Have you ever wondered how things get built in Greenville? Would you like to understand the role of the planning commission and city council in Greenville’s planning processes? Do you want to know how and why we should plan for future development that is 5, 10, or 15 years away?
Upstate Forever’s Citizens Planning Academy is an interactive course designed to help Greenville residents, business owners, and neighborhood leaders become more effective and influential participants in City of Greenville planning and land use policy efforts. Participants learn about a variety of planning and development topics, such as the history of planning, how development projects come together, and how to get involved in planning processes for your community.
Upstate Forever’s Citizens Planning Academy is being hosted virtually this fall with six one-hour sessions from noon to 1:00 pm on consecutive Wednesdays. The interactive lunch-and-learn virtual format is designed to continue helping Greenville residents, business owners, and neighborhood leaders become more effective and influential participants in local planning and land use policy efforts, even during the COVID-19 pandemic.
