On Monday, August 6, from 6:30 – 8pm, at the Sears Shelter in McPherson Park, Susan McLarty, Greenville Homeless Alliance Coordinator, will speak and answer questions about “Gentrification – Why This is a Challenge for the Entire Community? and the efforts in Greenville to address homelessness and affordable housing solutions that enhance the community. Her position was recommended in the Homelessness White Paper drafted by the Greenville Homeless Alliance following the “Tent City” situation that played out in 2014. With the boom here, affordable and lower income housing has been crunched and the less affluent and homeless population has been pushed out of downtown. McLarty aims to work on strategies to make sure people have options that are affordable.
