City/County isn't contributing anything. It is a good thing for us. Period.

Yeah, well, i'm just not sure I want to see solar farms popping up all over the place. Yes it is good for the environment but I just am hoping they don't get a little carried away with putting them everywhere all in the name of "clean energy". I do think it's good for the county and I am not bashing clean energy, but I just hope they think carefully about deciding where they allow them to build these solar farms.

If private industry builds them then what is wrong with solar panels?

I don't understand all the hate on green energy when enterprise builds it. People keep bitching about windmills too. Personally I think they look kind of cool.

That's why the county passed new zoning laws for it.

I don't mind green energy at all, what I don't like about it is when they build big solar farms right near a neighborhood or something. I mean, if your going to build it then build it in a very remote area. I did not get to read about the zoning part due to the fact that I don't subscribe to the reflector. But I think its a good thing for Pitt county. I mean, one day we will need to depend on renewable energy and this being local, should bring some of the utilities down now or in the future.

By the way, I think the windmills do look pretty awesome too.

Either the Courtside Cafe is being renovated or some guy named Chef Stephen is taking over the place to cook us some amazing food.

The former Circuit City has been vacant for over four years now. That's quite a long time for an anchor store to remain empty in what is essentially Greenville's most popular shopping center. Would a Pep Boys be a good fit in that building. Research on the quick tells me PB super stores are 20,000 sq. ft. I don't know the footage of the CC that was there, but, in general, CC's ranged between 15K to 45K in footage. I'm assuming Greenville's CC was a mid-range store, certainly not full-scale. As far as if that location were to be a PB, perhaps the side of the building that faces the overflow parking lot could be where they could install a half-dozen car service bays, as the two-bay setup in the rear of the building that CC used for car audio wouldn't suffice. Pep Boys is definitely the kind of establishment that afford the lease on an anchor store that faces Greenville's busiest road.

I wonder what the vacant rate of retail is in Greenville, but anyways at this point I believe Greenville or better yet the developer should basically accept any tenant in that spot. If Pep Boys showed interest, drop the rates of the lease and allow them to move in and begin conducting business. If I remember correctly, people in car clubs always meet outside of that former CC anyways therefore that would be perfect for Pep Boys.
