Back in February – before the world seemingly turned upside down – the Greenville City Council adopted their priorities for 2020. The year might be quickly coming to a close right before our eyes, but we thought we’d take a look back at what City Council chose as their early 2020 priorities, before everyone had to shift their focus to deal with the pandemic.
1.) Quality Growth – Planning for balanced development that preserves the distinct character of Greenville.
2.) Environmental Sustainability – Protecting our climate, green space, and natural resources.
3.) Public Safety – Maintaining a safe + secure community.
4.) Affordable Housing – Creating housing opportunities for all people regardless of income.
5.) Customer Focus – Providing outstanding customer service and a welcoming, inclusive environment.
6.) Transportation Infrastructure – Focusing on roadways, sidewalks, trails, and bike lanes.
7.) Public Transit – Supporting a better public transit system.
8.) Public Facilities – Investing in maintenance and enhancement of public buildings.
9.) Economic development – Strengthening our business environment + economy.
10.) Recreation and Events – Providing diverse recreation, arts, and cultural experiences.
