I believe the Mayor referred to the Dickinson paving at the recent Council meeting as being funded...I may be wrong, but I thought he said that. Thought Greenville was putting in bond money for the upgrades to the streetscape.

Just to recap on Dickinson...two dilapidated houses were removed on Clark and a few commercial structures on Pitt are boarded up to be torn down to allow the GTAC project to move forward. The new Jefferson's building is being renovated on 9th St, the Greco Restaurant Building is being renovated on Pitt St and the storefront on Dickinson across from Trollingwood is being renovated.

Wonder if we will here more about the Pugh's site project and/or the Parking lot redevelopment soon. Those are the catalysts this area really needs...it needs residential to help support these businesses.

The realignment issue shouldn't affect Dickinson Avenue except for the fact they pass over Dickinson. I believe all the other streets are city maintained. It definitely will take money to do the realignment, but where will that money come from? From page 15 of the Dickinson Avenue Corridor Study (November 2014) "Areas of the street grid in the study area will need to be redesigned in order to improve wayfinding, better integrate the GTAC and create larger development parcels that are more attractive to contemporary residential builders". Page 28 provides a graphic of the new street realignment.

Since GTAC and the new mixed-use development on Reade Circle would be impacted by this realignment and perhaps other announced development, it seems that this work will need to be done soon. It may be too late for this, but, since that section of Tenth Street will be closed until the end of the project, it would have made sense to make an under street walkway connecting the ECU property south of Tenth Street with the Arts District, especially with all the pedestrians getting killed in Greenville in the past few years.

The $1.1 million rehab of the old BOA building on 1st Street (across from Town Common) is ongoing.

Will bring Trillium headquarters and about 120 jobs downtown.

Scheduled completion is October 1.

Trillium is also providing a 750K grant for the All Access Park on the Town Common that was discussed at the April Council mtg.

How on earth does a LME get this kind of expendable money? I mean, the one up in the mountains couldn't even stay afloat.

If that rate continued, Greenville will surpass 100K sometime in 2022.

For some reason (maybe downtown residential), I feel like it may speed up and be at 100K by the next census in 2020.

I'm not surprised. It'll probably hit the 100,000 mark within the next 10 years. Here's the stats on Greenvile from the Census Bureau for anybody interested:
