MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - Changes could soon be coming to the Myrtle Beach police annex at The Market Common.

According to permit reports from the city of Myrtle Beach, the city is looking to add a second story to the building, located at 3340 Mustang Street, as well as expand the first story.

The second story addition would bring about 4,880 square feet of additional space. The city is also looking to expand the first floor of the building by 6,524 square feet.

The proposed additions are part of an Air Force base Tax Increment Financing (TIF) project, according to city of Myrtle Beach spokesperson Mark Kruea.

TIF was created so that public infrastructure projects are paid for by taxes from residents and businesses who move there, not from taxes paid by citizens outside the area.

Kruea said the second floor would be used for additional office space and a new firing range for the department. He added the project has yet to be put out to bid.

A final review by the Community Appearance Board is set for Oct. 17.
