Myrtle Beach could force sale of two superblock properties

Two properties on the downtown superblock could be subject to eminent domain as Myrtle Beach works to advance a library and museum complex. Photographer Jack Thompson’s gallery, at 503 Ninth Ave. North, and House Parts LLC, a home fixture store at 801 N. Kings Hwy, each could be subject to a forced sale if city council votes to authorize the move in its Tuesday meeting.

Group gathers for last Saturday of free beach access parking on Golden Mile

A group of concerned citizens gathered for the last Saturday of free beach access parking at 38th Avenue North in Myrtle Beach. Rich Malzone, a spokesman for "Make Myrtle Beaches Free Safe and Clean," said the group was picking up trash along the beach and in access areas in an effort to "show the city what kind of good neighbors we are." Parking rates of $2 per hour or $10 per day will go into effect on March 1 for non-residents visiting the beach accesses along the area of the strand known as the Golden Mile.
