Has anyone heard of rumors of the city planting palm trees in Greenville along the main roads?

I've seen palm trees in several spots around town and they do well and look so nice and tropical.

It sure would give G'ville a nice coastal look like Wilmington and the South Carolina cities. I sure hope they do it.

I lived in San Diego for years and palm trees never did anything for me. But what did we plant when we put in our pool a few years ago in Greenville? Two palm trees of course.
I have to agree it does add to the tropical feel, and they've done well. I'm glad we had a couple of mild winters for them to get established, before last winter - which was colder than the previous few I believe.

I hadn't heard about the city doing this around town. The convention center does look nice after sprucing up the parking lot a bit, though that was for a specific purpose.

If Greenville would do something with their riverfront I could maybe see palm trees fitting in. You can't just add palm trees and instantly get that tropical atmosphere.

Greenville's riverfront is a huge, completely ignored resource that could easily be a huge benefit and cash cow. It's a shame. No houses, no marinas and no beaches. Tax dollars lost.

The city will be doing a study on how to improve the Town Common. I agree, there is potential to do much more with the river front.

The City's planning and zoning commission approved a rezoning request for property along NC Hwy 33. Speculation is that it is being rezoned for a new Walmart.

I thought it was more than speculation that it's for the new Walmart. I just hope it's a nice one (some of the new Walmarts are quite nice IMO - at least initally).

Anyone know what's going in the old Rite Aid at the intersection of Evans St. and Greenville Blvd.? They were doing some painting yesterday and working on the signs this morning.

I hadn't noticed anything happening at the old Rite Aid...


My favorite burger place in Greenville Fuddrucker's has closed (http://www.reflector.com/features/burger-chain-shutters-923288.html - broken link). I don't think it ever did all that well.
