Yeah it should be, my guess is that much more development will come to that area just because of the veteran hospital.

The Daily Reflector

I can't believe these idiots spent nearly $600,000 on signs. For that kind of money might as well just give every visitor a GPS unit to find their way around.

In Greenville private sector news (for once):

Campus Towers downtown has done a lot of work to the exterior of their building. Looking really nice.

I guess I'm the only one who thinks the signage is worth the $...they look great & as an ECU employee, I can't begin to tell you how many people get lost in this town & itch & moan about trying to get in & out of town when they aren't from here. Parents in particular always complain about finding their way around & constantly ask for directions. The city has wasted money on worse things that's for sure. I think they make the city look a little classier & I like how they've broken the city into districts...medical / uptown / convention ... though the convention district sure isn't much, it sounds nice. Here is a link to all the info about the signs:

I'm surprised they don't have a 'University' district' or a 'high crime' district. Anyway - I approve of the signs & the money used.
Maybe we need a high crime district
