The City of Greenville will conduct a Swamp Rabbit Trail Extension Master Plan - Post Design Presentation Tuesday, December 17 from 5:30 to 7:30PM at the University Center Auditorium, 225 South Pleasantburg Drive in Greenville.  

The event will feature a formal presentation by the consultant team about the concepts created during last week’s charrette. Following the presentation, attendees will have an opportunity to review the design pin-ups for more detail on the concepts. 

The City has hired Stantec’s Urban Places to develop a master plan for the area located along the planned 4.5-mile extension of the Swamp Rabbit Trail. The objectives of the Swamp Rabbit Trail Extension Master Plan are to develop policy and land use recommendations, conceptual plans for key redevelopment opportunities along the trail and creative strategies to encourage redevelopment of private property and connectivity with the multi-use trail extension. 

The study area for the master plan includes private property and public right-of-way located within approximately ¼ mile on either side of the trail’s proposed route along Laurens Road from Cleveland Park to CU-ICAR. The design and construction of the trail extension itself is a separate project managed by Greenville County. 

The public can follow the progress of the plan on the project webpage
