I want
in Spartanburg.
Jane Loyless

I'm very pleased to see Nextdoor Downtown come online today - congrats to whoever started it! See the image above of how much of Spartanburg's downtown area is covered by it. Good job, and good luck with your launch!

I hope to see more neighborhoods come online soon!

Could neighbors sharing Wi-Fi be enough? Interesting idea:

"I don't make houseguests sign in before "consuming" my water, electricity or heat. If neighbors need to borrow something—a cup of sugar, perhaps, or my lawnmower—they are welcome, no signature required. Why not bandwidth? My monthly cost for high-speed Internet is probably less than the value I receive as a homeowner by having happy neighbors who keep well-tended homes and look out for one another.

Perhaps my simple act of sharing will improve life in the neighborhood, if just a little."

Why is the skate park not open to bikes? Could switch days(even days skateboards -odd days other). Or, have a few days a month that it is open to something other than skateboards. Why limited to skaters?

The Spartanburg Trails and Greenways plan being spearheaded by Partners for Active Living includes some great proposed new trails along the creek that may connect the Cottonwood Trail to the Drayton Mill redevelopment area. This may happen!!

Yes please. Put a dirt track / bike skills area next to the skate park as well as a playground. So close to the YMCA, the rail trail, South Converse, Duncan Park, Converse Heights, etc. this will be a great gathering spot for families.
