The transformation of Greenville’s Westside should open opportunities for residents and businesses.
Greenville Mayor Knox White said the city is ready to expand into this area. A.J. Whittenberg Elementary School is well established and the Kroc Center is finished. The West End is open for business.
Downtown Greenville’s Main Street is filled with construction and development and will soon spill onto side streets and neighborhoods near downtown. The city of Greenville is already working on a master plan for expanding downtown along the river corridor of nearly 180 acres of mainly open space, White said.
The city applied for and received a $1.8 million grant in the spring to support redevelopment of the low- to moderate-income level areas of West Greenville, the Southernside and the West End.
