Over the past four decades, downtown Greenville has become a prime example of effective urban planning. But what will downtown be like in the future? The answer will be found in a new downtown strategic plan that is expected to get underway in April.
When a developer proposed building an office building on property on the banks of the Reedy River at the edge of Falls Park, the Carolina Foothills Garden Club pledged to help the city purchase the land. On Monday, that pledge became official as the Greenville City Council approved an agreement with the Garden Club, Upstate Forever and the Community Foundation of Greenville.
