Hate too tell you with out towns around greenville. Greenville would not be much of anything in the first place. You hate sprawl as things are going now greenville area is not going to be anything but that in 20 years anyways. With all the people moving here this place is just going to be a big happy sprawl mess.

This growth is good for us that live in Simpsonville and the rest of Greenville County.

How is it good? More traffic, pollution, cookie cutter homes, etc? Define the term "urbanism." The only development down there that is getting it done right is Griffin Park.

You didn't mention JOBS, g-man430!

I don't think it is possible to live so close to Atlanta or Charlotte and not expect that growth.

I never said growth wasn't good. It should be done in a responsible manner though. I don't want traffic, pollution, cookie cutter homes, etc. I want mixed use dense urban development with mass transit and homes that don't look the same in every direction I turn. You do like the quality of life here don't you? To keep that, you need developments like Griffin Park.

Not so "golden" anymore is it? If you want to see the Greenville metro area turn into sprawl hell Atlanta then so be it, but I would rather have dense urban development with less traffic and pollution. Something along the lines of San Francisco would be nice.

I'd rather have all the growth in one area instead of ruining, I mean benefiting the whole state.
