Posted on: October 4th, 2012 by Kate Humphrey

The Greenville Downtown Revitalization Project brought new life to the once dormant downtown of Greenville, KY. The massive revitalization effort has included constructing new sidewalks, replacing deteriorated sidewalks, new lighting, restoring building facades, removing overhead utility lines, landscaping, and nature park development. Programmed events bring even more visitors into the area. These improvements, while enhancing the quality of life for area residents, have also spurred economic development and increased tax revenue through the opening of 14 new businesses in the downtown area, many in previously vacant buildings. Pennyrile Area Development District staff assisted the City of Greenville with grant application development, administrative services, financial structuring, and procurement activities.
