|Growing a better Greenwood
Recognizing that its aging commercial core has become more a pen for herds of cars than a neighborhood gathering place, the Greenwood community is hatching plans to make the area more people friendly. The hope is to create landscaping, perhaps a central plaza and a pedestrian walkway that would link major business tenants and attract small shops as well as innovative housing.
|Making way for the people
Setting buildings back from the existing right-of-way makes room for landscaping, porches, stoops and entry stairs to create a residential and pedestrian focus.
