It looks like NCDOT is using the same interchange design at the tie-in with NC-11 that they used at the eastern end of the Goldsboro Bypass. Good to see progress on the SW Bypass.

Feedback sought for Greenville Parking study.

Feedback requested in Uptown Greenville parking study

Quote:
Finding a parking spot in uptown Greenville right now is challenging, especially during the workday or for an event.

On Tuesday, the comprehensive parking study wants your thoughts on how to improve the parking situation.

Officials at Uptown Greenville hold the parking studies to benefit everyone and create a more enjoyable experience when coming to uptown. The biggest thing the experts behind the study want 9 On Your Side to tell you is to go and give your thoughts on how parking can be improved.

According to Uptown Greenville, one area they are focusing on is the downtown area because of the limited space. The Dickinson Ave. corridor area is also a target because of new businesses and housing plans popping up in the area.

“As we see the conversations around parking intensify, it is important to realize Greenville is a growing city,” said Bianca Shoneman of Uptown Greenville. “Whenever you go to a metropolitan area or an urbanized area, you will experience some parking grief. It’s just part of being in a concentrated area.”

The meeting is happening Tuesday at 3:30 at the Sheppard Memorial Library. So find a spot and give your thoughts.

If you drive through Uptown Greenville, it’s not difficult to see empty storefronts. There are at least six vacant businesses within a two block radius of each other.

Two of which are within the Super Block, which opened up two years ago and was the centerpiece of revitalization in Uptown.

“We always hate to see small businesses close, especially those that were a part of a major redevelopment project,” said Uptown Greenville Director Bianca Shoneman.

She said there will always be some turnover with small businesses. However, despite some closing, Shoneman said there’s a net gain of businesses each year in Uptown.

To improve the area further, Uptown Greenville hired a retail strategist group to identify gaps in the market. Shoneman said they already know several types of businesses that could open in Uptown.

“Pharmacies, women’s retailers, shoe stores, nails, waxing services. I think there’s a place for that in our market,” she said.

In the last few weeks, several announcements have been made about businesses opening. Blackbeard Coffee Roasters is set to open in the Super Block building by August.

“Being an accountant has helped me to know the number side of things to know if it’s feasible, and I think the city of Greenville right now is just booming,” said co-owner Mike Fox.

Despite a business shutting down in the same building within the last year, Fox said he isn’t worried about the same thing happening to his shop.

“It’s a great location,” he said. “It’s eyesight away from campus, and we’re expecting to have a lot of foot traffic.”

Fox said they will roast their own coffee beans in-house, which will help set themselves apart from their competition.

Shoneman said she also hopes the influx of people living in Uptown will help slow the turnover rate. She believes with several complexes being built right now, rent prices will increase, bringing with them higher end businesses that will be more sustainable.

Need more studies to make a decision on the study.

A Sheppard Memorial Library employee said the Five Points lot is being closed too often for events that could be held at the Town Common.
^This! Most of the events at the Five Points Parking Lot have grown too large for that space. They need to find another place for a lot of these events...specifically for the Freeboot Fridays. I have stopped even attempting to attend these due to the congestion and volume. I'm glad it's successful, just not enough space in the darn parking lot.

After the Town Commons plan is fully done, I think it's only a matter of time before Five Points becomes a parking deck at some point.

Why does Greenville have such a hard-on for studies? I get that things change over the years, but some of it seems to be overzealous and repetitive to the point of pissing money away.
