What we do…
The Board of Directors are property owners elected by the membership to govern the HHPPOA. The Staff is comprised of paid employees who work “on-site” at the Association Service Center within various departments which include: Administration, Architectural Review Board (Community Relations), Communications, Maintenance, Security, and Recreation. The top-level employee is the General Manager, followed by the Assistant General Manager, and five department managers who have appropriate support staff.
The Association’s operation, services, and structure are similar to that of a small-town government. While we do not maintain any of the individual homes, we do maintain all of the recreational facilities and commonly owned landscape areas. We also enforce the Rules and Regulations of the community, publish a monthly newsletter called Plantation Living, and provide various member services. There are approximately 4,200 homes within the community for an overall population of about 10,000. There are approximately 140 undeveloped home sites. Hilton Head Plantation is a small city within a city.
