MB City Council mulls through comprehensive plan

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Leaders in Myrtle Beach hope to sift through the remainder of a comprehensive plan Tuesday that will outline the future of the oceanfront town.

City Myrtle Beach spokesman Mark Kruea said members of the Myrtle Beach City Council will mull through the 10-year update to the town's comprehensive plan during a special workshop scheduled for Tuesday afternoon.

The plan has mapped out strategies for development, tourism, recreation and growth in Myrtle Beach over the next 10 years.

City manager Tom Leath says state law requires the plan to be updated every 10 years. He says the city accomplished about 90 percent of the goals in its 1999 plan.

Officials said a vote on the plan could take place as early as next week.
