Welcome to Myrtle Beach!


Here's what's happening...


Orange Box  Memorial Day Bikefest Plan...  The City of Myrtle Beach's draft plan for addressing traffic and other issues arising from the Atlantic Beach Memorial Day Bikefest in 2014 was presented at the September 9 Council meeting.  The Bikefest plan includes traffic safety and management solutions. 


Orange Box  Mini Marathon...  The Myrtle Beach Mini Marathon returns for a fifth year on Sunday, October 19, with some 5,000 runners.  The race begins at 7:00 a.m. at Coastal Grand Mall and finishes on the Boardwalk.  Drivers can expect lane and road closures that Sunday, but you will be able to get to your destination with a little advance planning.  Check the on-line map showing the race route and re-opening times for various intersections.


Orange Box  New zoning code takes effect...  After years of work, Myrtle Beach's new zoning code took effect on Monday, September 8.  Developed during more than a hundred public meetings and hearings, the new code has fewer total zones, is better organized and more reader-friendly.  Two new mixed-use districts will help create areas that are more walkable.  The new zoning map is available as a .pdf.  (It's 50 megabytes and takes time to open.)   


Orange Box  Fourth Avenue North Deepwater Ocean Outfall...  Work begins after Labor Day on a new deepwater ocean outfall at Fourth Avenue North.  Completion is scheduled for November 2015 on this $10.4 million project that will carry rainwater more than 1,000 feet off shore.  A print-on-demand brochure with details about the project and timeline is available on-line.


Orange Box  Solid waste fee increases...  Beginning with August utility bills, residents will notice a $2.40 per month increase in solid waste charges.  The rate increase will provide another three-person collection crew and truck to keep pace with residential growth.  The new monthly rate of $22.90 covers weekly curbside collection of solid waste, recycling, yard waste and bulky junk.


Orange Box  Sports Center sponsorships...  With construction well underway on the Myrtle Beach Sports Center, sponsorship opportunities are now available.  For more information about sponsorships at the Sports Center and other city recreation facilities, see  The Sports Center is on track for a spring 2015 opening.
