The commission has approved the third project part of the G.R.O.W Initiative, the program to update storefronts in historic downtown Greenwood. Clown Pediatrics, on Madison Avenue has announced plans for $76,000 façade improvement. The city will allocate $38,000 from the grant program to support the project.
The commission approved a design contract with Rundell Ernstberger to develop plans for the road connecting Surina Way and Market Plaza, and a master plan for signage. Commission members began the consideration process for more than $300,000 in sanitary, storm water and infrastructure improvements that would make land on the east side of the city shovel-ready. The site could be the location of a new retail center.
“We’re full steam ahead with Greenwood’s downtown transformation,” said Mayor Myers. “The RDC plays a critically important role in this process, and I’m very pleased to see their commitment to continuing the momentum we’ve generated thus far.”
The initiative is part of the mayor’s plan to make the downtown area inviting, walkable, and economically viable so that it will draw more business and community involvement to downtown.
