, photos often were held for up to a year before there was space available to publish them.  
 
To avoid these delays, all submitted photos will be uploaded to an online photo gallery effective immediately, and a select few photos will be chosen to run in the magazine. If you do not see your photo in the magazine, please check the
gallery. The SunSations staff will include as many photos as possible in the magazine, space depending.
 
New photos will be uploaded to the gallery at the beginning of every month and will remain online for the remainder of that year.
 
We appreciate your participation with Where Has Your SunSations Been? Please continue to send us your photos from your travels and be sure to check the gallery to see where your friends and have been!

Hargray Broadband Project Underway

Hargray is installing its fiber optic network in the community. The construction process begins with a locating service where crews mark existing underground utilities with orange, red and blue paint and flags. Hargray’s construction crews will then follow within two to five business days using a minimally invasive directional boring method to install fiber optics within the existing utility easement. Use of this boring method reduces the need to dig trenches.
 
Underground construction is unpredictable, and as a result, there may be times where Hargray disturbs existing landscaping or damages unmarked services underground. In these instances, Hargray will promptly repair any damage to the property at its expense. If any utilities are disturbed during construction, Hargray will quickly remedy and restore the affected utility. If you notice a leaking water line, a wheezing gas line or lost power as a result of Hargray’s construction, call Hargray at 866-531-9276.
 
Please direct all questions or concerns about the installation to Hargray. Questions about construction updates can also be sent to Hargray. Contact information can be found on the Resident Central page of this website.

Executive Office

Find Your Community Associatin Offices
Lifestyle Services (event planning and room reservations) is located in Pinckney Hall. Most other Community Association offices, including Resident Services and Community Standards, are located in Palmetto Commons. Facilities and Common Area Maintenance offices are located in the Okatie Maintenance Yard on Hwy. 170.
 

Common Area Maintenance

Residents are reminded that it is illegal and dangerous to feed the alligators that live in Sun City Hilton Head’s ponds. Violators could face up to a $2,500 fine if caught feeding an alligator.
 
If an alligator sees humans as a food source, it has a reason to approach them and could become aggressive, meaning it will have to be removed from the community and destroyed. Children and pets should not go near the water’s edge of lagoons.
 
Alligators in a pond or lagoon are a sign of a healthy ecosystem and do not represent a problem with the fish. An alligator in Sun City’s lagoons or on a bank of a lagoon is not an aggressive alligator.
 
If you think you have an aggressive alligator on your property, contact Common Area Maintenance at (843) 705-4061 during business hours or Security at (843) 705-4083 after hours. They will review the situation and determine the best course of action.
