Ocean Boulevard parking changes

Ocean Boulevard parking changes

Myrtle Beach, SC (WMBF) – Residential sections along North Ocean Boulevard will be under new parking rules as of July 1.

To prevent disorganized on-street parking from 31st to 82nd Avenue North, signage will be posted implementing the changes.

City Council hopes to alleviate overflow parking that typically occurs during the beach-going season due to visitors of the area and non-residents.

Street end parking from 31st Avenue North to 82nd North can be paid at an hourly rate of $4 or $20 per day.

However, if you're without cash, payment is also accepted through the Parkmobile app.

Anyone hoping to enjoy the area between the hours of 9 a.m. to 12 a.m. can expect to pay.

Any parking in the Avenues between Ocean Boulevard and Kings Highway will be limited to vehicles with city decals only.

Property tax must be up-to-date on in-city registered vehicles to recive parking decals, including DMV resgistered golf carts.

Homeowners along the Avenues will receive placcards, this will allow personal vehicels and guests to park on the public right-of-way, but only on that avenue.

Anyone in violation once the new rules are implemented, will be faced with parking fines.
