Organizers hope new concert series is first of many - Daily Reflector

Quote:
Greenville’s Town Common hosted the first of three concerts Wednesday that organizers hope will catch on as an afterwork, summertime tradition along with the Uptown Umbrella Market.

The Concert on the Common featured live music from The Embers and cold beer from Coastal Beverage and Uptown Brewing Company as well as food trucks starting at 5 p.m. The event was hosted by Inner Banks Media and the Uptown Greenville development agency.

An ordinance approved by the Greenville City Council last year allowed for the event to come to fruition by allowing alcohol sales during events at the park, said Henry Hinton, president of Inner Banks Media.

Bianca Shoneman, president of Uptown Greenville, said she hopes the concert series will be the first of many offerings at the park made possible by ordinance.

The event coincides with the Uptown Umbrella Market, five blocks away at Five Points Plaza. The market also features live music, beer and food in addition to fresh produce, crafts, locally manufactured items and other sales.

Shoneman hopes people who are more attracted to a concert series will be inspired to try the Umbrella Market, and vice versa. She said any event that brings people into the district to enjoy what it has to offer is a plus.

The concerts will be hosted every second Wednesday of the month, with On The Border, an Eagles Tribute Band, playing in June and Band Of Oz playing in July. The Umbrella Market is hosted every Wednesday at 5 p.m.

New projects planned for downtown Farmville - Daily Reflector

Quote:
FARMVILLE — Downtown Farmville is ever evolving. Another development project is underway — this time on the grounds of The GlasStation.

The Farmville Group, a grassroots organization comprised of four businessmen, is working to develop an outdoor amphitheater in the DeVisconti Event and Arts Center gardens.

Home to the monthly agricultural market, the amphitheater will help grow the market and make the gardens a destination, members of the group said.

The plan is to construct a fence along the rear of the property to close off the grounds, and construct a stage with a covered shell for bands and performers, according to Todd Edwards, a member of The Farmville Group.

A large tree stands In the center of the garden. Edwards is working with designers to install specialized lighting in the tree, which will serve as both a focal point and a way to brighten the space.

“This will become an outdoor venue for the performing arts featuring East Carolina University students and private groups,” Edwards told Pitt Community College students on a recent tour of the facility and grounds. “The acoustics out here are perfect, and this will only help Farmville improve and continue this venue.”

Also on tap for the The Farmville Group is renovating the vacant building located next to the DeVisconti Event and Arts Center.

The building first was slated to become a STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics) school. These plans are now being revamped to keep up with the evolving education system and need among employers.

Virtual-reality learning seems to be the future, Edwards said.

To create a virtual-reality learning setting, the Farmville Group now is steering the facility to become an innovation lab. This lab will feature “a mock of industry floors,” Edwards said.

The facility could feature seven different job settings for students to try their hand at, to help them determine their future career, he said.

“They can do trial runs of a bunch of things,” Edwards said.

The group is planning future fundraising efforts to make the innovation lab become a reality

Both runways closed for repair at Pitt-Greenville Airport - WNCT

Quote:
GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) - Both runways at Pitt-Greenville Airport have been shut down for pavement repairs.

American Airlines is aware of the closure, and there will be no outgoing or incoming flights to the airport through Sunday.

No travelers were able to schedule flights at the airport during the five-day period.

The airport usually has a total of eight flights a day, servicing up to 400 passengers each day.

Some of those travelers are flying out of Coastal Carolina and other nearby airports while these repairs are being made.

The main runway was shut down at the end of April for the $10 million dollar repair project and planes were using the second runway to get in and out.

They shut that second runway down Wednesday. It will reopen Monday at 6:30 a.m., while the main one remains closed until May 18.

This is a photo I took yesterday from inside Mendenhall Student Center. Sometimes I look at all the construction around Uptown Greenville and am really amazed that this is actually Greenville, NC. Never thought I'd see the day where we had a parking deck, now they are popping up left and right, never thought I'd see a crane...now they are all over the place.
Amazing where this city is headed, I hope the momentum Mayor Thomas left us with continues on into the future ...
