It’s no secret Greenville is growing, and City leaders are working to create a development code to ensure that growth is sustainable.

The draft development code, which will serve as a set of guidelines for addressing issues for future development, will be shared with the public today, Wednesday, Jan. 25. You’ll be able to review it in detail on the City’s development code webpage.

How can you provide feedback?

There are four opportunities for you to share your thoughts about the new code this week:

  • Conversations with the project team | Wednesday, Jan. 25 and Thursday, Jan. 26 | 8-11 a.m. | Prisma Health Welcome Center at Unity Park, 111 Welborn St.
  • Drop-in office hours | Wednesday, Jan. 25 and Thursday, Jan. 26 | 5-7 p.m. | Greenville Convention Center, 1 Exposition Dr.

What happens next?

Next month, the City’s Planning Commission will review the draft code, hold a public hearing, and make a recommendation to City Council.

When City Council approves the code it will implement GVL2040 (the City’s comprehensive plan for the future), promote “new development in a balanced manner,” and work to protect and preserve the character of Greenville’s neighborhoods.
