Proud of Greenville?...
Just wait until you see our future.
Greenville has recently become the envy of other communities throughout the world. Top ten lists? We have been on most of them.
TOP TEN FOR... places to retire, Main Street, places for young professionals, cool places, per capita engineers, international foreign per capita manufacturing investment, biking towns, small arts towns, best public park, etc. The list goes on and on.
How did this happen? How did Greenville move from being a forgotten Southern city statistic of the migration to the suburbs to the shining star we have become today?
The 30-year overnight transformation of Greenville County happened for relatively simple reasons. Visionary, often against the grain, leadership with a basic belief that nothing is impossible, and an understanding that community change happens if a community believes in itself. Greenville created a visionary plan to make it happen, and charged its leadership with the freedom and power to make it happen. Our leaders took us from "Milltown" to "Willtown."
Greenville Forward is the primary facilitator, shepherd, and catalyst of Vision 2025, Greenville County's bold and aggressive comprehensive plan for Greenville's next generation. Greenville Forward's mission is to enhance the quality of life for greater Greenville by engaging all citizens in continually updating, promoting, and facilitating a community vision for 2025 and beyond.
Do You Know a Hero?
Nominate a Hero Next Door.
In the worlds of volunteer work and civic leadership, recognition is rarely a motive or result of the hours spent helping individuals or promoting a cause. Volunteers improve the fabric of our community in ways that many rarely consider. For six years, Greenville Forward has recognized people who selflessly devote time and energy to making Greenville County a better place to live through our annual Heroes Next Door award.
The Heroes Next Door are selected by their selflessness, dedication and commitment to their cause, and their impact on the community. The typical Hero is not paid to do the work they do.
