w e l c o m e f r o m t h e m ayo r Whether you are a new resident, business or visitor or have lived and worked here for years, the City of Simpsonville and I welcome you. Now is the time to come live, work, and play with us. We have seen tremendous growth in the last few years and expect even more to come. From ongoing economic development, great parks, a walkable downtown to live entertainment, Simpsonville certainly has something for everyone! The most important responsibility that public officials have is serving their community and constituents. Because we at City Hall care about the safety and security of our residents, businesses, and visitors, we have the best law enforcement officers and first responders a city could have. The Simpsonville Fire Department has stations strategically positioned around the entire

community to provide fast and efficient service, and the Simpsonville Police Department works closely with the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office to ensure all residents are safe. Our public safety officers go above and beyond the call of duty. As a small-business owner, I understand the need for a business-friendly climate. Recent economic development in Simpsonville demonstrates the ease with which new businesses can set up shop. Our community is undergoing changes that position Simpsonville as a destination city while keeping that small-town, “stay-a-while” charm. The City of Simpsonville and Simpsonville Area Chamber of Commerce are working together to make sure your experience in Simpsonville exceeds expectations. The Newcomers Guide and Directory is a resource for you to discover all that our community has to offer. We at City Hall and the Chamber are excited about current projects, future opportunities and continued progress in and around Simpsonville — I think you will be, too.

enjoying simpsonville

S

impsonville, South Carolina, is a diverse and growing community that attracts young couples, busy families and active retirees. Unlike similarly sized communities across the U.S., Simpsonville has been able to keep its small-town feel while enjoying enviable growth. Only 20 minutes from downtown Greenville and an hour-and-a-half from Atlanta and Charlotte, Simpsonville is a growing community with award-winning schools, beautiful parks, accessible public services, lively events, and a wide variety of restaurants, retailers, and employers to keep residents engaged and happy. “Simpsonville has it all: an expanding economic landscape, great sources of entertainment and a family-friendly atmosphere,” said Justin Campbell, City of Simpsonville community relations specialist. “From local boutiques to farm-totable restaurants to big-name headlining bands, Simpsonville has the amenities one needs without leaving the city limits.” Through the Simpsonville Area Chamber of Commerce, Simpsonville’s merchants often assist with events and other important initiatives. Local businesses range from large stores like Publix, Target, Belk, and Michaels to smaller local enterprises like Mary’s Lunchbox, the Ice Cream Station, Stella’s Southern Bistro, Danny Smith’s Fillin’ & Fixin’ Station, and Vaughn’s Country Store. One of Simpsonville’s biggest assets is Heritage Park, which boasts a full-size amphitheater, a fun outdoor venue where 16,000 people can enjoy a summer concert. The 2018 season featured Hank Williams Jr., rock bands Evanescence and Paramore, the Charlie Daniels Band, and both Foreigner and White Snake in a joint performance. The venue is also home to family-favorite events like the 10-day Fair at Heritage Park each May, an Easter egg hunt, Movies in the Park, the Independence Day Celebration featuring a professional fireworks display, Halloween at Heritage Park and Christmas at Heritage Park

12

featuring Santa Claus. Heritage Park also has athletic fields, walking trails, two playgrounds, and a miniature replica steam engine train that takes people of all ages around the park. Simpsonville’s City Park is another beacon of entertainment for residents and visitors looking for family-friendly activities. City Park has a smaller amphitheater and stage that serves as the site for free Friday night concerts in the summer, sponsored by the Simpsonville Arts Foundation, Inc. Between 500 and 1,000 people can gather around the stage to enjoy a performance, and the city is pleased the Simpsonville City Park Amphitheater has grown as a destination in recent years. “The City of Simpsonville and Simpsonville Area Chamber of Commerce co-hosted the ‘Support the Arts’ fundraiser at City Park in May, which featured the Jimmy Buffett Tribute Band, and took in about $15,000 for the Simpsonville Arts Center,” Campbell said. “The community really showed its support for local art and Simpsonville.” With $30,000 raised by the 2016 class of Leadership Simpsonville, a sensory playground compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act and featuring inclusive equipment was added to City Park’s play area in 2017. While many people move to Simpsonville to work for one of the community’s large employers, it is worth noting that another sizeable group consists of empty-nesters who move to

Simpsonville to retire and be closer to their families. Although retirees are certainly drawn to the city by family, the area’s many golf courses, active senior centers, and various fun things to do nearby with their grandchildren – like the Discovery Island waterpark – attract them, too. A strong local health care community with three major health systems is also a deciding factor in why retirees move to the area. The Simpsonville community has continued to gain national recognition over the past decade for its diverse attributes. More recently, Simpsonville was rated as one of the 10 Best Places to Live in South Carolina for 2018 by regional “infotainment” website HomeSnacks based on numbers from the U.S. Census and FBI crime data. Career expert website Zippia named Simpsonville one of the Ten Most Successful Cities in South Carolina based on 2016 property values, median household income, and unemployment rate. In 2017, Simpsonville was declared the Safest City in South Carolina by a company that reviews home security systems online. Money Magazine named our city one of the 25 Most Affordable Cities in the United States in 2011, and Family Circle Magazine named Simpsonville one of the Ten Best Towns for Families in South Carolina in 2010. The City of Simpsonville is truly a vibrant, growing, and welcoming place.

award-winning schools & teachers

T

he children of Simpsonville are educated in 12 elementary, middle and high schools that are part of a single district known as Greenville County Schools. “Preparing students for their future pursuits in life, work and education is our responsibility and privilege,” said Superintendent Dr. Burke Royster. “We are committed to a studentcentered culture, which means everything we do is focused on responding to the individuality of our more than 76,000 students. Some students need academic, social, or emotional support and mentoring, while others just need guidance, challenges, and opportunities. In all cases, we are committed to helping students fulfill their potential and ensure a bright future for them and our community.” The District has received National Accreditation from the AdvancED Accreditation Commission, recognizing it as a high-quality school district. In addition, it is South Carolina’s leader in school choice, featuring schools of various sizes in urban, suburban and rural settings, and magnet academies offering specialized studies in areas such as communications, foreign languages, the arts, science and mathematics. About 16 percent of district students take advantage of school choice to match their needs and interests. TEACHER OF THE YEAR For the second consecutive year, a teacher in a Simpsonville-based school was named the entire District’s Greenville County Teacher of the Year award in 2017. Suzanne Billings, a fourth-grade teacher at Plain Elementary School, earned the honor. She has taught at Plain for 10 years and is the first teacher at that 950-student school to be

18

so honored. “Suzanne is the consummate professional who has true passion for children, teaching and learning,” said Debbie Mihalic, Plain Elementary Principal. “She is very innovative and is a designated ‘inclusion’ teacher who works closely with special education students who periodically come to join her students for certain activities. Suzanne inspires all students to learn and succeed by fostering a collaborative environment at school.” Billings has initiated an interaction between her classroom and a special-needs classroom of similarly aged children challenged by autism, intellectual, physical and developmental delays and emotional disabilities. The two classrooms interact for 30 minutes, once every two weeks, in order to open the fourth graders’ eyes to different people’s unique abilities and to encourage people’s compassion. “And the skills they have learned by interacting with the special-needs children have even spilled over into our classroom with students now understanding that everyone has different abilities. Some are good at math. Others are good at other things and we all need help sometimes, so you shouldn’t make fun of people when they need and ask for help,” Billings said. “Working with the specialneeds students has taught

my students acceptance, kindness, and many amazing life skills. They are now super excited to see each other in the hallways.” Interactions between the classrooms include communication games, service projects like making posters to put up around the school, reading to each other, making thank-you cards and training for the Special Olympics. “This classroom interaction has taught the students that we are all the same. We just face different challenges,” Principal Mihalic noted. “This initiative led by Suzanne Billings fits beautifully into our school vision: ‘A School Family Positively Committed to Excellence.’ We work to foster a student-centered, family environment with strong relationships and an emphasis on both education and security. There is a compassionate, calm school culture.” In addition, “the teachers at Plain collaborate well and have high morale. As a result, the environment is very positive,” Billings added. GOLDEN STRIP CAREER TECHNOLOGY CENTER Golden Strip Career Technology Center serves schools in the Simpsonville area. It offers career preparation in culinary arts, digital art and design, welding, cosmetology, machine tool technology, early childhood education, building construction, automotive technology, auto collision repair, HVAC, law enforcement, mechatronics and more. The extremely popular areas of endeavor – health science and agriculture – have been moved into each of the Greenville County high schools so that more students may enroll.

Begun in the late 1970s, Golden Strip is one of four such career centers within the Greenville County School District. It currently serves approximately 600 students, primarily from JL Mann, Hillcrest and Mauldin high schools. “We offer 15 programs that are designed to give students the essential skills, attitude and mindset that they will need to do well in life. This is not just a trade school. It is a lifelong skills school,” said JF Lucas, director. Ninth-graders can go to the Career Center for exploratory sessions to see what fields interest them; then 10th-12thgraders get their training; and 11th and 12th graders may participate in co-ops, internships and apprenticeships. Some of the career center courses are dual-credit which means a student may receive college credit for their Career Center course. Once they have learned the basic skills in their field, students are encouraged to engage in internships and paid apprenticeships at local companies like Michelin, Steuken, Gregory Electric and Brasfield & Gorrie. Many students – 104 this past school year – also earn their OSHA-10 safety certificate in addition to industry certifications such as Automotive Service Excellence or EPA Section 608. “We have companies that pay students to work for them while also going to school,” Lucas said. “Our Work-Based Learning Coordinator, Lynn Tuten, has as her main mission to find work for our students. She makes contacts, arranges for internships and prepares our students for interviews and making work connections.” “Michelin hires our mechatronics students as apprentice ‘reliability technicians’ who perform mechanical and technical machine maintenance. It is a highly-skilled and paid position that they are struggling to fill because current employees are retiring,” Tuten said. Mechatronics is a field that is a combination of mechanical engineering, electronics, computer engineering, telecommunications engineering, systems engineering and control engineering. Bosch and many other local manufacturing companies hire these students. “We have students interning in various industries. Examples include Steuken, a German company that hires our machine tool students for internships and apprenticeships and even pays their college tuition, and Southeastern Products, a firm that make grocery store interiors. They have hired one of our students as an industrial painter,” she added. According to Tuten, students from the Career Center’s fire technology courses co-op with several area fire departments and HVAC students have found employment at both Carolina Heating and Gregory Electric. “We would love to have more district students be a part of what we are doing here. Most get internships, co-ops and certifications so that they can go right to work after high school, if that is what they want to do. Parents often don’t realize the opportunities we offer,” she added. GREENVILLE TECHNICAL COLLEGE A popular option for higher education after high school is nearby Greenville Technical College’s Brashier Campus. It is the most convenient community college campus for residents of Simpsonville, Mauldin, Fountain Inn and other nearby communities. It houses core programs including nursing, welding, industrial maintenance/mechatronics and fire

science. The campus also offers high-quality general education courses that transfer to any college or university. For this reason, the college is a good place for local residents to begin their higher education. In fact, high school students are encouraged to pursue dual enrollment in courses at the technical college while simultaneously completing their high school requirements. Greenville Technical College also plays an active part in the surrounding community. Its faculty and staff understand that an educated workforce attracts new businesses and encourages economic development in a region, so they partner closely with local municipal, business and education leaders on a variety of local councils in order to foster community growth.

I am a visual learner who benefits from using hands-on materials. I receive lessons in a classroom with a 12:1 student to teacher ratio. I am encouraged to explore subjects that interest me. I am Five Oaks Academy.

he Simpsonville Area and Fountain Inn Chambers of Commerce worked together in 2018 to launch Leadership Golden Strip, a leadership development program for local business people in the Golden Strip area. The inaugural class began in June 2018, with participants graduating in spring 2019. LGS is a 10-month program for professionals with the desire and ability to shape the future of our vibrant communities. Through face-to-face meetings with regional leaders and on-site visits with local agencies and businesses, participants explore the major issues and unique challenges facing the Golden Strip area. “We are thrilled for this opportunity to collaborate with one of our neighboring Chambers, and to offer a more robust leadership development option for members of our community,” said Simpsonville Area Chamber President Allison McGarity. The Simpsonville Area Chamber has a strong history of developing community leaders by providing its own Leadership Simpsonville program, which will now be incorporated into the LGS program. “Since joining the staff of the Fountain Inn Chamber last November, I have been pursuing meaningful opportunities to engage our members and encourage workforce and leadership development,” said Fountain Inn Chamber President Whitney Ferguson. “This collaboration is in line with the mission of our Chamber, and I anticipate that our members will be eager to become involved.” LGS participants must complete a rigorous application process, uphold the program’s strict attendance policy and meet all program requirements in order to graduate. The graduating class will be publicly recognized with a formal graduation ceremony. This dynamic program cultivates corporate and community leaders by introducing them to the various aspects of developing and maintaining a vibrant community, establishing dialogue with fellow community leaders, and facilitating their contributions to the betterment of the community. Leadership Golden Strip will fuel a network of strong, informed, community-minded leaders that will go on to work for local businesses, start their own ventures, and continue to serve those around them. The program begins with a two-day retreat and continues with monthly sessions that cover topics such as local and state government, education, arts and history, infrastructure and more. Each session includes facility tours, expert presentations and one-on-one meetings with inspirational community leaders. As the business community continues to grow, McGarity is excited about the future of the partnership with the Fountain Inn Chamber. “We are constantly looking for new strategies to shake things up and increase the value that our Chamber provides for the business community here in Simpsonville,” she said. “Leadership Golden Strip is one of our pillar programs which upholds the Chamber’s mission statement. We are very proud of our graduates and excited for what is to come.”

f e at u r e d l o c a l bu s i n e s s e s FIRST RELIANCE BANK First Reliance Bank arrived in the Simpsonville/Greater Greenville community during the first quarter of 2018 when it acquired Independence Bancshares, Inc and its subsidiary, Independence National Bank. Ranked among the top 20 banks in South Carolina with assets of nearly $535 million and 170 associates, First Reliance was founded in Florence in 1999 by longtime bankers and brothers, Rick and Paul Saunders, and their friend, Dale Porter. Today First Reliance Bank has branches statewide, as well as in Winston-Salem and Lake Norman, North Carolina. “We have a great team of bankers and now we have the resources of a strong community bank behind us. We are looking forward to growing our business in the thriving upstate of South Carolina,” said Kemper Kenan, First Reliance City Executive for Greenville/Simpsonville. “We believe banking is not simply about dollars and cents. First Reliance Bank serves hard-working Americans who prefer to bank with people who understand their needs and are committed to helping them achieve their financial goals,” said Pam Rhoads, Vice President Marketing and Customer Relationship Management. First Reliance has been recognized for its success, including receiving a Banky Award from the Institute for Extraordinary Banking for being among the top one percent of banks in the country. It is also the only company ever to be named to The Top 25 Fastest Growing Companies in South Carolina four times running.

22

The staff at First Reliance weathered the global economic crisis that began a decade ago and reshaped the way it does business. It was a difficult journey, Rhoads noted, one that required strong risk management, credit discipline, efficiency and expense management – while also expanding their ability to generate profits through the expansion of a mortgage business line and auto lending as competitive advantages – but they succeeded and continue to expand. The First Reliance Bank team gets to know each customer personally and provides them with products and services focused on “convenience” and being “easy to do business with.” They also offer a variety of communityoriented custom programs through which they are able to treat their customers like individuals and not account numbers including programs for young adults, mothers, hometown heroes (police, fire, teachers) and those who have had trouble managing a bank account. The bank also makes significant economic contributions to the communities they serve. For instance, First Reliance annually donates over 800 volunteer hours of service and is one of the top local contributors to the American Cancer Association. Finally, First Reliance provides financial literacy videos and information used in school presentations to encourage people to save, budget, and develop strong money management habits. The bank’s online banking service also has a free financial management and budgeting component available to support customer needs.

Cleveland Park East Animal Hospital HOURS OF OPERATION Monday through Friday 7:30am to 6pm Saturday 7:30am to 12:00pm PRIMROSE SCHOOL OF SIMPSONVILLE AT FIVE FORKS Primrose School of Simpsonville at Five Forks, a highly-rated and nationally-known preschool and childcare franchise, opened in Simpsonville in August 2015. The school, located at 2255 Woodruff Road, boasts a very special and unique lineage that sets it apart from the other 375 Primrose Schools across the country. This school was opened by Meggie and Buck Bradberry, the daughter and son-in-law of the preschool chain’s founders. Paul and Marcy Erwin founded Primrose Country Day School, the first Primrose School, in Marietta, Georgia, in 1982. Six years later the chain’s fourth school opened and was the first to be franchised. That same year, Jo Kirchner, the company’s current President and CEO, was hired as a consultant to help shift the then half-day preschool to a full-day model, as well as to assist in the launch of the franchising concept. She remains at the helm of the AdvancED Corporation accredited family of schools today. Meggie Bradberry, owner of the Simpsonville Primrose School, grew up attending her parents’ preschool and learned the business through osmosis by listening to her parents’ discussions over the dinner table for years. One of the schools’ animal mascots – a pig – is even named “Meggie.” She majored in marketing at the University of Georgia, and then worked for a Charlotte-based bank. Meanwhile, Buck worked in construction. However, they both desired to become entrepreneurs. The couple started a small company with moderate success. But when Meggie became pregnant, the couple started thinking about following in the Erwins’ footsteps and opening a Primrose School. They purchased land and spent two years building the facility. Today the Primrose School of Simpsonville cares for over 180 children from 6 weeks to 6 years old – some part-time and some full-time, and offers after-school programs for children up to age 12. Meggie and Buck’s children, Mae, age 4, and Hank, 1, both attend the school. Operating Monday through Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., the school employs a full-time chef who prepares five meals and snacks each day for their tiny charges. The school follows the company’s proprietary Balanced Learning curriculum, which combines traditional, teacher-guided learning with more child-initiated play and emphasizes building character in students. The concept of “giving without expecting” is central to their teaching. Primrose also emphasizes parent communication in order to foster the connection between home and school and create continuity in the children’s educational experience. For more information, visit www.primroseschools.com/schools/ simpsonville or call (864) 757-1191.

We Offer Services for Dogs, Cats, Pet Birds and Exotics. We are highly skilled in Soft Tissue & Orthopedic Surgery, Advanced Dentistry, Spays, Neuters, In House Laboratory & Pharmacy, Boarding and Grooming.

hile the Simpsonville area retains its small-town charm, the region is growing, adapting, and continuing to realize its potential. Over the last two decades, the Simpsonville community has become a popular residential area for young couples, families and retirees due to its proximity to larger cities like Greenville and its convenient offerings for shopping, dining and recreation. At the same time, the population in the city limits has increased by about 133 percent, and the trend will likely continue for the foreseeable future. While the numbers of residents and rooftops have increased over time, the pace of local commercial development has not always kept up. Understandably, the Great Recession hurt many investors with eyes on Simpsonville, and put many plans on pause. The challenge for Simpsonville today is embracing a future of economic growth while honoring our past and preserving our identity. The community has a strong desire to keep its small-town charm, and leaders are sensitive to that desire when considering major shifts in planning and zoning strategies. Unfortunately, plots of land have gone underutilized, “for sale or lease” signs have lingered and residents have needed to drive 15-20 minutes to enjoy fine dining, shop for pet supplies or buy organic groceries. Now, Simpsonville is accelerating economically with no signs of slowing down. Simpsonville’s business landscape is best broken into four trending commercial areas: Downtown, Fairview Road/Harrison Bridge Road, West Georgia Road and the Five Forks area. Downtown offers the traditional Main Street business district with local shops and restaurants, community events and historic architecture. The Fairview Road/Harrison Bridge Road area features big box retailers and nationally branded commercial developments. Five Forks has an intriguing variety of local and regional franchises and smaller retailers. The West Georgia Road area includes the Brashier Campus of Greenville Technical College, medical offices, and grocery stores. Each of these commercial areas is evolving to meet the needs of Simpsonville’s residents. Downtown has seen a lot of transition in the last five years, with many storefronts changing hands and becoming destination retailers like

24

specialty restaurants or bars, antique dealers, and unique gift stores. These types of businesses attract both visitors and residents, and offer a reason to “stay a while” and enjoy Simpsonville’s past and present. The City of Simpsonville and Greenville County are working to bring a main trunk of the Swamp Rabbit Trail to downtown. Securing a connection to the popular trail is part of a larger effort by the city to create a city-wide trails plan. With a grant from the National Park Service, the city is working to bring multiple trail connections to Simpsonville. Already on Main Street is the clock tower donated by former Mayor Ralph S. Hendricks in 1987. The clock tower is an important historical landmark that is itself a destination. As the city grows and adapts to a new economic climate, the clock tower is a reminder of where we come from as we learn where we are going. The types of businesses in the Fairview Road/ Harrison Bridge Road area have remained constant in recent years, but the size of this area is quickly expanding. A recent development in this commercial area is a 22.5-acre shopping center, where the most commercial building is taking place. The architecture of the buildings complements the heritage of the old farm land on which the center was developed. The shopping center now houses a Hobby Lobby, Publix and newly opened Chili’s, and will soon include Sharonview Federal Credit Union. Other retailers that have come to the Fairview/ Harrison Bridge roads area in recent years include Petco, PetSmart, Michaels, Planet Fitness and Bee Safe Storage. A new Aldi store recently opened. Tracts of land remain available in this area, so it is certain there is more to come in the years ahead. The Five Forks area of Simpsonville boasts a

median household income that’s more than twice that of the state’s, and a lot of the commercial development in the area serves that market. Lowes Foods is a regional grocery chain that opened a new store model in the area to offer fresh local produce, made-to-order meals and a full-service deli and bakery, plus all the brands typically found at a grocery store. A boutique fitness studio, fresh smoothie shop, and a salon have also joined the shopping strip. In March, the Greenville County Library System’s newest branch opened in Five Forks. The 28,000-square-foot Five Forks Branch is the second largest out of all 12 branches, has two drive-up windows and offers the latest technology that makes checking materials in and out fast and efficient. Although the West Georgia Road area may be the least developed, this area too is rapidly changing. The current renovation of Cotton Mill Commons to bring Class A apartments to the area is expected to increase property values and improve quality of life. In recent years, a Neighborhood Wal-Mart has opened, several multi-family complexes are in process, available land is being snatched up and announcements of planned developments should be made in the coming weeks and months. As the momentum of economic growth and development builds and builds, it’s no wonder why the Simpsonville community continues to be a vibrant place for people to call home and earn a living. An expanding residential market has drawn a diverse selection of businesses that have created jobs for people served by new apartment and housing developments. Simpsonville is proudly meeting the challenge of planning for its economic future while keeping its small-town charm with thoughtful sustainable growth.
