This time 4 years ago, I was telling you about how we need a Downtown Master Plan. You voted for me. And we worked on it. This is the year we’re getting it done!
On May 14, 2019, we voted to approve a contract for MKSK Studios to be the consultant on the Simpsonville Downtown Master Plan project. Our approval was based on a recommendation by a steering committee that interviewed and scored multiple firms.
A public meeting was held by firm MKSK and the City of Simpsonville on July 30, 2019 at 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Exchange Co., or 110 S. Main St. The purpose of the meeting was to invite input from the public about the issues and opportunities facing downtown Simpsonville. Topics discussed included pedestrian and bike connectivity, traffic on Main Street, revitalization and incentivizing businesses to move downtown. For a complete list of the topics discussed, download the Excel spreadsheet here titled Community Input from July 30th Public Meeting.
Promises made, promises kept. Let’s keep Simpsonville on the right track!
