I live in the Powdersville area, just outside of Greenville. A small community that is growing quite rapidly. It is not a part of Greenville County it is in Anderson County. We have a wonderful School district (Anderson 1) and are centrally located to just about everything. Great location!! However, This area does not have much of a voice in the Anderson County Council even though this area has wealth, it apparently provides something Anderson County needs, but the needs of this area are not really all that important to them. If you live in this area I am curious to know if there are any changes and improvements you would like to see here? Do you think that Powdersville lacks vision or wonder if it even has one? Is there anything about Powdersville that sets it apart from other communities and areas in and around Greenville, any reason why anyone from other parts of the upstate would even be drawn here? When you drive onto hwy153 from 85 is there anything remotely attractive about it? Anything that stands out to you? Do you believe that there is potential for the current businesses on hwy153 in this community to develop and attract other businesses that will improve this areas overall appearance or help in some way to make this area more attractive and appealing, in an effort to stimulate and create more revenue? Do you think if this were possible that it could improve and benefit the area overall for those that live here and many who live in the surrounding communities? I would love your feedback regarding this. Especially if you live here or in a nearby community.
Look forward to hearing your thoughts,

Default Powdersville

I work in Powdersville so I am there everyday. I know as far as business goes there is supposed to be a Walgreens and a Bloom grocery store coming. There have been some surveyors in the area in the past few months. I would love to see more restaurants--not fast food. Most people I know love the area because of the convenience and the school district. Also, there is also a rural feel--especially down Highway 81. If they are going to build any more homes I would like to see some more affordable with at least 1/2 to 3/4 acre lots.

Maybe Powdersville will get on the map soon. I read in the Powdersville Post today that if you live there you can start using Powdersville on your mailing address. If you have a 29611, 29642 or 29673 zip code but are in in the Powdersville area (still not distnctly defined) then you can use it. The example they gave was if you address is 222 Circle Rd, Easley 29642 then you can use 222 Circle Rd. Powdersville SC 29642.

I agree with you completely. Wouldn't it be nice to drive down 153 and not see the billboards? Have a few upscale restaurants. Reface some of the older buildings on the corner of 81 and 153. This area is such a great place to live because of the schools and the convenience to downtown....I would think that Anderson County Council would want to "spruce" it up.
My vision would be to see wider roads, bike lanes. A safer way for kids in nieghborhoods to ride their bikes to school. The new high school is is scheduled to open in 2011. Have some safe roads for the kids to walk home, walk over to eat, walk over to the coffee shops.

When you say new high school, you mean completely new or a new campus for an existing high school?

Brand new. It will be located near the elementary and middle schools on Hood Road. This will greatly alleviate the area currently only served by Wren High School.

Rumor has it that the land on Hwy. 153 closer to the 123 end that the hospital bought years ago may be getting ready to develop--now that they have teamed up with Greenville Hospital System. I am hoping that will encourage some more business activity on Hwy. 153.

It's not a rumor. I live in Powdersville and my mom works for GHS. It's going to be an outpatient center. Construction should start soon.
