So I just saw where there's an opening for Assistant City Manager on the City Website... Is it just me or will this city have almost all new leadership by the end of the year?

Does anybody here know anything about the inner workings of Greenville Fire Rescue by chance? I have seen some pretty negative things about their administration recently on social media. Not really sure what is going on there.

Does anyone know what the setback rules are downtown? The Gather Uptown setback from Pitt Street seems to be only 3-4 feet. I'm not sure I'd want to live in one of those ground floor apartments. The street traffic would be extremely close and the pedestrian traffic would be just outside the windows. Maybe they aren't planning for a sidewalk along Pitt Street, but that wouldn't seem allowable either. It's very odd.

Does anyone know what is going on with the 3rd street culvert repair? This is what links east 3rd street to Uptown. It's been closed for well over a year and no work has been done. Annoying to see all the progress go on around the area yet the city seems to have forgotten about it.

It's part of the Town Creek culvert project, so my guess is they aren't planning to fix the culvert under Third Street until the project gets that far north.

Greenville, NC : Town Creek Culvert

I assume the culvert project is also holding up the Tenth Street Connector project. However, there must something else holding up the connector project because the section between Memorial and Fourteenth seems to have been at a standstill for some time.

The culvert project was put out to bid. I think only one firm bid and the cost was like twice what the city had budgeted. It's being re-bid in small segments to try to get the overall cost down.

I'm not really sure how that would bring the cost down, but this is what I've been told.

I saw this and they were talking about widening Greenville Blvd to eight lanes from Memorial Dr to Charles Blvd and six lanes from Charles Blvd to US 264. (Or even keep it four lanes)

First Option: Widen to eight lanes from Memorial Dr to Charles Blvd. Widen to six lanes from Charles Blvd to US 264.

Second Option: Widen to six lanes from Memorial Dr to US 264.

Third Option: Retain it four lanes and make improvements.


They were also proposing to make Evans street and Greenville blvd from an intersection to an interchange. (Or keep it an intersection)

And they were also considering to turn the existing intersection: (Greenville Blvd at 14th street) to a quadrant roadway with grade separation.

I like the first and second option. Third option won't help much in my opinion.

And yes, I do think Evans and Greenville blvd need an interchange. During rush hour, The lights are way tooo long and traffic waits to turn left from southbound Greenville blvd south to southbound Evans St.

This is my opinion for the interchange.
