In the fall of 2011, the City of Greenville as part of the Connections for Sustainability project was able to work with Graduate students in the City and Regional Planning program at Clemson University to engage Southernside residents in creating the 2011 Southernside Neighborhood Vision Plan (PDF). The students studied existing conditions of the area; held a community feedback session; and utilized both the assessment and the public input to design a vision and conceptual plan for the neighborhood. The plan was revised based on resident and Council comments and was completed in October 2013.
The 2010 Sterling Neighborhood Master Plan (PDF) has gained approval by the Sterling Neighborhood Association and has been approved and adopted as part of the City's Comprehensive Plan by the Planning Commission and the City Council. The City, Greenville County Redevelopment Authority (GCRA) and Bon Secours St. Francis Health System worked in partnership with Arnett Muldrow Associates to develop the plan.
The Master Plan represents 1 year of work with residents from the Sterling neighborhood, alumni of Sterling High School, businesses, churches, educational institutions, residential developers and other concerned citizens.
A key component of the master plan are design guidelines (PDF) that will assist the development community and property owners with new construction and substantial rehabilitation of property in the neighborhood.
The neighborhood encompasses 71 acres, less than half a mile from downtown. First Baptist Church adopted the Viola Street neighborhood as one of their ministries in the late 1980s. Partnership with the Urban League of the Upstate and the Community Development division of the City soon followed in the early 1990s. After careful planning and assembly of over 16 private, government, and nonprofit agencies, total revitalization efforts began in early 1993. Most of Phase I was completed in the middle of 2002 and Phase II was completed in early 2009. Read through the 2002/2009 Viola Master Plan (PDF).
The 2002 West Greenville Master Plan (PDF) implementation is segmented into 4 phases offering 366 residential units. The plan recommends offering a mix of housing types to serve residents of all income levels.

The consultant team of Wood and Partners, Incorporated and Davis and Floyd Engineers
The West Washington Street study area is approximately 294 acres located on the northwest side of downtown Greenville, South Carolina. The team found the West Washington Street area to have great potential and called for properly designed and placed public improvements, the removal of industrial land uses and dilapidated nonresidential and residential structures, and the recovery of the Reedy River flood plain as open space in order to revitalize the area. The 2005 West Washington Street Master Plan (PDF) was completed in October 2005.
The Seamon Whiteside consulting team presented the final draft of the City Park Plan for public review and comment on Sept. 17, 2013. Community input, together with input from City Council and City Staff, and the availability of future funding opportunities, will help guide the potential future implementation of this plan going forward. This meeting provided an opportunity for people to ask questions about specific amenities and costs, as well as share thoughts about the design.
