Wade Hampton Boulevard Survey
Wade Hampton Boulevard is an important gateway into downtown Greenville, and over the past five years, the City has made significant efforts to beautify Wade Hampton Boulevard and create a healthy environment for area residents, students and businesses. The City’s most recent investment in the corridor included new medians, new streetlights and nearly 300 new street trees.
The City is now surveying residents in the Wade Hampton Boulevard area to gather
input on how they use Wade Hampton Boulevard and what businesses they patronize,
as well as what uses they would like to see along the section of Wade Hampton
Boulevard from the city limits at North Pleasantburg Drive to Stone Avenue. The
survey will remain online until May 15, and City staff will incorporate survey
participants’ input into a revitalization strategy for Wade Hampton Boulevard
later this year.
