Horry County Seeking Public Input

On January 19, 2018 in County News

Conway, South Carolina – Horry County is seeking public input to formulate a plan that will guide future growth and public services decades into the future. This is part of the IMAGINE 2040 Comprehensive Plan that is being developed to ensure unincorporated Horry County grows in a way that is consistent with the desires of the community. The development of Horry County’s comprehensive plan is anticipated to occur over the course of the year. An ad hoc committee of the Horry County Planning Commission has been established to steer the development of the plan. The Committee has begun the visioning process for the future and is seeking initial public input during the months of January and February in the form of a community survey and open houses.

The community survey is available on the Horry County website through mid-February for residents to express the aspects of Horry County that they love and what they desire to see improved into the future. Paper copies can be picked up at the Horry County Planning & Zoning Department in the Horry County Government and Justice Center at 1301 2nd Avenue in Conway. The survey will also be available at upcoming community open houses that will be held in January and February. These public meetings are designed to allow people to drop-in at their convenience to learn about the planning process and to take the survey. Numerous County departments will be available at these meetings to answer questions and to learn about your concerns. These open houses will be held on:

  • Thursday, January 25 from 5 – 6:30 pm at Horry County Government & Justice Center, 1301 2nd Ave, Conway
  • Monday, January 29 from 5 – 6:30 pm at South Strand Recreation Center, 9650 Scipio Lane, Myrtle Beach
  • Wednesday, January 31 from 3 – 4:30 pm at North Strand Recreation Center, 120 Hwy 57, Little River
  • Monday, February 5 from 5 – 6:30 pm at Carolina Forest Recreation Center, 2254 Carolina Forest Blvd, Myrtle Beach

Throughout 2018, residents are encouraged to visit the IMAGINE 2040 webpage to follow the plan’s progress and to get involved in its development.  Residents can also contact Horry County Planning & Zoning at (843) 915-5340 for more information.
