GRANITE QUARRY — In conjunction with their Sept. 15 community input meeting at Town Hall, planners with Arnett Muldrow did several other things before heading back to their offices in Greenville, S.C.

They met up with local revitalization team members to take a trolley tour of Granite Quarry and have a buffet lunch courtesy of Slice of Heaven Pizza & Wings. They also visited the new industrial park road constructed off Heilig Road and the proposed site for the Village of Granite subdivision off Faith Road.

ZIP-code surveys were handed out to 41 businesses in Granite Quarry for help in the market-analysis portion of the revitalization study. The Arnett Mulldrow planners also held several roundtable discussions Sept. 15 and 16 before debriefing the revitalization team on where things stood.

Of the 41 surveys handed out to the businesses, 40 have been returned, according to Planning and Zoning Administrator Susan Closner. The next phase of the revitalization study will be a charrette — a design workshop Oct. 20-22, which will involve property owners and residents and include some “streetscape” drawings.

The Granite Quary Board of Aldermen will meet at 7 p.m. Monday at Town Hall for its regularly monthly meeting.

Items on the agenda include an easement from Faith for a sewer outfall line in the area of Village of Granite, a resolution for Red Ribbon Week, a look at travel reimbursement and purchasing policies and a resolution to amend procedures in daily bank deposits.
