The Friday Fax Weekly Memo


Posted Friday, October 21, 2016


A printable .pdf of the Friday Fax is available.


1.   Next week’s meeting schedule and agendas are attached.   


2.   The Myrtle Beach Mini-Marathon is this weekend, with race events both Saturday and Sunday morning.  The Coastal 5K begins at 7:30 a.m., Saturday, October 22, at The Market Common.  See for a map of the 5K course.  The 13.1 mile Mini-Marathon begins at 7:00 a.m., Sunday, October 23, at Coastal Grand Mall and ends on the boardwalk at Plyler Park.  For a Mini-Marathon course map,, which includes times when intersections will be closed.  Remember that US 17 (what we call “the bypass”) is not part of the race.  Please plan ahead to get to your destination on Sunday morning. 


3.   Construction resumes Monday, October 24, for the third and final phase of the Ocean Boulevard streetscape project, between Second and Ninth Avenues North.  The intersection of Eighth Avenue North and Ocean Boulevard will be closed for installation of crosswalk materials.  Detours will be posted and are expected to last approximately three week.  Project work this fall and winter will include removing overhead utility lines and poles and installing final sidewalk, landscaping, lighting and street pavement.  We will have converted 60 blocks of Ocean Boulevard to underground utilities when these seven blocks are finished next spring. 


4.   Quilts of Valor will honor Myrtle Beach Police Department personnel who served in the armed forces during a time of conflict with a quilt presentation at 1:00 p.m., Monday, October 24, at the Ted C. Collins Law Enforcement Center.  The program will include the department’s Honor Guard and a short history of the Quilts of Valor.  More than 146,000 handmade quilts have been presented to veterans nationally as part of the program.  The presentation is open to the public. 


5.   Volunteers are needed to help plant trees next weekend at US 501 and Third Avenue South.  The city acquired the property last year, tore down the dilapidated building that was there, and plans to make an attractive entryway park in its place.  The tree planting is thanks to a $6,000 grant from TD Bank.  


6.   Debris pick-up continues following Hurricane Matthew.  The city’s debris contractor is collecting storm-related debris placed at curbside in residential areas.  Please put debris at the edge of the road, but not covering any utility boxes or meters.  If you don’t want to wait for pick up (or if you live on a private street or in a gated neighborhood), you may take tree debris to the drop-off site at the former Phillips Seafood location, corner of US 17 and 21st Avenue North Extension.  See for more information.  The site entrance is on 21st Avenue North.  For this one event, please DO NOT BAG leaves or other tree-related debris.  The drop-off site does not accept bagged debris, nor any construction debris.  Residential landscape contractors should put storm debris on the curb at the house where it was generated.  Commercial property landscape contractors must take storm debris to the Horry County Landfill on Highway 90. 


7.   Registration continues for this year’s Mayor’s Cup Amateur Golf Championship, to be played at all three in-city courses!  The first day’s competition will occur at Whispering Pines Golf Course, followed by day two at Pine Lakes International Country Club and day three at Grande Dunes.  Male and female players, age 18 and up, will vie for the championship titles, November 18-20, in these 54-hole tournaments.  The application form is available at  City residency is not required.  The entry fee is $249 and includes course fees, lunch each day, range balls and a tee gift.  (Practice rounds at any of the three courses are extra.)  Entry forms also are available at all three courses and must be received by 5:00 p.m., Friday, November 4.  Call 843-918-2305. 


8.   Women’s college lacrosse teams were in town last weekend for a tournament hosted by Coastal Carolina University, and that’s the subject of our Photos of the Week.  In all, 10 college teams played at Doug Shaw Memorial Stadium and Ashley Booth Field both Saturday and Sunday.  The women even offered free clinics for younger players. 


9.   Did you know…  That Myrtle Beach will celebrate its 20th annual Tree City USA award during Arbor Day ceremonies later this year?  The Tree City USA designation is sponsored by the National Arbor Day Foundation, in cooperation with the National Association of State Foresters and the US Forest Service.
