The City of Spartanburg's most recent podcast featured City Manager Chris Story explaining why downtown streetscaping isn't just an avenue to enhance the downtown visitor's experience but to also increase opportunities for private investment.
Six years ago, Spartanburg City Council passed a plan to further develop strategic streets in Downtown Spartanburg, which aimed to improve the pedestrian experience. The plan has included widening sidewalk to enhance Spartanburg's development and future growth.
Today, the downtown streetscaping has resulted in progressive improvements that are demonstrated by the Children's Museum of the Upstate, 142 Social, the Aug Smith building renovation, Fr8yard, the Peddler, Farmer's Table, and Miyako's/Bar 1884, to name a few.
Overall, Story said the city is proud to see and share what Spartanburg has become -- a success the community both benefits from and enjoys.
