Greenville Drive’s Unity Park contribution to restore Mayberry Park
Greenville Drive owner Craig Brown and wife, Vicki, recently announced a contribution to Greenville’s Unity Park. The gift will help restore and preserve the Mayberry Park, which was built in 1927 for the African-American residents of the Southernside neighborhood.
City: Building affordable housing on city-owned property around Unity Park way to fight rising property values, housing costs
Arguably the city owns some of the most valuable and developable land in Greenville — 25 acres along the edges to a couple of blocks away from the new Unity Park. The city plans to use that land for new affordable housing to counter rising property values and housing costs around the park and in the surrounding neighborhoods near downtown that some say are squeezing lower income and working class residents out.
