In general, planning demonstrates good stewardship. Change – good or bad – happens whether we are ready or not. Greenville is located within one of the most rapidly growing areas of the United States and the metro area is the fastest growing area in South Carolina. The previous plan was adopted in 2009 and almost 10 years later, most of that plan has been implemented. It is time to reflect and take stock of the existing conditions and trends facing the community and solicit the community’s ideas and input to create a plan that will guide the long-term preservation, revitalization and growth of our city.
