Horry County, SC - HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Plans to create a sand mine in a section of Carolina Forest may have turned to dust, but now residents in the area could soon be seeing a cell phone tower from their backyards.

At a Tuesday evening Horry County Council meeting in Conway, leaders passed a resolution to approve a request for the construction of a cell phone tower along Gardner Lacy Road.

Horry County Planning and Zoning officials say the tower has been proposed for an 830 acre piece of land.
