Myrtle Beach Parking Wars How paying is "paying it forward"

Parking regulations are in effect along the Golden Mile between 31st and 82nd Avenues North. The city instituted paid parking in that area because residents there complained of visitors parking in their yards and disrupting the neighborhood.

Residents who live outside the city limits and tourists pay “$2 per hour or $10 a day to park.”

The advocacy group, Make Myrtle Beaches Free, Clean and Safe, was formed after the parking ordinance went into effect.

Members hope the city will compromise by offering a $100 non-resident parking pass, which will be valid for all residents outside the city limits “and part-time residents.”

As the fate of the parking ordinance idles; Here is a look at where some of that money is going.

“The parking revenues have been used to help fund the streetscape improvements throughout the Boardwalk district....

Which includes funding events and activities....

Maintaining the Boardwalk....

and provide additional parking," said Mark Kruea, a public information officer for the City of Myrtle Beach.
