Podcast: Discussing streetscaping and parks improvements with City Manager Ed Memmott

Tuesday, November 18

Downtown streetscaping projects to get underway soon


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.


Given that, we thought you’d like to hear directly from City Manager Ed Memmott about those topics. Memmott has been with the City of Spartanburg for nearly 20 years, including the past five as the City’s top administrator. In this, the first of a two-part conversation with Memmott, we focus on city parks and a major downtown streetscaping project that will soon get underway.
