2016-2017 Program Year Accomplishments
Each year, the Community Development Division publishes a Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER), which examines Community Development’s activities compared to the goals and priorities set in its 2016-2017 Annual Action Plan. A draft of the CAPER is currently available at the Community Development office on the 5th floor of City Hall and at the Hughes Main Library in the South Carolina Room.
The CAPER also highlights the division’s accomplishments from the 2016-2017 program year, which include 14 properties acquired, 17 structures demolished, 9 housing units constructed and 21 homes rehabilitated. Additionally, 178 students were served in the afterschool tutorial program, 156 families were assisted with fair housing counseling and 159 new families were assisted in the KEY Homeownership Counseling program. For more information call 467-4570.
Historic Resources Survey
In early May, the City kicked off a 6-month study to update Greenville’s historic resources. Focusing on the West End, Village of West Greenville, Greater Sullivan, Cleveland Park, Nicholtown, North Main, Augusta Road, Sherwood Forest and Parkins Mill Road areas, our consultant, WLA Studio, toured the areas searching for structures built between 1945 and 1975 and those properties that were not a part of previous studies completed in 1983 and 2003.
We also encouraged citizens to participate by submitting information about their own property, properties in their neighborhood or in the city using an interactive map and completing a short form at www.greenvillesc.gov/HistoricResourcesSurvey. City staff will continue to accept suggestions from the interactive map.
Please join representatives of WLA Studio and City staff to hear about the properties and areas identified during the research. The 2017 Historic Resources Survey Final Report will be presented on Tuesday, November 14, at 6 p.m. at the Sears Recreation Center in McPherson Park, 100 E. Park Avenue. Contact Monique Mattison at 467-4574 or email@example.com for more information.
