There are visitor, patient, and some metered spots around there if you don't mind a short walk.

Default What's going on with Suddenlink???

So what's the problem with Suddenlink and why can't they get it fixed?

Don't tell me to go to WITN.com because their last report says everything is fixed and up and running. It might have been for a couple of days, but then it went back out again. I've been out of email connection for the last two days.

What I've always wondered is why we don't have any "choices" in cable/internet connections here. Isn't that a violation of anti-trust laws (or whatever you call it when one company takes over the area)

I guess they consider DISH and online email programs as the alternatives.

If nothing crazy occurs, sounds like the parking deck will be built at the Moseley Parking Lot, currently 77 spaces (SW of Cotanche/4th). It will be a four-story, 256-space, concrete parking deck. It is thought it can be done with an additional 30k/year in the city budget. The parking deck could be erected and finished within a six-month window. The city wants to align the construction procurement of the parking deck with the construction of 423 Evans Street, to reduce cost of both.

Recall 423 Evans Street will be a four-story office building, with the City’s visitor center on the first floor, and three floors of office space above.

Now for my opinion on the Transport Center.

I like 7. It is closer to everything. It is just one more block from Winslows, so ECU students would feel safe walking to it. It is near the Police station and Greenville Utilities. My only problem is this would pretty much guarantee we would never have rail access.

Site 5 is located right on the railway. As of now it feels like it is in Wilson. But, I do believe we will eventually have the opportunity for train service. Having it at site 7 would remove this. Maybe construction here, with the Bankruptcy building could help spur further development.

Are they trying to incorporate the old bus station into the new one on site 7?

I like the building for site 5. It blends in well with what is already there. I'd feel better about this site if the city had a plan for the Imperial Warehouse area.

There are multiple alternatives to Internet. Believe it or not, dial up is still available. There is also DSL from the phone company.

There are also multiple cable services operating within Pitt County just like there are multiple power companies and not just Greenville Utilities. It's just that none of them compete for the same customers.

That is what it looks like. I would HOPE whatever site is pick, any building would be razed and start from scratch. Only leave trees, if possible.

And I agree on a needed "Tobacco Warehouse district master plan". I would feel A LOT better with Site 5 if there is confirmed redevelopment with this. Building this "outpost" with no additional adjacent construction will lead to a life of neglect.

Here is my recommendation for Greenville's bus stop. Though, I might add another bench or two.

I agree. I like the Site 5 plan. The building looks better. The only problem I have is the way that the parking lot is laid out. In the Site 7 plan, it seems easier to drop someone off and keep going, but the site 5 plan seems to have you loop back into the parking lot to exit. Hopefully they will make this a one way street to keep the flow of traffic rolling along.
