2.   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, to aid in the renovation of Nance Plaza, 825 North Kings Highway.  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 lclever@cityofmyrtlebeach.comTo learn more about the National Association of Realtors® Placemaking Grant program, see

Photos of the Week.  A contractor is preparing for a 10-foot asphalt path around the lake at Thunderbolt Park, just west of the entrance to the International Technology and Aerospace Park (ITAP).  The park and lake are on Farrow Parkway, west of The Market Common.  The path will give walkers, joggers, bicyclists and others a way to enjoy the park scenery and get some exercise.  An additional path will be built on the airport side of the adjacent lake, too, completing the path.  Thunderbolt Park is an extension of Myrtle Beach’s Grand Park system of parks, lakes and trails in the Market Common area.
