There is a new subdivision under construction at the corner of North Juanita and 2nd Street. There is also a proposed subdivision on Hines Dr.

I was wondering how long it was going to take before Greenville's and Winterville's building booms would start to affect Ayden.

There is also construction occurring at the former Walmart Express.

I just hope Ayden retains its downtown character. Its core of buildings downtown with some streetscaping improvements would make it a really attractive ex-urban community as Greenville grows up.

I understand that Greenville is getting all the student housings. But I think they need to do some development outside the city as well.

And as I see some commercial stuff in there, I would love to see a shopping center like this:

or this:

http://prntscr.com/hbpqi7 (It's under construction, but I will have one from Google Earth)
http://prntscr.com/hbprv0
-Back then about 10 years ago, there was absolutely nothing there.


I don't want to just see one big Walmart in those areas, we need some nice new stores.

We need to start expanding, not just fix the stuff we have in our city.

When I was in G'ville a couple of months ago, I was struck by how much existing retail there was. I'm not at all sure there is much demand for significant amounts of new retail space.

Infill, not expansion, is what's needed in Greenville. Make better use of existing properties and bring it within the municipal limits. If it goes outside the boundaries, the city has less revenues to make improvements. There's a massive cornfield on county land right outside my house, on city land. There's retail on city land just on the other side.

Let's fill in the holes first.

Okay, I kinda figured of what abandoned and building crimes we have. West Greenville, and towards Farmville Blvd.

I've been reading about this and I'm very happy that they are doing this. This would make Greenville a better town to live in.

When you typed that, didn't it seem to be just a random collection of words? Thereby requiring editing and rewriting?
