Coastal North looks for sign rules to last

sjones@thesunnews.comMarch 7, 2014 

The North Myrtle Beach City Council has called a special meeting for 2 p.m. Monday to consider changes to the sign regulations for Coastal North Town Center.

The changes would clarify the exact sign allowances for each building in the center, which will have 348,000 square feet of retail space and is to bring the Strand its first Publix grocery store.

The changes address the center’s main sign on the road as well as the signs that will go on individual buildings. For instance, the change states that a building’s sign space allotment will be reduced if the store has a sign as part of the roadside sign. It also seeks allowance for businesses in standalone stores to have signs on three of its building’s four exterior walls.

North Myrtle Beach spokesman Pat Dowling said the changes will take any ambiguity out of the regulations regarding signage at the center, and that will mean that the rules put into place now will apply the exact same way 15 years to 20 years down the road.

The meeting will be in council chambers at City Hall.

The shopping center is expected to open in late fall or early winter.
