We are pleased to let you know about a community effort taking shape
called the Greenville Streetscape & Revitalization Project.
Many of us want to make a difference in our community but need help
coordinating our plans with larger efforts. In other words, why repair
the sidewalk when it will be broken up again in 3 years to underground
utilities? Well-maintained streets & sidewalks, attractive
buildings, and green spaces are all important to the economic health of
Very simply, the project is intended to pull together infrastructure
(roads, sidewalks, etc.) and beautification (building facades, green
spaces, etc.) needs and ideas that agencies, local businesses and
members of the community have identified in the last decade (or more)
and present them in a logical & easy to understand way so that
all parties can move ahead together more effectively using
comprehensive maps and business planning information such as:
priorities & timelines, recommended steps, maintenance plans,
cost estimates, financing alternatives, and partner responsibilities.
Thankfully, Plumas Corporation helped us get a small grant to hire a
talented architectural design team to assist us with pulling together
all the information and making sense of it. Read more about
that on the back of this note. The US
are various business owners, representatives of many community
organizations, and agency partners among others.
Come to brainstorming sessions if you have an idea and/or talent to
share, or review material on the internet at the address above and
comment there (the folks at the library can help). Soon, some
information will be posted at the Civic Center and a drop box will be
provided for comments. Helpful feedback (see back of this note)
includes a short description of the problem and a potential solution.
Pictures are always useful.
For the next several months, we will be meeting twice a month on the
second and fourth Mondays from 6:30-8:30 at the Civic Center on Main
We hope you are interested; please join us!
Greenville Streetscape & Revitalization Steering Committee
We are Eleanor and Tony Palmisano, the partners of Integrated
Infrastructures. We have been visiting Indian Valley for the last three
years, providing pro bono (free) services for several community
organizations regarding building restoration and energy efficiency.
During this time we have come to love Greenville and the people that
live here because of the sense of community.
Our firm specializes in community architecture and sustainable
design. We believe partnering with the community brings to
life the vision the community has for itself . We provide the technical
expertise to the project while the Greenville community provides the
soul or spirit. It is this combination of soul and expertise
that creates meaningful projects.
As we began work on the Greenville Streetscape & Revitalization
Plan, it became clear that many community members had done a lot of
hard work with previous planning efforts. They brought their expertise
and planning documents to us so we can avoid duplicating work. This in
turn insures a much more comprehensive plan while further leveraging
Greenville's network of resources with the services we are able to
We understand there will be challenges in the implementation of the
Greenville Streetscape & Revitalization Plan. We also know
Greenville has much to preserve and sustain. Your input is a
critical asset to this work; we look forward to working with you.
