Sup Dogs Expansion is nearing an end...if only the owners of the Stop Shop would invest, well, anything into their building to make it fit in better with Sup Dogs.

'While Greenville certainly is poised for growth, Cascone saw that there will be a challenge to zone this area with the right proportions of infrastructure, including north of the Tar River, and grow a community that makes sense, rather than putting things anywhere at a given time because you have the land.'

Smart growth is key and to hear a VP of a major company say it speaks volumes. I can only imagine if I were a VP or ranking official in a company, that I’d be more inclined to vote yes on moving an operation to another city based on the city’s master plan as stated by the article.

Both this article alongside the Pharm growth article (specific excerpt below) posted by bikeped both validate what I said a few months ago regarding a metropolitan government or at least bolstering our existing partnership. We must find a way to market ourselves as one as opposed to competing with one another. A regional park authority, delegating what areas will compete for what, marketing ourselves as an authority in the aerospace industry, creating regional a tourism authority, et will go a long way. Frankly, even with the accelerating amount of development in Greenville, I don’t see a path where people from across the East Coast would want to come here or in other words presenting ourselves as a tourist destination in our own right and as a region. There’s an incredible amount of history and culture among other things here and we must capitalize on it as a whole.

Pitt officials have strategized with Wilson and Johnston counties to market some of their assets as a regional package and now have been in talks about expanding the consortium to include Edgecombe and Nash counties, through the Carolina Gateway Partnership, a public-private industrial recruitment agency, Yuhas said. More than 8,000 people work in the industry in Johnson, Wilson, Nash and Pitt counties.

We have to be daring. It frustrates the hell out of me when I talk to an official and they’re bringing up fiscal this or fiscal that. While funding a project is important of course, there’s always funding rather it be public or private but we must demonstrate that we actually want to be a place of daring ideas that will be radically different than any other place a company is looking to relocate. As mentioned in the pharmaceutical article, a VP mentioned that company executives appreciated Charleston’s 30 year masterplan. People and companies alike enjoy participaticing and ultimately investing in places that are forward-thinking. We’ll get there eventually I hope, otherwise we’ll always be content with marginal growth rather than actually taking our area to the next level. But what do I know?

You are right about most of your ideas, but the key is Greenville/Pitt County. Regional development can not be assumed to spread to existing cities that are crime infested, etc...

Greenville has to lead the way, get big enough and clean enough to generate significant industry....of which the Millennial campus at ECU is a huge deal. Then Pitt County actually needs to RESTRICT development and preserve its farmland. If that happened and transportation improves between Greenville and the other cities, then that growth would spread to other cities. Greenville functions as the hub with the other communities the spokes. They act as bedroom communities and focus on what they are good at. And its all promoted regionally.

Kinston has added some significant entertainment options and the GTP. Washington has its historic district and waterfront. Rocky Mount/Tarboro/Wilson has its Interstate proximity. And Greenville has its medical center and ECU and its new focus on economic development.
