Horry County planners lean in favor of sports plex growth

Amber Venckus likes what Robert Todoroff has done with the place.
Taking a break from her drills, the Forestbrook Middle School volleyball player said the Myrtle Beach Sports Complex, formerly known as The Plex, is a perfect place for her to hone her volleyball skills.
“Before everything was claustrophobic and now it’s all spread out and separated,” Venckus said. “It’s just a fun experience. You get to practice with people you never really knew before.”
Aynor mom Laura Vanorsdale, whose daughter also plays volleyball, also said there’ve been noticeable changes to The Plex since Robert Todoroff began running things.
Some nights, more than 300 people flock to the sports complex.
“There used to be hardly anybody in here,” Vanorsdale said. “Now, since he’s changed things, it’s packed in here.”
To keep things that way, Todoroff is planning to expand the business to include Easter egg hunts, winter wonderlands and other special events.
But the Horry County Planning Commission must first approve a zoning modification that would allow those uses.
Todoroff has asked county planners to amend the property’s PDD zoning to include special events. Now it’s primarily zoned for sports uses.
At a workshop Thursday, commissioners indicated the zoning changes would likely pass. A final vote is expected at the commission’s next meeting Feb. 3, according to the meeting agenda.
“It seems the planning commission likes your concept,” said Herbert Riley, commission chairman.
