Will New “E” District Change Surfside Beach?

Surfside Beach City Council and Mayor Bob Childs voted to approve the Surfside Beach “E” District this past Tuesday.
The vote was 6 for the new “E” District and 1 against.
Surfside Beach’s Planning And Zoning Commission and residents of the town, however, have issues with this new law.
Commissioners and residents have concerns about the changes made in the second reading of the new law.
Things Surfsidians should know: At the Surfside Beach Town Council Meeting Tuesday (Oct. 9th) the Second Reading of an ordinance outlining the provisions for the new E (Entertainment) District was passed.The first Reading had passed without objection two weeks previously.
Prior to the council vote Mayor Childs asked that the motion to adopt include a number of amendments.
The changes include removing all Stormwater Management and landscaping provisions from the District, creating flooding dangers.
Looking at the amendments, and the ease with which they passed, one can follow the election money, and as a Surfside Beach resident suggested at the PC meeting last night, “the council members are either corrupt or stupid.” I would like to think the latter, but the preponderance of evidence given to me in ‘Exhibit A’ has caused me to wonder.
