WCTI12 reporting that Dave Mirra committed suicide yesterday. He brought a lot of positive notoriety to this town.

They are going to town on the leg over by Memorial. A lot of activity there. You'll see more and more construction as the weather warms.

The Town Common playground area seems to be coming along. I'm looking forward to this. I'd love to take the kids out to the Town Commons, but there is nothing to do out there currently, so this will certainly help.

Town Common playground



The city's $750,000 Trillium Town Common inclusive playground is in the final version of its planning stage, staff told the City Council at its Monday meeting.



The playground is being built using grant funds awarded to the city from Trillium Health Resources and is not using city funds.



The playground will be located in the southeast corner of the Town Common fronting First Street, but will be surrounded by vegetation and a fence for safety. Large existing trees will be preserved, according to plans.



"We're very excited for what this playground will mean to the youngsters of this city and their families," Recreation and Parks Director Gary Fenton told the council Monday.



The playground will be divided in two main play areas, one for children ages 3-5 and the second for children 5-12. The playground will incorporate a river theme, Fenton said. Existing security cameras will monitor the playground and additional cameras are being considered.



"This is far more than we've ever spent on a playground in Greenville," Fenton said of the $750,000 playground price tag. "It's a lot of money for us, but this is our central park, our central playground."



All of the $750,000 comes from Trillium, not the city.



"This will be unlike anything we've seen before," Fenton said.



The playground will include safer, accessible versions of traditional playground equipment such as a teeter totter, Rhapsody musical instruments, a merry-go-round and swings, among many others. Most of the equipment is accessible to children in wheelchairs.



The playground also may include some adult fitness equipment, shaded areas, a water misting area and accessible zip lines.



Current plans are for a ribbon cutting and grand opening in early August 2016.

Board of Trustees
http://www.ecu.edu/cs-admin/bot/uplo...ilities-10.pdf

BOT Meeting Documents have been posted for the February meeting. This is going to be a very important meeting for ECU and Greenville from a development standpoint.

Few highlights:

- ECU will be selling Environmental and Health Safety Building on 210 E 4th St. (corner of 4th and Reade) to Classic Properties, LLC. That company purchased the building next door - I know it's a historic building but the seasoned Greenville veterans will have to update the name. As has previously been known, once that sale is complete those lots will be combined to become the site of the Uptown Hotel/Alumni Center

- ECU will be purchasing the former Phoenix/Hard Times building at 209 5th St and renovating it into "much needed office space"

- The will be Millennial Campus and Dowdy-Ficklen Expansion updates but, alas, there weren't any documents about it included other than it being an agenda item. Hopefully we'll hear more next week.

The William H. Long House (200 E 4th) is, as far as I'm aware, not part of the potential hotel project. I'm led to understand that it was included at one point in time, but as of now the project will just encompass the currently vacant/parking lot on Reade & 4th and the Environmental/Health building lot. The Myron T. Hill law firm still owns the Long House.
