City to Host Community Meetings for Downtown Master Plan Sept 11 & 13

Representatives from Urban Design Associates, the international urban design and architecture firm hired to develop the City’s Downtown Master Plan, will be in Greenville next week for a week-long design charrette. During that time, the public will have two opportunities to participate in the planning process.

On Tuesday, September 11, the City will host an Open House from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in the Card Room at the Westin Poinsett Hotel. At the Open House, the public will have an opportunity to meet members of the project team and share their ideas for the future of downtown.

On Thursday, September 13, the project team will wrap up the charrette with a public presentation of the draft Downtown Master Plan at 6 p.m. in the Peace Center’s Gunter Theatre. The doors will open at 5:30 p.m. and the presentation will begin promptly at 6 p.m.

The project team has spent the past few months processing and summarizing the extensive feedback they received in June and exploring potential design concepts and ideas. The new plan will provide a deep-dive into the past, present and future of downtown Greenville and will be tempered by market and fiscal realities. The objectives of the plan are to attract and retain businesses, residents, and visitors while ensuring the uniqueness and authenticity of downtown; position downtown for the attraction and retention of a workforce for the new economy and continue the right blend of development and redevelopment. In addition to Urban Design Associates, the project team also includes Hawkins Partners (landscape architecture/public space design), HR&A Advisors (market analysis), Thomas & Hutton (civil engineering) and Walker Parking (parking strategy).

The public can follow the progress of the plan at and submit feedback online at
