North Myrtle Beach Horseshoe to be revamped by May 2015

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - City council approved the renovation of the Horseshoe at the end of Main Street in North Myrtle Beach. The decision came during a workshop session Monday.

Renovations will include the addition of a permanent stage and permanent restrooms, unenclosed showers, flagpoles, redefined parking for cars and golf carts, the addition of low serpentine walls on either side of the area for general definition and casual seating, improved emergency vehicle access to the beach, and landscaping, according to a news release issued by the city.

The Horseshoe is a focal point for city concerts and other events.

Although a starting date for renovations to the Horseshoe has not been identified, work is planned to be completed sometime in May 2015, in time for the start of the primary tourism season, Patrick Dowling, city spokesman said.
