Myrtle Beach Downtown Redevelopment Corporation to discuss possibility of historic district

Grand Strand

The City of Myrtle Beach Downtown Redevelopment Corporation will meet today and discuss taking steps toward getting a building on the National Register of Historic Places.

According to the DRC, historic districts are something The City has wanted for quite some time. In today’s meeting, officials will talk about a proactive plan to do research on what exactly it would require to get a building on the registry. 

Buildings on the registry are eligible for state and federal tax credits, which could help rehabilitate the space. 

The building the DRC wants to get on the registry will be a Coastal Carolina University performing arts center if CCU approves plans by Friday.
