It’s hard to believe that summer is almost behind us. We’ve done our best throughout the summer to keep you in the know about things taking place in and around Cherry Grove and North Myrtle Beach. Here is the latest update of what’s happening here at the beach.
Hurricane Dorian passed through our area about 75 miles off the coast on Thursday, September 5th. We were extremely fortunate in that no major damage occurred in our area. Minimal beach erosion was reported and the City of North Myrtle Beach did a great job protecting our beaches and securing our area. The folks living in the Bahamas were not so fortunate and our thoughts are with them as the recovery efforts are underway. If you are in a position to give, we encourage you to click here and read about what is most needed by our island neighbors to the South.
North Myrtle Beach Updates
North Myrtle Beach was recently determined to be the safest city in South Carolina according to Backgroundchecks.org. They used a number of criteria to make this determination including number of violent crimes committed in the area and the number of police officers per resident. You can read more here.
North Myrtle Beach recently became the first city in South Carolina to ban commercial pet sales. Businesses will not be permitted to sell animals within city limits. They can, however, provide space to showcase animals up for adoption. This law will go a long way towards the “adopt don’t shop” mentality and will, hopefully, be a new trend. Other laws were also implemented with the passage of this ordinance including regulations about tethering an animal and requirements for adequate shelter. You can read more here.
Beach Clean Up
For over thirty years, members of the community have come together to help keep our beaches and waterways clean. The team at Boulineau’s encourages you to participate in the annual Beach Sweep Clean Up. We have a group of 25 that will be hitting the beach here in Cherry Grove. This event is sponsored by the S.C. Sea Grant Consortium and the Department of Natural Resources and takes place state-wide on September 21st. You can learn more or sign up to help by clicking here.
New Businesses in and around Cherry Grove
Construction continues on the new Snooky’s on the Ocean. This photo was taken on August 28th. They’ve accomplished quite a bit over the last several weeks. There is no update as to an anticipated open date. We wish them much success with their new, second location.
