MEDIA STATEMENT

In response to the decision made by the SC Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) to delay the Beachfront Jurisdictional Line Review proposal, Brad Dean, president and CEO of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce (MBACC), issued the following statement:

“We applaud DHEC for extending the public comment period so landowners have adequate time to research data and gather information on how the newly-drawn lines will impact their properties. Rushing the process could have caused unintended consequences and had significant negative impacts on property values and quality of life. We are happy to see that DHEC, Governor McMaster, and other community leaders understand it is important to get this right and handle it in a way that best benefits our region.”
