MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - Myrtle Beach City Council has delayed a vote on a new elevated crosswalk along Ocean Boulevard.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reports (https://bit.ly/1s8duv1new ) that the vote was postponed at the request of a developer who plans a new 23-story hotel.

The council gave first reading approval to an ordinance allowing the crosswalk in October. Since then, opposition to the idea has surfaced.

The developer says the elevated crosswalk connecting the hotel with a water park and garage will make it safer for guests, opponents say elevated crosswalks are ugly and if a new one is approved, others will follow.

There is one other elevated crosswalk on Ocean Boulevard. The city staff has been working on guidelines that would regulate the building of any new ones.
