Would a dairy queen be too much to ask? I have to go to Tarboro for that too.

Also, I am VERY happy to hear about the bike paths being added.

I can't believe a town the size of Greenville with a large percentage of young people (and young families) and temperate climate has so few bicycle paths. I have to drive to Rocky Mount to have a decent (non-street) bicycle ride with my family.

The new Thai restaurant is somehow affiliated with the old Saeng Thai (same chef?), but I do not remember the specifics. I hope the food is the same as that place had the best Thai food in town (my opinion). There was some kind of dispute over the building at the old location, but I cannot remember if it was rent or HVAC related or other (and it was just rumor).

Morehead City & Swansboro have full menu Dairy Queens. All we have ever had were the scaled down menu restaurants and now we don't even have them. Can't a city the size of Greenville support a real Dairy Queen or do they mostly locate in smaller cities. I also would love to have a Popeye's chicken n' biscuits here.

Why not a Goodberry's? That is good.

Oh, and ECU is putting up a new marque sign on Charles and Greenville to replace the brick one currently there. It was in todays newspaper.

Default Stange to me

I would like any sort of ice cream store that I do not need a small loan to enjoy.
COUGH *DOTS* COUGH *COLDSTONE* COUGH

DQ is good, and some small mom and pop shops would be great. Washington has a mom&pop that I hit when I am there.

I am from a colder environment originally (not NY or Jersey), and in that environment where we could only enjoy ice cream and bike riding for about 5 months out of the year we had plenty of trails and plenty of ice cream "parlors".

Here you can enjoy those same things about 9 months out of the year, maybe 10. And there are not nearly as many. Not a complaint about how things should be, I am just surprised with the temperate climate is all.

The new facility should be operational by 2013."

So it sounds like Greenville is getting a Big VA Clinic.
More info on this.

*It will be a 140,000sqft super clinic and outpatient hospital.

*It will be located on Moye Blvd, on the Tar River side of 5th St, near Jimmy Johns. It will be on ~12acres of land. Go back two parcels of land on each side, then that whole area will house it.

*Construction (as of right now) will begin late 2011.

FYI on Super clinics. This is what I have gathered, someone else may know it better:
There are four veteran hospitals in North Carolina located in Durham, Fayetteville, Salisbury, and Asheville
Then there are Community Based Outpatient Clinics (CBOC), which are like a regular physicians office located in Morehead City, Greenville, Jacksonville, Raleigh, Wilmington, Winston-Salem, Charlotte, two in Hickory and in Franklin.
Then there is a "larger" CBOC that does a few more things like MRI etc. Charlotte and Winston-Salem have these.
Super clinics seems to be right under a hospital. And ours will be a super clinic and outpatient hospital.

Good to see an infux of money from federal sources to come in. I know the Durham hospital has an affiliation with Duke Med, Brody and UNC Dentistry. Hopefully we'll be able to "flex" our medical and dental muscle for the good of the veterans, the east, Greenville and ECU.

Some new info on the 119acre of undeveloped land for Eastside Park located near 10th St/Hwy 33 and Portertown. Greenville Parks put new photos up on facebook. It is going right beside River Hill Drive. Fun stuff for our Eastern Pines-ish neighbors.

Does Greenvile the city have a Facebook page? That seems like it would be a great way to disseminate info about the city.
