There's signs of growth for one Eastern Carolina downtown. Kinston says nearly $5.7 million has been spent or committed to its downtown during the past fiscal year that just ended.
The Pride of Kinston's survey shows 18 new jobs have been added thanks to downtown business growth. The $5.7 million dollar figure reflects estimates of property owner expenditures to match facade grants, the cost of renovating or re-fitting buildings, expanding business inventories, as well as new business that have located in the Kinston Enterprise Center.
The Pride of Kinston was established in 1984 to lead downtown revitalization efforts.
