Another green light for red light cameras in Greenville

Quote:
Red light cameras in Greenville are one step closer to becoming reality.

State lawmakers have approved the measure that would give $100.00 tickets to people caught on camera running red lights.

The money collected would be given to Pitt County Schools.

The areas that could see cameras are Charles and Fire Tower, Greenville Boulevard and East Arlington, Memorial Drive and West Arlington, Charles and East 14th, and Fire Tower and Arlington.

Final details of the initiative still have to be worked out by Greenville City Council.

Salvation Army off Dickinson Avenue closing for re-development

Quote:
A place helping those who need it most is shutting its doors.
The Salvation Army mission station off Dickinson Avenue is being torn down for re-development.
Monday will be the last day breakfast will be served to those in need. Stephanie McKenzie, volunteer coordinator, said they knew this day would come, but not this soon.
“It gives people a place to meet and kind of like a little community center and they relax. And it’s a safe environment where they can come and eat,” said McKenzie.
The organization will be using a fellowship hall beside the Salvation Army on Dickinson Avenue. McKenzie is unsure when it will open.

East Carolina University athletics signs with Adidas

Quote:
East Carolina University athletics is now with Adidas.
The Pirates parted ways with Nike and July 1 begins the 10-year partnership.
ECU kicked off its top-tier, all-sport partnership with Adidas that ECU hopes will help increase its national brand. The university is adamant that the 10-year, $16.5-million deal will free up money for bigger scholarships to student-athletes.
The purple and gold, as well as the Pirate logo, isn’t going anywhere. Lee Workman, associate athletic director for administration, said that fans can expect to start seeing Adidas merchandise and apparel in the community and online in the next six weeks.

RV Park possibly heading to Greenville on Mumford Road

Quote:
Greenville leaders have big plans for the future. One of them involves bringing more people to the city and having them utilize open land.
At the corner of Pactolus Highway and Mumford Road sits more than 40 acres of land. Greenville’s Recreation and Parks Department want to put that land to use by possibly creating an RV Park.
Community member Brandon Tilley loves that idea. He said, “It would open up possibilities for people to stay when people do have campers.”
From Boy Scouts, to traveling nurses, to ECU Alumni headed to the game, anyone could stay at the park and have a good time.
“It would really give them a way to enjoy nature in an urban setting,” Parks Planner Lamarco Morrison said.
The Recreation and Parks Department says its goal is to get more families enjoying the outdoors, especially on the Tar River. Local business owners say it could give them a boost too.
“A lot of people actually come in my business and say, “Wow, I didn’t even know we could go kayaking on the river.” A lot of people don’t know that there are bald eagles on the Tar River,” explained Knee Deep Adventures owner Kelsey Curtis.
Morrison says everything is still in the works, but the park could be accessible soon.

Demolition of Salvation Army Mission Station postponed temporarily

Quote:
People in Greenville can receive breakfast from the Salvation Army longer than expected, as demolition projects have been postponed.

The Mission Station off Dickinson Avenue was set to be closed Monday and torn down for redevelopment. On Monday morning, employees were told the bulldozers will wait at least one more week, allowing them to organize another place to feed those in need.

“A lot of people are homeless, most of them no fault at their own,” said Kenny Green, who eats breakfast at the Salvation Army. “I believe you know it’s gonna affect them greatly.”

In preparation for the demolition, only food will be served Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
The organization hopes to use a Fellowship Hall beside the Salvation Army Thrift Store on Dickinson Avenue once they must vacate the building.

Many moons ago, there was discussion about a new retail/grocery type build out planned for the corner of Evans and Firetower on the northeast corner (see poorly captured screenshot below). I tried to find the original post, but ran out of time. Does anyone have any update on this, or if it is still planned?

I am thinking this went along with the Publix discussion. If so, I'm assuming it's a no go now that Publix has a spot across from the mall.
