Greenville City Council Goals For Next Two Years

Greenville city council has set a shorter list of goals to focus on for the next two years than what it normally does.

Every two years, members of the Greenville city council meet to discuss the city's main objectives for the upcoming term. But this year council members were faced with the challenge of narrowing their focus from the normal ten goals to six.

Councilmember Marion Blackburn says at the recommendation of their consultant, council was challenged with limiting their focus so that they could devote more time to their project plan.

Economic development, public safety, infrastructure, neighborhoods, parks and open spaces and recreational programs are the areas where council will concentrate its efforts over the next two years.

    I thought the goals were to obfuscate, make back room deals, peddling ignorance, and selling out to the highest bidder. Well Greenville, you voted in these blockheads, including the new and improved mayor. Bet many are wishing they could recall their vote now.

    The agenda 4 have already set the goals for everyone. Calvin and Marion are ships floating without a sail. The mayor.. well he promises a Walmart on every corner. All a laughable mess.

    As long as Kandi Smith still has a seat on this council I will have absolutely no faith in them! That woman is a plague and a disgrace to her city (maybe not to her West Greenville community). You cannot make progress by becoming the problem!

    Here's a thought. Plan for increased public safety, improved infrastructure, nice neighborhoods, nice parks and open spaces, and quality recreational programs and economic development will follow suit. But, what do I know. I do know that government planning for economic development usually seems to fail miserably around here.

    The main goals should be public safety and luring companies to the area .

      The problem with this is that companies are reluctant to move to an area where there is high crime and poor schools. FIX those first then businesses will follow

    Forget the wish list. Without an actual reduction in crime, people will avoid Greenville.

      Bubba, I live in the Outer Banks now, moved from Williamston, went to ECU, and spent 5 1/2 years in Greenville before getting my Master's. If you think Greenville is that bad, then you are crazy. Greenville is nothing compared to places like New York, L.A., Chicago, Detroit, New Orleans, Cleveland, etc. when it comes to crime. Heck, Charlotte, Durham, Rocky Mount, Fayetteville, and Winston-Salem have higher crime rates per capita than Greenville.

    How about prioritizing these goals? One I would think that should be first is public safety/crime? No where does the article list the priorities of the two years. Gotta love our council
