Council votes to approve ECU expansion, create 200 jobs
The Greenville City Council voted 4-1 to create a new zoning district to facilitate a development pursued by East Carolina University on Monday after one council member pressed concerns on the issue.
The council, continuing an online meeting it recessed Thursday to accommodate public input, also acted on several other matters including a jobs creation grant and rezoning requests.
Mayor Pro-tem Rose Glover pressed concerns she initially raised last week about the creation of the mixed-use institutional zoning district through an ordinance requested by the Planning and Development Services Department. She said she was concerned how ECU would use the zoning in west Greenville.
