Your Aug. 14 article covering the departure of Ginny Stroud from her position as community development administrator with the city of Greenville stresses her work with the city’s special emphasis neighborhoods. There is certainly much tangible evidence in each of those communities of her skills in assembling financial and technical resources and forging effective partnerships. However, it should not be overlooked that she was equally effective in serving the full cohort of city neighborhoods on a range of planning and development matters. Her professionalism and “institutional memory” for how to get positive things done will be missed.
