City Council passed a Resolution authorizing the City Manager to sign a Mutual Aid Agreement between the City of North Myrtle Beach and the 15th Judicial Circuit Traffic Enforcement Court of South Carolina. Fifteen other law enforcement agencies in Horry and Georgetown Counties are also parties to the Mutual Aid Agreement. The agreement is for the term of two years.

City Council passed first reading of a proposed ordinance to amend the Barefoot Resort Planned Development District (MJPDD-17-02) as it applies to the Tuscan Sands neighborhood. The proposal is to reduce the rear setback from 20 feet to l0 feet in the Tuscan Sands neighborhood of Barefoot Resort to allow for unheated/conditioned patios or porches that meet specific standards. Homeowners have expressed an interest in building porches or patios farther into their rear yards, but space may be limited because of the 20-foot setback requirement. The 20-foot rear setback would remain for heated or air conditioned living space.

City Council passed first reading of an ordinance to amend Chapter 23, Zoning, of the Code of Ordinances of North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina (ZTX-17-06). City staff is proposing a text amendment to the Zoning Ordinance to create a new overlay zoning district that addresses setbacks for the construction of decks and porches within the R-3 zoning district.

Specifically, staff is recommending a "floating" overlay zone— the Small Lot Outdoor Living Overlay. The overlay district would exist in the zoning text only, with no initial application to specific properties at this time. When an applicant requests that the overlay be applied to their property, or if the city proposes its application to specific areas of the city, the request would be processed as a typical rezoning application. The Planning Commission would provide a recommendation to City Council as to whether the district makes sense on a case-by-case basis, applying the criteria in the purpose statement.

Average lot sizes of a surrounding neighborhood would be considered when requests are made for application of the overlay within the R-3 zoning district. Prime candidates for the use of this overlay include neighborhoods with a predominance of lot sizes that are at and/or sometimes below the minimum size for the underlying district.
