If you have never heard of Concentrix (I havenít) itís what used to be Convergys. Theyíve been out in the industrial park forever.

Anyone know why the corner lot of Hyde and Arlington is being prepped for development?

Iíve noted in the past, many times in-fact, how Greenville should be a leader in respect to dealing with automation ó hereís another example of why we must adopt such thinking. Call centers are toast (for the most part), itís time to start training people that lose their jobs to do the meaningful work of today. How can we think ahead of automation by not preventing it, but curating it to our local demands?

On another note, I thought this was pretty cool:

Blueprint Intergovernmental Agency

The Tallahassee MSA has a 1 cent sales tax in place up until 2039 to cover $750 million worth of projects in the region. I would welcome an increased sales tax to finance major reinvestment across our region. Rather it be partnering with the State of NC to pump more money into the GTP to lure additional tenants or establishing strengthened, yet beautiful, flood/climate resistant infrastructure to financing a Zoo, creating a Climate Research Zone, updating parks and schools, properly financing GREAT and so much more.

We need to be looking 15 years ahead to mitigate the effects of Concentrix and Wells Fargo like closures that are on the horizon.

I'm not sure if everyone can view this or not but below is a video that was produced by ECU & the city of Greenville. It was shown on Pirates Aboard Day this past weekend when all new incoming freshmen visit campus. Nice little video...

Would also be excited about a tax increase for reinvestment. I can't forsee a Zoo coming here anytime soon. They are huge endeavors. ECU is also actively increasing it's collaboration with Sylvan Heights Bird Park in Scotland Neck. A gem of Eastern NC that doesn't get nearly enough attention.

The problem is that it's in Scotland Neck. I often tell visitors that there is a lot to see and do in Eastern Carolina. The problem is that it's spread out all over God's green acres.

I think where cities/governments fail, and this includes Greenville, is they donít do a good job illustrating the ideas for the community. If we could even have conceptual renderings of a few projects that would be funded by tax increases, I believe more people support increased taxes. If we donít finance a Zoo, which could easily draw in crowds from Raleigh, then we must be thinking of something else thatís a big draw and something that could be a public-private partnership.
