Welcome back to Anderson!
Today’s update has many new photos from the city. The city currently has a population of just over 200,000 residents and a budget of 3,000,000 and growing. Taxes are staying at very low levels as this has helped with the expansions. The current issues remain traffic, police protection, fire protection and education. The areas that have been affected the most remain on Humprey Hill just east of downtown. More city services are being considered for that area.
Some things you will notice:
  • An increase in middle density housing and high density housing in downtown.
  • The beginnings of Interstate 85 just south.
  • Attempts to stop urban sprawl (you be the judge if it is working…. J)
  • Traffic continues to increase even as new roads are built.
Also we will look at one of Anderson’s “sister cities” – Glenn Cove Beach. This up and coming beach resort is growing and has something to offer – vacation time!
Hope you enjoy the update – please post comments and I look forward to seeing you again soon!!

The second picture reminds me of I 25 and HWY 26 between Ashville NC and Columbia SC, right on the state line. These tweo highways snake right next to one another through the corridor. Nice growth. This CJ just may make me break down and buy CXL

Yeah -- I think you ment Interstate 26 and US 25......  But anyway -- Yes that is a wondeful section of Interstate as the highway rolls over the mountains and drops into the piedmont.... on a clear day you can see Greenville and Spartanburg from there!!  Best view is coming east on I-26 right before US 74 splits off towards Charlotte.......  That is a great area!!!

Your city is nice. Every detail I saw in your pictures can be seen in real mid-size cities nowadays. And your planning of road network is very good!
