I actually like this idea. $10,000 seems like a lot of money for some "passport type card' but regardless, nice to see someone is thinking about tourism.

I applaud Garris for standing by his convictions, even though I disagree with them. Fun coincidence, I used to get moonshine from a Garris in Pitt county in my younger days... Probably not related


I like the idea and it speaks to the continued effort to promote and develop the county.

GO Science will remain on it's month-to-month lease agreement with the city until it merges with another Pitt County learning center.

Also, bidding is still going on for the old Harper Brush plant on Memorial Drive.

Dickinson Ave is gearing up for a street renovation project.

Quote:
Also during Tuesday’s meeting, the Redevelopment Commission unanimously approved a request from the N.C. Department of Transportation for a temporary construction easement at the GO-Science property to accommodate construction of a road improvement project on Dickinson Avenue. NCDOT will reimburse the city $3,950 for the easement.
Wisemiller said the road improvement project would cover a two-mile section of Dickinson Avenue between Reade Circle to Memorial Boulevard. The project will include repairing drainage along the corridor and resurfacing the road. Construction is expected to begin in 2018, he said.

“They are timing this to begin soon after work on the 10th Street Connector is complete,” Wisemiller said.
Wisemiller said the city also will be investing between $1 million to $1.5 million in improvements on Dickinson Avenue between Reade Circle and 14th Street. Planned improvements include sidewalks, crosswalks and decorative streetscapes, he said.

“There also could possibly be a pocket park constructed as well,” Wisemiller said. “But this project still is in the design phase right now.”

They are now demolishing the house that borderline the property.

Glad to hear this project has found a way. This corridor needs it.

That's a lot of land across the street from K&W. Can't wait to see what's coming up at the corner.

JCPenney has not released an official list of store closings, but based on store sales the Greenville Mall location is on the bubble.

JCPenney just spent a lot of money on updating that store, shame to see they might close...but their leadership in general has been subpar over the years. Trying to find an identity has been hard for them. I go in there occasionally but in all honesty, I think their clothing is over priced...but then again, I think it seems to be over priced everywhere these days. $60 for a pair of docker khakis..really?

If they have to shut down the store, the only major retailer out there will be Belk & Dunham Sports. Greenville could really have a nice regional mall, but for whatever reason they have never been able to get over the hup...lack of investment or poor management? I'm unsure. People here and all over Eastern NC would shop there if they had stores that were not only targeting the teens and certain segments of the population.

The mall is really a giant piece of crap. I wish they could bulldoze the entire thing & start over with a more Triangle Towne Center type approach.
