Podcast: City Manager Ed Memmott on the Downtown Airport runway extension, and a new creek for the Northside

Wednesday, November 19

Three transformative projects set to move forward


If you’re a veteran listener of the City Podcast, by now you’ve become familiar with our preferred format: about 15 minutes focused on one topic. So we’re breaking the mold a bit. From an ongoing $2.5 million citywide parks improvement effort to a major capital project at the Downtown Memorial Airport, there is a lot happening in Spartanburg right now. Indeed, now perhaps more than ever, the City of Spartanburg is Always Doing.


Yesterday, on part one of our podcast with City Manager Ed Memmott, we talked about the City's parks improvement plan and a major downtown streetscaping project that will soon get underway Today, we're picking up where that conversation left off, talking about an extension of the runway at the Downtown Memorial Airport, the daylighting of the new Butterfly Branch as part of the Northside Initiative, and one key downtown corner that soon will look a lot different than it does today.
