Research should be done to identify the latest upcoming technology/fields that will have growth in the future.
it will take time, but at least Greenville is marketing itself as a future business expansion/creation target.
Cloud Computing jobs are the future, how about Greenville attempt to be a one of a kind city and attempt to attract those jobs. The city investing in various technologies such as Solar Bins downtown, or even increased wi-fi presence across the city could go a long way in attracting companies simply because companies like existing infrastructure in place. I've said time and time again on here that Greenville should focus on the Tobacco District more and attempt to make that into a "yuppie" area of the city filled with technological jobs, medical research facilities, and etc. I wouldn't mind talking with Mayor Allen Thomas to discuss these ideas and how they could be implemented in a way to better Greenville.

I live in a city named Silver Spring, MD now that has about the population of Greenville but I'd say its urban population is about the size of Raleigh's and Silver Spring has done truly remarkable things to grow to the extent it has. We've closed off certain roads during certain days or hours to encourage pedestrians to walk, we allow people to park in garages free after certain hours, while our stores are mostly chain, we have many stores that attract people downtown, and etc.

If you are referring to Silver Spring in Montgomery Cty, it is almost impossible to compare the two localities. Greenville will likely never have the resources that Silver Spring does or the employment base or the density or numerous other qualities. The same would be true for any other small city in the US, unless it was part of a very large metro area. Real estate in Silver Spring might actually be more expensive than anywhere in the entire state outside of beachfront property.

The "Yerbabuena" restaurant near the convention center seems to being doing well. I've heard a lot of positive reviews. Hopefully something can stay in that location without closing. It's an excellent spot. I'm not sure why so many restaurants have failed there.

I'm no construction expert, but it appears that construction on the parking deck at the new student complex has begun. Some of y'all may know the design plans. It was at the side opposite from where the hill once was. Evans and Reade.

Pitt-Greenville Airport breaks ground on project to build 10 new - WNCT

I remember posting about private hangers there. I wonder if they are the 10 built over the summer, or if the ones being built now?

Sounds like the demand in ENC is here, and im glad PGV is racing to fill the void.

It looks like Greenville now has the 45degree angle on Google Maps. That is awesome

Did Pitt-Greenville close/decommission one of its runways?



It looks like the former 15/33 is now closed, or whatever it's called. It makes sense. I am sure the money it cost to maintain it, is better spent on keeping the other two fit. I looked around on Google some, but didn't see anything that looked official to me.

Bing has had this for a while, but the maps are a little outdated. Bing Maps - Driving Directions, Traffic and Road Conditions

I was looking at the airport with the 45 degree angle option and noticed this. http://goo.gl/maps/GUxQx
Anybody know what that is?
