Wow you nailed it John, I agree with everything you said 100%! I grew up in Greenville S.C. and you are right, the slum of a downtown that city used to have has been completely erased with a vibrant and attractive city center. It took around 20 years, but it happened and Greenville really is a good template for COS. You can bet that we live in a neglected city and it will take solid leadership and vision to make it the best it can be. I would be tickled to see the same outcome in Greenville for COS. Here are some of the ideas I would like to see: Bring the SkySox to Downtown! Kill Banning Lewis and the boondoggle that is SDS! Increase support for Trails and Open Space! No more sprawl (did you know the city limits of COS is larger than the City of Los Angeles?)! Make incentives for business to move back to the city center!
