Not sure how good Rouse Properties is, but anything has to be better than the current management.
I think we all know the two options I'd like to give the mall;

A. Massive Renovation
B. Site Demolished and Rebuilt into lifestyle center.

I refuse to patronize the mall in its current form, the lack of security also makes me feel uncomfortable, seems like there's just teens with wife-beaters on and pants sagging everywhere especially towards the Victoria Secrets section. Although I'm African-American, I don't condone this. The other day I went to a dinner-theater and couldn't help but to love to bring it to Greenvil, but the unfortunate reality is people here would tear it up and turn it into a hop spot. If I ever decided to bring a Dinner Theater to Greenville, my workforce would be authorized to profile potential customers, the dress-attire would be very selective, a very selective hiring process that would prohibit discounts to outsiders and would result in termination if one did, food would be mandatory with the movie, and a police presence would be required at all times.

Greenville is just too wild for the nice things people like myself would like to bring; I would have to build an entirely new 'closed-community' to ever build in Greenville.


In fact, I'd love to build an entirely new community within Pitt County; Greenville has the incomes to support the new community and in-fact, it could compete with Winterville. Seems like I have plenty of time on my hands therefore I may draw up some conceptual plans for a new Pitt County town.

The New Switchyard Opens North of the River (in the county) on Staton Mill Road. Greenville will always have some train activity-- but this eliminates 90% of the worst of the worst (trains literally- parked on the road, moving back & forth detaching train cars) associated with housing a switchyard in the middle of a busy city. Today the new switchyard opens and that activity moves outside of Greenville. CSX officials and NC Secretary of Transportation Tony Tata will be on-site down to commemorate the event. Has taken years and a great deal of work by many, on the city, state and federal level to get this done.

Vidant unveils strategic plan

Improving the quality of life for its patients and community today is Vidant Medical Center’s chosen route toward its goal of becoming a top teaching hospital in the country, according to the its 2013-14 strategic plan unveiled this week.

After opening a pediatric emergency department in 2012 and adding a new wing to its children’s hospital this year, Vidant president Steve Lawler told the board that the hospital now will focus on developing a new system of caring for patients and families dealing with cancer.

Vidant’s patient care strategy aligns it with physician partners to organize around patient needs, Lawler told board members.

“We have a responsibility to make sure that eastern North Carolina has great physicians, nurses and allied health professionals,” Lawler said. ‘We take our role as a teaching facility extremely seriously as one of two hospitals in the state that has responsibility for a state-supported medical school.”

To succeed, Vidant Health System and its partner physicians must keep regional primary health care services accessible to people close to where they live and provide access to specialists who provide services based on the needs of each region, Lawler said.

Vidant Medical Center will focus on delivering care locally and becoming the top tertiary health care destination in the region by investing in leadership and workforce development, improving cost efficiency and building on its new brand, Lawler said.

Internal challenges will include continuing to reduce preventable events of harm to patients, achieving a 99-percent or higher score for optimal care; reducing readmissions and developing population-wide health strategies, he said.

Achieving consistently improved standards of patient care will make Vidant more attractive to payment providers and government funders, Lawler said.

Specific areas for improvement are reduction of device-related infections, skin breakdowns, blood clots, harmful medical errors and an overall improved patient experience, Dr. Paul Shackelford, senior vice president for medical affairs, said.

Vidant ranks 44th among the nations 102 teaching hospitals.

“Nobody dreams of being number 44,” Shackelford said. “Our goal is to be in either the top grouping or second group among our peers.

“We certainly aren’t in the last, but we have a lot of room to improve.”

Vidant’s financial strategy will be to achieve greater efficiency through improved management processes, Lawler said.

“We have to continue to push ourselves to be attractive as a destination hospital to the federal government and others who are paying the bills,” he said. “The only way to do that is to continue to focus on providing consistent high quality care and a great patient experience to leverage our costs position.”

A key to the medical center’s goals will be to work more closely than ever with physician leaders, regional health care partners and public health leaders to create initiatives to improve the general health of the population, Lawler said.

“We’re building the capacity be a kind of air traffic controller for the region, placing patients at the right locations,” he said.

Lawler pointed to Vidant’s focus on developing a new approach to cancer-oriented care as an example of the impact that healthcare providers can have on care in other areas eastern North Carolina.

“It’s not just about a destination here at our Greenville facility; it’s about how we redesign that experience for patients throughout eastern North Carolina,” Lawler said.

According to a sales flyer I picked up at Five Below in Raleigh, the Greenville store will be opening on August 9th. Store is located right beside the Harris Teeter that took over the Kroger in the Target (University Commons) shopping center.

Neat new analysis of Census data in college towns. When you remove college students living off campus, Pitt County's poverty rate decreases 5.5% and Greenville decreases by 10.3%.

Off-campus students skew poverty rates, Census Bureau says | Education | NewsObserver.com

According to the Census, Greenville's original poverty percent was 31.4%, and Pitt's was 24.0%.

The NC average is 16.1%. So that puts Pitt County and Greenville much closer to the average, and paints a better picture.
