Cott Beverages is expanding its manufacturing site at 1990 Hood Road with a 150,000 square foot building that will add 28 trailer parks and 15 docks.
Part of the expansion will include 1,800 square feet for additional office space to accommodate the transfer of its logistics staff from a warehouse leased in Taylors. That lease is expiring.
Donna Smith was prophetic when asking greater Greer businesses and residents to voice their “fears, concerns and needs” at last Thursday’s Greenville County Citizens Roads Advisory Commission public session at Greer City Hall.
Greer Police Chief Dan Reynolds told about 75 attendees unsafe bridges were a concern when responding to emergencies. Jack Stewart said three shopping centers within one mile of Old Spartanburg Road and the Brushy Creek intersection was as problematic for traffic as the need for sidewalks on Hudson Road near Eastside High School and Brushy Creek Elementary. And Brian Martin said three new subdivisions at Suber, Brushy Creek and Gibbs Shoals roads should demand turn lanes at schools on those roadways.
