^ I saw 5 points today, I was going to take a picture of it but my phone was dead.

My favorite part of the article was:
"With the goal to create a community-friendly place along with a comfortable image, the use of the public space will increase property values, which will benefit and revitalize the economy with an easy accessibility where different activities engage at a social place.

Five Points Plaza is expected to significantly enhance Uptown Greenville, improving the economy and providing more social benefits, as well as promoting the community's health, happiness and well-being."


That's some good stuff.

A former employee of Home Depot, said that Pitt Community College has purchased the property and will be moving their home construction to this location. Has anyone else heard anything concerning this? I noticed that all of the orange has been painted white or beige to remove all signs of this being a closed Home Depot location.

That would be a good purchase, I believe. But as of right now, the "former" owners still own it. Maybe PCC is leasing the land/building?

Is their Home construction major large? Or maybe it will be after this.

A large wharehouse style building would be good to simulate modular home building. I hope this rumor is true...it's better than a vacant big-box store!

i talked to the people that opened peppermints yogurt and they said they wanted to open a store in front of the new movie theater but they wanted way to much money for rent .

Hopefully that corridor/Allen Road will explode soon with development. It goes from nice to sketchy to nice.

Currently, we have the South Tar River Greenway (Phase 1). It goes from the Town Commons to the Dog park near Tar River Estates. Asphalted with many benches etc. As the name indicates, it follows the Tar River on the south side.

We also currently have Green Mill Run Greenway. It starts at the Greensprings park, across the street from St. Peters on 5th. It follows along Green Mill Run, across 10th St, through Elm St park and ends at the big parking lot on College Hill.

River Park North is a ~300acre nature park located directly north of the Tar River. It has fishing, boating (small/pedal), camping and walking/biking trails.

In the construction/design stage:

South Tar River Greenway (Phase 2). This will pick up Phase 1 at the Dog park and follow Tar River along until it picks up where Green Mill Run dumps into the Tar. It will then follow Green Mill Run to Greensprings Park. If you've been on 5th St and saw the trees being cleared on the opposite side of Greensprings, this is what is being put in. There will be a boardwalk (more elevated walkway, less beach boardwalk) to traverse the wetlands located out there. Last I saw March 2011 is the complete date. But obviously that is VERY fluid.

The Town Commons is getting redesigned. Part of this will connect River Park North to the existing South Tar River Greenway.

The next one is the Green Mill Run Phase 2 Section 2 & 3. It will extend Green Mill Run from its current endpoint on ECU to Evans Park. I've heard the new Province at East Carolina (the new apartment complex going in at the old Kings Arms) is "helping" with this. Basically Green Mill Run cuts off a chunk of usable land. That land can (basically) only be used for a greenway. So they would follow the creek, up beside Pirates Place all the way to Evans Park. This is currently a second half of 2011/first bit of 2012 project.

Lastly, they are looking at putting a greenway on Parkers Creek. It will go from River Park North to the Greenville Aquatics and Fitness Center. But it is way in the future to set anything in stone.


Greenville is in the process of updating their Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. They are, I believe, still looking for public input. A website was set up, Greenways Inc (http://www.greenways.com/greenvillenc - broken link) for the public to let them know what they want.



Hopefully that helped/put you in the right direction.
very helpful,thank you
