Transportation Study

 

The Greenville-Pickens Area Transportation Study (GPATS) is currently offering an online survey to evaluate transportation alternatives and priorities in the community. This effort is a part of GPATS' long-range transportation plan, "Horizon 2040."  This study will be used to determine how funds may be allocated to help fund future transportation projects in the surrounding areas.  GPATS is encouraging the community to participate in the online survey and provide feedback on the transportation needs and concerns of the area. There will also be sub-regional meetings held  throughout the upstate in order to receive input on the long-range transportation plan.


Student's asking questions about the swamp Rabbit trail.

Students hear from a City employee on the future expansion of the Swamp Rabbit Trail, which is one of the city's brownfields.

Exploring Brownfields


Students from Carolina High School recently participated in a field trip exploring local brownfields sponsored by the City's Community Development Division.  The students learned what brownfields are and the safety, economic, social and environmental impacts brownfields have on the community.   Representatives from the City's Parks & Grounds and Engineering Divisions spoke to the students about the revitalization of some of the brownfields located in the city and their impacts on the environment and economy.  Additionally, Rosa Byrd from the West Greenville Neighborhood Association discussed the history of Mayberry Park and the past social impact it had on the city.

The students will continue learning about brownfields throughout the month of October and will complete their studies with a field trip and study of Lake Conestee Nature Park.
