Cherry Grove Dredging Project gets final approval

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - The second reading was held Monday at the North Myrtle Beach City Council meeting for the Cherry Grove dredging project. City Council passed the reading to finalize the Cherry Grove Improvement District.

The city was taking objections from property owners into consideration in order to finalize the plans. According to Pat Dowling, each property owner had until July 1, 2015 to file a written objection to their assessment within the dredging assessment district. 

The city collected 190 written objections. Major concerns included cost to the property owners; A letter will be sent to those who filed an objection letter to show if the city decided to make changes based on the feedback.

The 'Z Canal ' was previously denied by City Council, they decided it was not in best interest to dredge the canal due to risk of accelerated silting and filling of the canal. They also determined that certain parcels along the Z Canal would not receive special benefit.

The first reading was held December 7, click here to view coverage.

Canals in Cherry Grove were created from marshlands and have not been dredged since the 1950's. The canal's would be easy to navigate once the dredging is complete. The dredging project is expected to begin in 2016.
