Letter: Greenville, S.C., developed its river
The writer of the Sept. 28 “Reader Viewpoint” should have stopped in Greenville, S.C., on his way to his unnamed South Carolina town. For you see, instead of forcing its citizens from their homes and destroying a free flowing river, Greenville has developed their river, the Reedy River, into a centerpiece of their downtown. Go to their official website and you will see the river as well as a beautiful suspension bridge prominently featured. The development of the river in their downtown has helped bring life back to their city.
The writer of the Sept. 28 “Reader Viewpoint” tells us we must “re-imagine” ourselves.
Consider with me, instead, a concept that protects and enhances all that makes us unique and offers sustainable economic opportunities. Check out the Mounds Greenway, a proposal by the Hoosier Environmental Council and the Heart of the River Coalition. Wake up Anderson, the thieves are in your house.
