Every week on My Greenville Home, Dan Hamilton offers real estate advice and showcases local businesses for his listeners. Today, Dan spoke with Mayor Richard Danner, Greer’s mayor of 21 years. Following his interview with Mayor Danner, Dan shared an update on the real estate market.
Greer, a charming turn-of-the-century town less than a half hour from Downtown Greenville, just completed their ambitious beautification project. Today, Mayor Danner shared exactly what makes Greer so special, plus he gave us a behind-the-scenes look at the city’s next move.
Back in 1999 when Mayor Danner was first elected, Greer was a small town that, like the other cities surrounding it, was struggling following the collapse of the local textile industry. Mayor Danner, along with his fellow council members, created a plan for the city that kept the downtown at its center and its community first. Mayor Danner always envisioned a positive view for Greer, but had no idea just how big Greer could be.
Greer has just completed an ambitious beautification project, completely transforming the heart of downtown. Most notably, new streetscapes have make it possible for pedestrians and cars to safety share beautiful brick-paver streets. Mayor Danner says the next big move for Greer is more community-driven. The city is looking to improve their Municipal Golf Course as well as create a series of trails connecting the major city amenities with the surrounding community. Downtown event programming has taken center stage again, and Mayor Danner says Greer residents have a lot to look forward to in the next year.
