Creating Community through People, Parks and Programs

Department Highlights On April 5, Ann Cunningham and Red Watson, along with the project team from SGA Architecture, attended the PAC meeting at Greer City Hall to review plans for the Center for the Arts renovation project. The Center for the Arts Construction Project is a Design/Build project, and a Request for Qualifications for General Contractors was advertised on April 15. A mandatory pre-submittal meeting for contractors interested in the Center for the Arts renovation was held on April 12, with 13 different companies attending. This process involves city staff, architects and the general contractor working together to finalize design of the facility and park to ensure we are getting the best product for our money. All RFQs were due on April 27. On April 30, the Project Team reviewed and documented the submitted packets from eligible contractors. On May 2, the Project Team will evaluate and rate the contractors and will select contractors to interview. A Kids Planet Master Plan Subcommittee, comprised of city staff and consultants with Alta Planning + Design, was created that visited with children from 6 local elementary schools and gathered input as to what types of playground elements, structures and facilities they would like to have in a renovated site. A Community Drop-In was held in Greer City Hall on April 17 and the public was invited to come and give feedback as to how a new Kids Planet should be designed. Surveys were distributed throughout the city as well as through links on our website and social media. The deadline to complete all surveys is May 4.

There were twelve property crimes in this area and twelve arrests made. Piedmont Marketplace: Piedmont Marketplace is another shoplifting hot spot with Kohl s and Tractor Supply in the plaza. There were twenty-three calls for service at this location, twenty of those being proactive in nature. A significant arrest was made this month at Tractor Supply. Officers responded to an alarm call and while on scene they observed a vehicle drive from the side of the building with a trailer. A fence was found to be cut, some burglary tools were located where the vehicle was first seen, and the trailer on the vehicle was found to be stolen from another Tractor Supply in Easley.

St., and E. Wade Hampton Blvd. A majority of the offenses were for speeding violations. Most of the traffic enforcement occurred during the peak times for criminal calls for service at Walmart. While we did not see a reduction in shoplifting at Walmart this month, we will continue this project and hope that it begins to reduce the overall calls for service at Walmart. Northgate Manor: In April, officers continued to conduct extra patrols at Northgate Manor. In April, there were only seventeen calls for service at Northgate, fifteen of which were extra patrols. The other two calls for service were an unfounded disturbance call and a warrant service. It seems that our efforts have positively impacted this housing complex and greatly reduced calls for
