Notice 1st Street is now two lanes.
There will be a link to River Park North.
Parking on the southwest and southeast corner.
Amphitheater moved
Hopefully a better launch system for boats.
Two new docks for fishing/etc.
A lot less asphalt, more walkways/green

Hopefully that area over that pedestrian bridge gets cleaned up as well.

Cool. Sounds like a good plan to me.

But back on the restaurants, Greenville can't support P.F. Chang's, The Cheesecake Factory, and etc.
However it can support, Red Robin, and maybe just maybe T.G.I. Friday's.

TGI doesn't build as much restaurants as its competitors do so thats why I said maybe.

The people that move into that building have the exact same menu as one of the other Thai places in Greenville (Saeng Thai). I haven't been by Saeng Thai in a while but it was in a terrible location before, down by the DMV and where the movie theater used to be on Memorial. I don't know if they permanently moved or if it's a second location.

They are finally working on the Carolina East Shopping Center. They've had a sign up about re-developing that center for a long time. Saeng Thai may have moved because of the construction work going on.

Oh yes to both. It is not nearly extensive as some cities, they are finally coming around to putting this as something people want.

Currently, we have the South Tar River Greenway (Phase 1). It goes from the Town Commons to the Dog park near Tar River Estates. Asphalted with many benches etc. As the name indicates, it follows the Tar River on the south side.

We also currently have Green Mill Run Greenway. It starts at the Greensprings park, across the street from St. Peters on 5th. It follows along Green Mill Run, across 10th St, through Elm St park and ends at the big parking lot on College Hill.

River Park North is a ~300acre nature park located directly north of the Tar River. It has fishing, boating (small/pedal), camping and walking/biking trails.

In the construction/design stage:

South Tar River Greenway (Phase 2). This will pick up Phase 1 at the Dog park and follow Tar River along until it picks up where Green Mill Run dumps into the Tar. It will then follow Green Mill Run to Greensprings Park. If you've been on 5th St and saw the trees being cleared on the opposite side of Greensprings, this is what is being put in. There will be a boardwalk (more elevated walkway, less beach boardwalk) to traverse the wetlands located out there. Last I saw March 2011 is the complete date. But obviously that is VERY fluid.

The Town Commons is getting redesigned. Part of this will connect River Park North to the existing South Tar River Greenway.

The next one is the Green Mill Run Phase 2 Section 2 & 3. It will extend Green Mill Run from its current endpoint on ECU to Evans Park. I've heard the new Province at East Carolina (the new apartment complex going in at the old Kings Arms) is "helping" with this. Basically Green Mill Run cuts off a chunk of usable land. That land can (basically) only be used for a greenway. So they would follow the creek, up beside Pirates Place all the way to Evans Park. This is currently a second half of 2011/first bit of 2012 project.

Lastly, they are looking at putting a greenway on Parkers Creek. It will go from River Park North to the Greenville Aquatics and Fitness Center. But it is way in the future to set anything in stone.


Greenville is in the process of updating their Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. They are, I believe, still looking for public input. A website was set up, Greenways Inc (http://www.greenways.com/greenvillenc - broken link) for the public to let them know what they want.



Hopefully that helped/put you in the right direction.

Is that the one on Memorial, south of Greenville? I rarely get out that way. Anything "good" coming in?

It's where you get your drivers license and vehicle plates at.

I want a Popeyes. I just have a thing for that Louisiana Kitchen.

Right now we have to drive to Tarboro to get our Red Beans and Rice fix on.
