The Greenville City Council tonight will consider the first request under its new Capital Investment Grant program, designed to provide economic incentives for businesses and projects to start or grow in the city.

Also during the meeting at 7 p.m. at City Hall, council members will vote on a resolution to adopt the city’s 2013-14 budget.


The capital investment grant request from Taft-Ward ECU Campus Edge Apartments, LLC, would support the mixed-use commercial “Georgetown Redevelopment Project” in the block bounded by Reade Circle to the north, Evans Street to the west, Eighth Street to the south, and Cotanche Street to the east.
