Officials in one community are looking for feedback on street plans.

The DOT is hosting an open house information session in Greenville Monday night to discuss the widening of Fire Tower Road and Portertown Road, including the intersections at Charles and Arlington Boulevards.

Anyone interested can drop by between 4-7 p.m. to look at the maps and ask questions.

Interesting plan. I am ok with it. I would like to see something done about Greenville Blvd. while they're at it. It could definitely benefit from less left turns.

The Pitt Street lofts are now available. They look really nice.

Apartment for rent in 632 S. Pitt Street - Greenville, NC










But they're a bit pricey, IMO. I know they are completely renovated, but I wasn't expecting them to be much more than $1,000-$1,200 for a 2 BR. I'm sure someone will be renting them soon!

The lofts look nice, I wonder how energy efficient they are with all the original exposed brick.

I like the Firetower plan. I think might improve the market for the empty land between Walmart and the Movie theater as well.

Has there been renewed discussion for the Evans street/old tar widening?

Only problem I see is motorists turning left in certain places, like Tennyson, cutting through Food Lion to get to Turnbury, so they can just turn left at the Turnbury/Charles light, rather than go around a long block.

Someone posted a link recently to a NCDOT site that discussed the State's plans for Greenville Blvd. The options were do nothing, expand Greenville Blvd from Memorial to Charles to 8 lanes with a center median and then from Charles to 10th would be 6 lanes with a center median or do the whole road as 8 lanes with a center median.

This will obviously be an expensive project and is many years down the road at this point. It's going to be interesting to see the city split in 2 by a 8 lane highway. By then they'll be referring to Greenville as the North Side and the South Side.
