We need MORE MORE MORE of this. Updating apartments and homes closer to uptown to bring back young professionals, families, and students.

I am glad to see these apartments getting a facelift, and aiming for better people staying there.

The Georgetown Commons people seem to be very meticulous with whatever they are doing with Ham's. I wonder if they are going to reuse the bricks or some other LEED type thing.


Glad to see the "police" out in full force here.....

ECU is updating their building signage. It used to be those grey and black signs. Now they have updated the font and added purple and gold to them.

I really hope ECU is getting over this shyness of using purple on things. We need MORE purple around campus.

Guess I see things as the polar opposite as you, Greenville and ECU seems too purple for my taste. I officially came up with the conclusion Greenville was too purple once I saw a purple Firetruck.

Perhaps the brick will be incorporated in the sidewalk around the new complex.

Maybe I have just missed this sign before....New development at Chapman road and S. Memorial. drive. "College Point" retail pads.

"Exciting new retail project. There are 2 retail pads, shop spaces, and an opportunity for a small box. The site will have outstanding visibility and accessibility and is located adjacent to a newly planned Farm Fresh anchored shopping center. There will be 1,000 - 15,000 sf of retail space available along with retail pads ranging from 21,780 sf to 130,000 sf.

An area of tremendous growth with the expansion of Pitt Community College, leading healthcare services, and many new housing starts. Home Depot, Sam's Club, and Lowe's Home Improvement are all in the immediate trade area with more retail planned. Greenville is considered the hub of Eastern, NC and it boasts social, economic, cultural, healthcare, and educational resources to serve all of Eastern, NC."

That sign has been there forever. That deal may have fallen through. Although Lincoln Harris still has the PDF, they don't list that project in their portfolio. The fact that they list The Home Depot as a nearby business should tell you how old it is. The Farm Fresh shopping center was never built either.

Airport Authority approves budget

Commercial air traffic in and out of Greenville will continue and increase revenues for the city in the coming year, the Pitt-Greenville Airport Authority director said this week before the board unanimously approved its $ 2.95 million 2013-14 budget proposal.

The airport is required by state statutes to operate a balanced budget with expenditures equaling revenues, airport executive director and finance manager Jerry Vickers told the eight-member board and City Council liaison Max Joyner Jr. at their meeting on Wednesday.

The proposed budget amounts to about a 7.7 increase in revenues and expenses over the current year’s budget, Vickers said. Fuel and oil sales and purchases at the airport accounted for the highest projected revenues (about $1.66 million) and expenses (about $1.1 million), according to the amended budget report.

“We bought more fuel than we predicted; prices fluctuated over the year and are now about five percent higher than what we were paying at the beginning of the year,” Vickers said.

Salaries will amount to $973,275 for the coming fiscal year, Vickers said. Overall personnel costs will rise 2.8 percent, including an 8 percent hike in health and dental costs beginning in January. A merit pay increase of 1.1 percent also is planned for staff in the next fiscal year, Vickers said.

Capital reserve funds amount to about $1.2 million, most of which is aimed at upcoming capital projects, Vickers said. Passenger facility charges, at an average charge of $4.50 for every passenger that boards at the airport, contributed $273,579 to the capital reserve during the fiscal year to meet the local match for capital projects.

“Commercial airline service will continue in the year ahead,” Vickers said. “Most of our revenues, about 60 percent, are tied to fuel, rent and advertising.

Total fuel sales, an important revenue factor for the airport, were down 12 percent year-over-year from 2012-13, primarily due to a 29.5 percent decrease in purchases by U.S. Airways, Vickers said. Costs for the primary fuels dispensed at the airport will continue to rise up to 11 percent in the year ahead, he said.

“U.S. Air has been making most of its purchases in Charlotte and other places connected to a pipeline, then they come in here and take as little fuel as possible,” Vickers said.

Year-to-date fuel income is up 7 percent, however, amounting to $99,392 additional revenue, he said.

Current airport capital projects that are making use of federal and matching state grant funds include the ongoing airport runway extension project being engineered by Talbert and Bright, Inc.

Arrangements are continuing with 26 property owners for ongoing voluntary land acquisitions around the area of the planned runway extension, Vickers said. Negotiations are in varying stages between owners and the airport, based on individual owner preferences and financial conditions.

At least five of the owners have completed and closed their deals with the airport, and three owners told authority officials they are not interested in participating in acquisition talks at this time, Vickers said.

Land surveying has begun for the runway project, and some modifications also have to be made to reroute the utilities infrastructure on the perimeter of the extension project, including along Old N.C. 33, he said.

Other ongoing capital projects include a deicing runway and additional hangars with dedicated road extensions leading to them, he said.


After approval of the budget, a board election returned Donald Taylor to the chair for another four-year term, with John Banks as vice-chair. Julie Carlson will return for another term as secretary/treasurer and Vickers was elected to another term as finance officer. Jim Morris also was named as a new board appointee.
