*very concerned about

*very concerned about everything mentioned in this article. many of these projects have and will be a huge burden on the taxpayer not just this year but for years to come. *the new walmart is of great concern to the neighborhoods who will have to live with increased traffic, noise and crime. *so many of these decisions were made against many of the citizens' wishes.

lets tell the whole story

Dicks comes to town and two family sports businesses close The SEED program has not really done anything productive The Development Advisory Committee has sent $90,000 to Tenn. for a useless study on how to grow business in town, absolutely asinine move with a major university sitting right here. The Walmart issue was Greenville leadership at its worse. There certainly is uneasimess in 2013- our city leaders are clueless
