Greenville residents share input on transportation needs

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – People in Greenville gave their input on transportation needs Wednesday.

The Greenville Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization hosted an open house at Sheppard Memorial Library.

Citizens could voice concerns about existing infrastructure and suggest improvements.

Brenda Diggs lives in Pitt County and says it’s important to take part in the process.

“I think it’s important for the public to know what’s on the drawing board,” explained Brenda Diggs, Pitt County resident. “To also make their voices heard. To let their elected officials know what it is they need and then get out and get involved and work for it.

The planning organization says comments and ideas from the public will be factored into future transportation priorities.
