City News Podcast: Getting Acquainted with the Northside Initiative

Monday, February 4

Big changes coming?

The Northside Initiative. You've probably read about it lately, but what are the nuts and bolts of this potentially massive redevelopment of one of our city's most impoverished areas? Where did the "green shoots of significant, sustainable community revitalization" talked about by former Spartanburg Mayor William Barnet originate, and what's the way forward from here?


On this week's podcast we sit down with Community Services Director Mitch Kennedy to ask those questions and a few more. So listen, learn, and then let us know what you think by leaving a comment below.
