Uptown Greenville has a list of projects of ongoing projects/planned construction projects on its website...

https://uptowngreenville.com/experie...vest/projects/

Of interest is the $8 million for the Hotel. Later it lists $17 million. Not sure if that is the same hotel project or separate, but $8 million seems high for land/due diligence, but low for a full hotel.

It also appears that the Taft/Ward project and SuperBlock project need to be moved to the Completed section. Would be nice if they updated this list.

Does anyone have recent photos of the ongoing projects? If so, I know I along with other out-of-towners would appreciate a look at things.

Does the City have a corridor plan for the 10th St? Certainly with ECU, neighborhoods around it, mixed use, etc...it would be very beneficial when redevelopment is on the table. And it could receive public input in advance.

No corridor plan is currently in place (or contemplated, for that matter) for 10th Street. Agreed that it (along with Evans) need a plan in place--there's several potential activity nodes along each (Clifton-Arlington-Evans, 10th-5th-Greensprings) ripe for development/redevelopment.

RE: Limebike--be on the lookout for more bikes and new additions to the vehicles at ECU come fall semester. Have it on good authority that we were actually the top performing market in the country by some metrics.

Computer error causing flight cancellations at PGV

Quote:
An American Airlines computer issue has forced several flight cancellations at the Pitt-Greenville airport, including departures to and arrivals from the Charlotte-Douglas International Airport.

Executive Director Betty Stansbury confirmed to WITN's Kate Capodanno that the first expected arrival Monday has been delayed to 1:54pm and the first expected departure has been pushed back to 2:23pm.
Interesting stuff. Been an odd year for the airport.

Happening Monday, a group of restaurant owners in Pitt County are meeting for the first time to form an independent restaurant association.

You know how they say there is power in numbers and that's exactly what this group wants to happen.

Local restaurant owners from all around our area say this group can help all their businesses.

One goal is for the group to promote eating and drinking locally.

In 2016, Pitt County had over 231 million dollars in tourism expenditures and that number is expected to increase for 2017.

They hope to be able to join forces as well at city council meetings to fight for changes they want to see with restaurants.

The owners want people to come to Pitt County because of the restaurants and bars.

For long term, they want to have a collective bargaining group for things like health insurance.

"It's tough for restaurants,” said Jeremy Spengermen, owner of Basil’s in Greenville. “I pay $26,000 a year for a family of 4 for insurance, so if we can get a group of 20 restaurants together that average 25 employees or so, you get a 500 person group together, you can do some bargaining on health insurance."

The group hopes to also pass business to one another as well.

For example if one can't fill an order, give a recommendation of a member of the group.

The meeting is set for 2 o'clock Monday afternoon at Dickinson Avenue Public House.
Love this idea. Maybe this will lead to a "Greenville Restaurant Week".
