In the future, residents hope to see downtown Greenwood with more crosswalks, where shoppers and residents could cross streets to get to a bookstore, antique shops and restaurants that are unique to their city.
And traffic would be rerouted, while keeping the historic buildings and features that residents love about the downtown.
About 80 residents came to a meeting this week to discuss what they want to be done in downtown Greenwood. City government hosted the meeting so residents could tell the city’s consultant, HWC Engineering, what they cared about preserving in Old Town and what changes are important to them. The company is developing an overall revitalization plan for downtown.
