A strategic alliance formed between nine Pitt County organizations plans to finalize an agreement today to hire a consulting firm to study the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats of achieving sustained economic growth in Greenville.

Commonly referred to as “SWOT,” the analysis will cost $22,000, take four months to complete and produce a “powerful document” that will identify the city’s infrastructure gaps and measure its readiness and ability to attract jobs, local leaders said during a specially called roundtable discussion at City Hall this week.


While contract negotiations are pending city approval, nine Pitt County organizations have committed $20,000 to hire InSite, an economic development firm based in Greer, S.C., to lead the study.
