A sports and recreation park for go-karts, ATVs and BMX bikes proposed for the Longs area got the green light Thursday night from the Horry County Planning Commission.

The rezoning request for the 200-acre complex at the former Black Bear Golf Club on Highway 9 now moves to the county council for final consideration.

Planning commissioners gave their unanimous approval despite concerns and objections from the property’s neighbors, who fear the noise will be overwhelming and that the clientele won’t be the family friendly folks promised by the developer.
