GREENVILLE, NC (WNCT)- Greenville City Officials will continue to hear from community members Thursday night on how and where the city will grow in the future.
First adopted in 1992, Horizons 2026 develops a vision and blueprint for enhancing the urban character, economic vibrancy, and environmental stewardship in Greenville by identifying needed public services, desired physical development, and economic development opportunities to meet the needs of current and future generations.
Thursday night’s meeting held from 6-8pm at the Willis Building at 300 East 1st Street, Greenville, across from Town Common will offer an open house to view planning results from previous workshops.
Jamie Greene, a contributor to the Horizons 2026 plan, says”We’re in the middle of this process to create a new comprehensive plan for Greenville. So the last two days we really focused on the fundamental question of how we should grow those are choices the community can make.”
As an alternative to attending the evening meetings, property owners within three specific areas listed below are encouraged to attend stakeholder meetings for their specific areas on Thursday, November 5:
Airport Area: 9:00 AM-10:30 AM;
S. Memorial Dr. and W. Arlington Blvd. Area: 10:30 am-12:00 pm;
