The Friday Fax Weekly Memo

   
 

Posted Friday, January 23, 2015


   
 

A printable .pdf of the Friday Fax is available.

 

1.   The week’s meeting schedule and agendas are available

 

2.   The Disaster Recovery Symposium for area businesses is Friday, January 30, from 8:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., at the Sheraton Myrtle Beach Convention Center Hotel.  Speakers include Toby Wolf of Point Pleasant, New Jersey, talking about he kept his business going after Super Storm Sandy struck the Northeast.  Continuity planning, preparing for the unthinkable and disaster-related stress also are topics.  For details and a registration form, visit www.cityofmyrtlebeach.com/disasterrecovery.pdf.  The fee is $25 per person until January 26, then $30.  Registration includes lunch in the ballroom and breaks. 

 

3.   Information about pedestrian safety and traffic management for the Atlantic Beach Memorial Day Bikefest is available at www.cityofmyrtlebeach.com/bikefest.htmlThe site includes a map of the 23-mile traffic loop, designed to keep traffic moving during the peak hours of 10:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m.  The goal is to get this information out in advance of the Bikefest dates so that visitors will be aware of the changes and know what to expect.  Horry County also is offering a new mobile application that will give users real-time information about traffic congestion and the loop. 

 

4.   On a similar subject, be advised that parking of trailers and oversized vehicles is prohibited on the public right-of-way, without police permission, as well as on private property, unless that property is zoned and licensed as a parking lot or vehicle storage area.  Accommodations properties (hotels, etc.) may park guests’ trailers and oversized vehicles in their parking areas, but only for the duration of the guests’ stay, and only if the extra parking doesn’t take spaces away from other guests.  For more about trailer and over-sized vehicle parking, see Section 14-305 of the City Code at https://www.municode.com/library/#!/sc/myrtle_beach/codes/code_of_ordinances.

 

5.   Registration continues for the Military Appreciation Days Parade and a host of activities during the month of May to honor our military men and women and their families.  Visit www.militaryappreciationdays.com for details and registration forms.  Events include an Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans Tribute on May 2, educational exhibits (the Agent Orange Quilt of Tears and a traveling Vietnam Memorial Wall) on May 14-16, the Ocean Boulevard Parade and Family Picnic on May 16, two golf tournaments and a dinner dance!  The Memorial Day Remembrance Ceremony will be held on the Convention Center Plaza on Memorial Day, which is May 25. 

 

6.   Applications for new, two-year parking decals go in the mail next week.  The parking decals allow vehicles to park free at public meters and the Myrtle Beach Convention Center and are tied to where the car “lives.”  If your personal vehicle is registered inside the Myrtle Beach city limits and you’ve paid city property taxes on it, then that vehicle is eligible for a decal.  Parking meter season returns March 1, so you have several weeks to reply and receive your parking decal before meters reappear.  

 

7.   The seventh annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Parade on Monday, January 19, is the subject of our Photos of the Week Myrtle Beach celebrated the birth of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with a host of events and activities during the weekend, including the parade, which started at the baseball stadium and ended at Mr. Joe White Avenue.     

 

8.   Did you know…  That the economic impact from sports tourism in the City of Myrtle Beach totaled $155.7 million in 2014?  The estimate is up approximately $30 million over 2013.  The dollar amount represents direct spending by events at facilities inside the city, including the Grand Park Athletic Complex, the Myrtle Beach Convention Center, Doug Shaw Memorial Stadium and The Ripken Experience, among others.  Cheerleading and dance competitions held at the Convention Center were the biggest economic contributors at $50.1 million, followed closely by baseball tournaments at just under $50 million.  Other top revenue-generating sports for the community included fast-pitch softball ($14.7 million), basketball ($11 million), running events ($10.9 million), slow-pitch softball ($4.4 million), soccer ($4 million) and volleyball ($2.4 million).  Dollar-wise, July was the biggest month with $57.6 million in direct spending, while September was the smallest ($513,000).
