Downtown progress, community development news highlight the past year in our city


As we head into the holidays and many of us prepare to enjoy family, friends, and fellowship, what better time to take a look back at 2018 in Spartanburg? It's a year that saw the completion of the largest historic renovation in Downtown Spartanburg's history, cap-stoning yet another year of unprecedented growth in our city center. It's a year that saw leadership changes for City Government, with two new City Council members and a new City Manager. It's a year when the City's commitment to equity and fairness received a vocal boost, with the groundbreaking of a new Dr. T.K. Gregg Community Center, the launch of a new master planning process for the Highland neighborhood, and the City's decision to join the Government Alliance on Race and Equity. 


This week on the podcast, we're taking a look back at all of that and a lot more of what 2018 brought to Spartanburg and offering a peek at some of what the next year will hold for us. Listen below for more!
