If they aren't against vehicular traffic downtown then what's the point of projects like the Evans Street Gateway? Funneling traffic down so people have to wait longer at lights isn't very lending to more people visiting. Also, Uptown Greenville wants to ram a plan through to cut Reade down to two lanes. Now this useless project to install orange matchsticks all over the place.

The end goal, whether intended or not, will be less outside traffic entering downtown. Marion Blackburn and her buddy Calvin Mercer (but especially Marion) hate the evil dirty polluting car and would rather we walk everywhere anyway. Problem is, this is Greenville and no one is going to do that.

Remember when they bricked up Evans? How'd that work out for downtown?

You know what would be super cool? If Greenville had an Uptown (would remain in current location), a Midtown (Mall/Arlington Village area), and a Downtown (Bell's Fork/Arlington & Firetower area).

There is no difference. "Uptown Greenville" is the marketing name that a group of business owners use to promote the area.

Welcome to Uptown Greenville

Ahhh, now I understand. It's one of those new age positivity spins that don't really mean anything. Along the same lines as...I'm not a trash man, HOW DARE YOU , I'm a waste management specialist!

Got it, thanks for the info!

When I said "Uptown Greenville" in my post (about Reade Circle) I was referring to the actual organization.

In reference to the area itself... I don't know anyone that calls it "uptown."

Recently on ch. 9 news a new reporter called it downtown, but quickly corrected it to uptown. Hoffman gave a look until the correction was made, then said, "That's right." It made me laugh because it was ridiculous.

It seems like it's uptown for the fests and revitalization, but downtown for shootings and suspicious umbrella carriers.

That is ridiculous. The area isn't big enough to have two names. This isn't NYC, we don't need to name the boroughs

Downtown Greenville will not be Uptown Greenville until those two horrible dress shops and that radio station are driven out of downtown...they are such eye sores and draw the worst people into downtown...get rid of them and you are on your way...
