Join us on July 20th at 6 pm to protect farms, forests, and rural areas

July 16th, 2021

On Tuesday, July 20 County Council will cast votes regarding two critically important issues that will shape the future of Greenville County and impact the lives of all Greenville residents:

We need YOU to join us in Council Chambers (301 University Ridge) on Tuesday at 6:00 pm to show your support for these two very important issues. See the meeting agenda HERE for details.

To demonstrate how many residents feel strongly about these issues, citizens groups will be distributing signs for both. Please pick them up as you enter council chambers to show your support! We need to fill the room to show Council members that Greenville residents care deeply about responsible growth and the protection of historic and natural resources.

Finally, in the days leading up to Tuesday's meeting, use YOUR voice to support Greenville's remaining forests, farmlands, and rural areas by doing one or all of the following:

  • Mark your calendar for July 20th at 6 pm and invite at least one friend or neighbor to join you in attending this very important Council meeting.
  • Contact council and tell them to: (1) strengthen the 3.1 replacement ordinance by reinstating county staff's recommendations and (2) support funding for the HNRT. (To send a group email to these members, click here.)
  • Share this blog post with your Greenville County friends and neighbors who want to see meaningful protection in place for our remaining forests, farmlands, and rural areas.

If you need a crash course on the Article 3.1 replacement effort, click here for background information and how we would like to see the proposed replacement ordinance strengthened.
