Quote:
GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – A new mural is coming to Greenville and visual and graphic artists are invited to pitch their ideas.

The Pitt County Arts Council at Emerge and NC Brewing Ventures, LLC, invite artists located in eastern North Carolina to create original designs for the 718 Dickinson Avenue Mural Project.

Artists may submit original designs that the chosen artist will paint on the side wall of 718 Dickinson Avenue, Greenville, NC 27858. Scaffolding will be provided. The artist/group must supply their own paint and materials.

One artist, or group, will be chosen and will receive a $3,000 honorarium to complete the mural.

The Pitt County Arts Council will manage the application and review process and will coordinate the selection panel.

NC Brewing Ventures, LLC will manage the payment process and the supervision of the implementation by the artist.

The application deadline is July 23, 2016 at 4:00pm, or postmarked by this date.

My comments have nothing to do with the connector. I was referencing adding any further traffic by rerouting 33 through 10th street. I've long since accepted additional traffic brought by the connector but it creates a straight shot through to the medical district. Four lanes at that. So it brings value. rerouting 33 does none of that.

I doubt many people take 33 through town so it's kind of moot. What would be the point? Unless you live in Tarboro and work at PCS Phosphate or something. Even then you'd be better off taking 264 to Washington.

Older article about the approval of the mixed use student housing on 10th street.

Uptown Greenville | Permit granted for MXU student housing

Slightly interesting tidbit that may have been missed about the Dickinson/Reade St. development.

Quote:
The board also unanimously approved a request from a Baltimore-based development group that is planning to construct a $32 million mixed-use development at the corner of Dickinson Avenue and Reade Circle.

The Sidewalk Development Group asked the board to amend a special-use permit the board approved in January to operate a dormitory development, which is defined as a building or group of buildings that provide group sleeping accommodations with or without meals in one group or a series of closely associated rooms under joint occupancy.

The development group requested the amendment to allow additional units at the mixed-use development, which will include a market rate apartment complex, a student housing project and 20,000 square feet of retail, restaurant and office space.

The original plans for the development called for a 40-unit market rate apartment complex and a 90-unit student housing project. The development group now is planning to add an additional 20 market rate units. The development will accommodate about 400 residents after it is constructed.

Construction of the Sidewalk Development project is scheduled to begin sometime in the fall.

Additional market-rate apartments are a good sign for the demand. Very good news!

So CSX is building their Intermodal terminal in Edgecombe County.

Greenville has a connection to this via the North-South CSX line. I wonder if CSX/NCDOT will extend this line to Kinston/GTP, to create a third connection.

I would hope so. But even if the line was extended from the GTP to connect to the line that goes through Greenville, it's full potential won't be met until the railroad gets (hopefully) extended from Parmele to the existing railroad in Kelford, which goes to the Port of Virginia in Norfolk, giving the GTP rail access to one of the biggest ports on the East Coast. There's a lot of potential in eastern NC. It's just a matter of being able to capitalize on it.
