Warning: Information you find on this page may be outdated or incorrect.

GVL2040’s third open house will be held on Wednesday, February 12, from 6 pm to 7:30 pm at the David Hellams Community Center, 111 Spartanburg Street.

The session will focus on how Greenville might change between 2020 and 2040.

Participants at this drop-in style meeting will explore Greenville’s emerging growth priorities by considering three possible futures, with the goal of developing a preferred growth scenario for the city.

A comprehensive plan is a long-term guide for the future physical development of a city that considers the input of citizens, businesses and other stakeholders. It includes recommendations for future land use, community facilities, connectivity, open space and recreation areas, cultural and natural resources and economic development. It includes a vision (an aspirational statement about the future condition of the city); goals (desired outcomes for each of the plan topics that are expressed simply) and actions to achieve the goals.

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.
