GREENVILLE — Site plans for an expansion at Green Acres were submitted to the Greenville Planning Commission on Thursday.

During a regular scheduled meeting for the Greenville Planning Commission Denis Johnson, architect representing Green Acres, presented site plans in hopes of getting approved for a public hearing next month.

“This is an informal meeting to review site plans,” said Chairman David Ralph.

Green Acres is a retirement living facility located at 1601 Winter Creek Drive in Greenville.

Johnson said he has submitted plans to the city engineer, Doug Hinken, along with Tim Johnson of MainStreet Planning.

He has taken their comments into consideration and has redrawn plans accordingly.

The new expansion is going to include eight new additional units to the existing 12 units. This addition will completely attach two attached 20-unit senior assisted living buildings.

Commissioner Jack Corner had good things to say about the Green Acres facility and what it has to offer to the community.

“I have a lot of good things to say about Green Acres,” Corner said, adding he had a mother who stayed at the facility.

After seeing the site plans for the expansion, the commission voted to move to the next step of the process by approved to hold a public hearing at the next meeting on July 12.

“(Green Acres) welcomes you out to the site,” Johnson said to the commission if they want to take a look around before the public hearing.

“Thank you for coming out tonight,” Ralph said. “We look forward to getting things together for the public hearing.”
