Media statement from Horry County Council Chairman Mark Lazarus regarding the Coastal Conservation League plan to appeal to higher court.
“Are we highly disappointed? Yes. Are we surprised by their continued desire to appeal this project? Absolutely not. The courts have sided with us along this lengthy journey, and we have no doubt that in the end International Drive will be paved. We can’t thank the citizens enough for their loyal and vocal support of this project and the importance it will make in our community. We will continue to fight for the voters of Horry County who overwhelmingly approved this project and which has been approved by every regulator agency in the state and the United States that officially regulates these types of projects. “
