You are cordially invited to the second public meeting for the Greenville Village Study.  The meeting will be held September 4, 2014, in the cafeteria at the A. I. DuPont High School on Hillside Road in Greenville.  The meeting will begin at 6:30 PM and end at 8:30 PM.  Please arrive by 6:20 so that the meeting can begin promptly at 6:30. The purpose of this meeting is to continue the dialogue with the public regarding how Greenville should look and function  in the future.  The meeting will include a series of exercises meant to spur discussion and feedback using images of potential design and land use elements.

Greenville is a community on the Brandywine Valley National Scenic Byway.  The Byway consists of Kennett Pike and Montchanin Road between Rodney Square and the Pennsylvania Line.  National Byway designation was approved in 2005 because of the spectacular scenery along the route, the history of the area and its cultural institutions.  But most importantly, the Byway remains a special area due to the efforts of its citizens to protect and preserve the entire Brandywine Valley.  

The Greenville Village Study will lead to a plan that will guide development and redevelopment in a manner that preserves the character of the Brandywine Valley.
