connections for sustainability
In the spring of 2011, the City began a federally funded project in order to develop a unified and comprehensive plan for Greenville's west side, which is home to 3 of the City's Special Emphasis Neighborhoods, entitled Connections for Sustainability: Linking Greenville's Neighborhoods to Jobs and Open Space.
West side planning integrates on-going efforts with future plans for affordable housing, transportation options, economic development opportunities, and open space in the community. Education and outreach ensured that city residents and community leaders were familiar with the best practices for creating a sustainable community and were kept informed throughout the planning and implementation processes.

- 2014 City Park Master Plan
- Expanded Market Analysis Report
- Greenville Park Master Plan
- Housing Strategy
- Transit Feasibility Study
Community involvement encouraged input and guaranteed that all planning efforts represent the community’s vision for the future. Engaging the public in every step of the planning process helped increase support for the implementation of the community vision. A Livability Educator worked with school-aged children and public school teachers to develop a Livability Curriculum, complete with fun do-it-yourself lessons that can be implemented at home or at school. These lessons, coloring books, and other educational materials put students of all ages in touch with the nature in their own backyards.
neighborhood vibrancy taskforce
Composed of representatives from the City of Greenville, United Way of Greenville County and CommunityWorks, as well as neighborhood and community leaders, the Neighborhood Vibrancy Taskforce (NVT) developed improvement strategies to preserve and enhance the dynamic diversity of Greenville's historic neighborhoods.
The NVT met between May 2014 and February 2015 to discuss the elements of a vibrant neighborhood. The resulting recommendations include actions residents, stakeholders, service providers, and government can take to ensure neighborhood vibrancy.
