In the same breath as the previous post, has anyone seen wanting to turn that "curve" on 5th St in west Greenville into a traffic circle? Where 5th, Elizabeth and Albemarle all intersect. It would take that natural area and make that the center of it.

It definitely needs something to help the traffic.

So the Little League field at Elm Street Park is getting an upgrade. It includes installation of stadium seating behind home plate, increased spectator capacity, improved backstop with netting, a new press box, storage area, and office space.

Oh, and this is funded by a private donation, so no cost from the city. The current anonymous donation will eventually have the facility named after them. Work should start in August 2011 and complete around March 2012.

Always good to keep our fields in top order to bring tournaments here.

A proposed "barber college" hopefully will be coming on Dickinson Ave, right near 14th St. That big redish house on the river side is the proposed place.

I don't want to offend anyone on here, but our schools are quite terrible! Really, I feel that they are in a sad state. We spend more money per capita than other counties yet our school continue to fail and we redistrict every few years to try to "solve" everything. I remember a few years ago our schools where also the most violent in the state. I'm not blaming anyone in particular (I have many public school teacher friends and I know they work hard). Would love to have a magnet school here as at least another option.

Greene, White, and Clement are getting sprinklers. Tyler Hall will close at some point next year to have the interior upgraded and the exterior upgraded to look like the other buildings on campus.

I am not sure how we are with schools, but this would be a great thing to have. But you're pretty much saying no to heavy commercial development on Dickerson. But this investment could help other development.
It's Dickinson, not Dickerson. Perhaps our councilpersons would take us and this site more seriously if we actually knew the names of the main streets in town. And I'm not picking only on you as I've seen this mistake made by several in this forum.

Incorrect spelling of Dickinson on this forum is a minor detail IMHO. I have seen it spelled Dickerson on printed official city and county maps before. It has also been misspelled in articles by that bastion of journalism known as The Daily Reflector.

I regularly hear natives who pronounce the word Dickerson.

From what I have heard, Chicod School has a very good reputation.
