Restaurant Spotlight: 

D’als Pizza LLC at 17 Mohawk Drive gives the neighborhood another great place to dine.  Call them at (864) 252-4700 or check out the menu and order online.  This second location of the beloved Charleston pizza joint opened last year. Greenville residents John Petrich, who lives in the North Main neighborhood, and his stepson Chad Matheny have partnered with brothers Nick and Ben D’Allesandro to bring their favorite pizza to the Upstate.  Deliberately remaining open an hour after The Community Tap closes to capture those customers, hours are Sunday-Thursday, 11 a.m.-10 p.m., and Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m.-11 p.m. They will also deliver pizza directly to The Tap.

North Main Yard Sale

We have had several inquiries about a fall yard sale at the Northgate Soda Shop.  The date is Saturday, September 28, from 7 am – 1 pm.  Bring your tables, change or whatever you need to set up your area to sell. The space is free.  PLEASE pull in, unload around the perimeter of the back parking lot.  PLEASE PUT YOUR VEHICLE ON THE STREET AFTER YOU UNLOAD to leave room for buyers to browse.  If there are items that you don’t want to take back home, they will be collected on-site and donated to Miracle Hill.


Development Update and Other City News

  • Many are now wondering about the recent closure of the Rite Aid store on E. Stone Ave. According to the Greenville News, the closing of the East Stone Avenue Rite Aid store was in connection to an October 2017 earnings announcement that the company would close some locations to “ensure we have the right stores in the right locations to create a more focused network of stores that can deliver the greatest value for our customers.”  The spokesperson added that Walgreens isn’t leaving the Greenville area. Walgreens currently has nine locations with Greenville addresses.  No word was given on the future of the site.   County property records show ownership of the site has not changed hands since 2004.

Amy Ryberg Doyle said she would love to see the building redeveloped for neighborhood use.  Doyle said no plans have been submitted to the city, but she said she hopes to meet with the building’s owners soon. “I have reached out to the owners to encourage a good neighborhood use (restaurant or mixed use),” Doyle said in an email, “and to inform them of the city’s Facade Improvement Program for Stone Avenue.”

  • As you know, the City of Greenville is embarking on a planning process to develop a new Comprehensive Plan to determine the course of the next 20 years. This process, called Greenville 2040, will enable the community to help shape the vision and make recommendations through ongoing engagement opportunities. When completed, the comprehensive plan will help guide decision-making in Greenville for years to come. Many of you have completed the survey, but if you want to stay informed about the process, just go to this website and sign up to receive updates about meetings and announcements.  The city hopes to adopt the plan in the winter of 2020.
  • Update on Bobby Pearse Community Center: “The Parks and Rec department staff have been working with MHK Architects (who are donating their time and services) to complete bid documents for the repair of the Bobby Pearse Center.  On Monday, August 8th , Parks and Recreation staff and the MHK team met at the center to finalize details needed to complete the documents.  These documents will serve to complete a Request for Quote for the Center. As we noted previously, a June meeting among City staff and community contractor volunteers agreed that without a more specific Request for Proposal to be presented to General Contractors to solicit quotations, an insufficient basis exists to contrast a repair and restoration quotation against other options, including demolition, full replacement, or no demolition, building replacement or something else.  We will keep you apprised as we learn more.”  (Marlie Creasey-Smith, Interim Director of Parks and Recreation)
  • Signage in Public Rightof-Ways: Once again, a resident has asked us to remind folks that the city does have a sign ordinance which was put in place for a number of reasons, including public safety and aesthetics.  It applies to all types of signs, including political signs, signs for yard sales, open houses, etc.  Check out the city’s website to see all of the do’s and don’ts.
  • The City of Greenville is introducing a new monthly parking rate designed to provide an affordable, convenient parking option for hospitality workers and others who work outside of regular business hours, as well as those who visit downtown in the evenings and on weekends to enjoy its many dining and entertainment amenities. The new Night Owl monthly parking rate is currently available for the South Spring Street (316 S Spring St) and Poinsett (25 W McBee Ave) garages; however, additional garages will be added incrementally as installation of the City’s new parking equipment progresses on a garage-by-garage basis.

    Night Owl monthly parking is available for a discounted rate of $36 per month (half of the standard monthly parking rate) and provides access to the customer’s preferred garage from 4 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday through Thursday and from 4 p.m. on Friday to 6 a.m. on Monday. The application for Night Owl monthly parking is available online and applicants must submit their completed application, along with payment, in person at the Parking Services office, located at 516 Rutherford Street.  For more information about parking in downtown Greenville, visit parking.greenvillesc.gov or call 467-4900.
