Greenville Gets $45,000 Grant to Develop Downtown

GREENVILLE, MS (Ben Caxton) — Greenville is one of four cities nationwide that will be getting some help to revitalize its downtown. The Citizens’ Institute on Rural Design, a project of the National Endowment for the Arts, has awarded the city $45,000 in grant money. The money will be used for visits and workshops hosted by experts on fixing rural main streets. One of the main problems community leaders want to address are the many dilapidated buildings, along with “walkability, security, lighting, and city ordinances.” A meeting has been scheduled for October to discuss the issues faced with the public.
