Nance Plaza receives $4,500 grant

Myrtle Beach’s Nance Plaza has received a Placemaking Grant from the National Association of Realtors® to assist in its upcoming makeover.  The $4,500 grant will be used by the Coastal Carolinas Association of Realtors® (CCAR), in partnership with Myrtle Beach’s Downtown Development Office.  The funds will help add additional landscaping and seating to prepare Nance Plaza as a main feature of the city’s new Arts & Innovation District.  

“CCAR is honored to be part of the continued beautification of Nance Plaza and to play a small role in the transformation of the Myrtle Beach downtown area.  The Arts & Innovation District will be the cornerstone of the re-birth of a vibrant downtown, attracting locals and visitors,” said Laura Crowther, Coastal Carolinas Association of Realtors® CEO.  The grant does not require matching funds from the city.  

Placemaking Grants are awarded to help Realtors® create new public spaces and destinations in their community.  For more information, contact Downtown Development Director Lauren Clever at  To learn more about the National Association of Realtors® Placemaking Grant program, see
