Preserving pieces of the past can prove to be a valuable strategy for communities. It enhances the area’s history and gives the community character and a sense of tradition.
So it is good to hear that Greenwood’s mayor is eager to find a way to save the city building once offices are moved into the new city hall a few blocks away.
When the city government offices move out next year, Mayor Mark Myers wants a developer to be ready to renovate the building, which has served as city hall since the 1980s. Offices, upscale condos or apartments, or small shops could be options for how to use the building at Madison Avenue and Broadway Street, he said.
