This article focuses on the efforts that transformed a city in South Carolina which was facing extinction. Greenville. South Carolina, has done its darnedest to become part of the "New South." Through decades of planning, and untold numbers of meetings involving community members, business leaders and government officials, the city has clawed its way back from near-extinction to viability. Various groups have created vision plans to improve education, health and business. A celebrated 20-year plan, adopted in 1977, transformed the downtown, with its rows of boarded-up storefronts.
