Greenville and Pitt County need the facilities that will make a quick move possible for new companies.

That was the message delivered to the Pitt County Committee of 100 on Tuesday by Insite Consulting, a firm studying how prepared the community is to recruit new business.


The firm’s final report should be complete in a few weeks, but Rob Cornwell, principal with the company, presented the initial findings during the Committee of 100’s annual meeting.

They are retail buildings not suitable for mfg ...

Not a very intelligent comment

and you know this how??

do not anticipate that you know what is coming, distribution, manufacturing???

Greenville had NO, Econ. Develop Office till New Mayor & Council

I REMEMBER old mayor PAT DUNN== and her FAMOUS QUOTE during the last election== " I DON'T DO ANYTHING WITH ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT. THERE'S NOTHING WE DO TO BRING COMPANIES HERE THAT'S NOT MY JOB.," and the crowd promptly began grumbling and booing. That== lack of VISION or leadership in economic development set the city of Greenville back years. == There WAS NO ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT OFFICE or RESOURCES in GREENVILLE TILL A YEAR AGO, when the NEW MAYOR THOMAS AND THE NEW COUNCIL began their FIRST MEETING in office forming the city's FIRST Econ Dev Office and promptly moved Greenville from passive to a proactive and professional approach to job creation and recruiting. While it doesn't happen overnight they are ALREADY yielding great results. We are FINALLY== on the right track.

we have shell buildings all over town

Circut city, home depot and the list goes on. Not a very intelligent recommendation we just have poor economic managers
