What is ForGreer?

ForGreer represents an ambitious and transformative initiative spearheaded by the City of Greer, heralding a new era of growth and development for the community. With an astounding $100 million investment earmarked over the next four years, City Administrator Andy Merriman and Mayor Rick Danner have unveiled a comprehensive plan comprising four pivotal projects designed to elevate Greer's infrastructure and amenities. Among these endeavors are the acquisition of land and facilities to erect a modern fire station in the Groce Meadow Road vicinity, alongside the establishment of a state-of-the-art public safety police and fire training facility on Hood Road. Additionally, the plan includes the construction of a substantial 500+ spot parking garage on Depot Street, addressing critical parking needs and facilitating accessibility within the city center. However, the grand piece of the initiative is a groundbreaking $60 million sports and events center, poised to become a regional hub for athletic competitions, cultural events, and community gatherings. Andy Merriman, emphasizing the foresight behind these initiatives, underscores the imperative of anticipating and meeting the evolving needs of Greer's fast-paced growth. Mayor Rick Danner, echoing this sentiment, envisions Greer as the vibrant heart of the Upstate, positioned to seize opportunities and carve a niche as a leader in the emerging economic landscape. His impassioned call for bold, committed, and visionary leadership resonates, affirming the transformative potential of ForGreer in shaping Greer's identity and fostering a vibrant sense of place for generations to come.
