A series of workshops were conducted for the public's input into the 2030 master plan that will be unveiled at the Cannon Centre this evening.

 

The Cannon Centre has served as imagination station for the past 18 months. Tonight it transposes into 'Tomorrowland'.

The Partnership For Tomorrow (PFT) will unveil Greer’s 15-year master plan, 2030, at a public showing 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. at the Cannon Centre. It will be served with the community fanfare of a multimedia presentation, stations depicting in detail future segments of the plan with music, food and beverages.

Presenters were rehearsing and putting the final touches on the program throughout Wednesday and city staff will be transforming the Cannon Centre into an exhibition hall for this evening’s festivities.

The PFT is a representation of government, business and community leaders to steer Greer through growth-related issues. The difference in this 15-year plan versus the first one in 1999 is that design consultants Kimley-Horn and Associates Inc. was commissioned to lead the process.

The public played an active role during the public workshops and planning stages, beginning with more than 600 responses to a survey initiating the process.

Education and workforce, economic vitality, housing and downtown were the four most important areas to the community.

The Greer City Hall and Park complex and municipal building were envisioned in the first community master plan. The Cannon Centre was developed as a byproduct of that plan.
