FROM THE DESK OF: Mayor Dexter McLendon
As Mayor, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the City of Greenville, Alabama!
Located along Interstate 65 in Butler County, we are a growing community that has become a destination point in recent years. Visitors from around the world travel to our city to play golf at Cambrian Ridge on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. Greenville is also home to a number of annual events that draw people to our community including Old Time Farm Day. Downtown you’ll find the historic Ritz Theatre where the legendary Hank Williams performed. Renovated in recent years, the Ritz plays host to a number of performances each year including those sponsored by the Greenville Area Arts Council and our local schools.
I’m proud to say Greenville is a city that has seen rapid economic growth over the last decade. We are home to two Tier One suppliers for Hyundai’s automobile production plant in Montgomery as well as several other major industrial operations. Our interstate area is also experiencing growth with several new businesses, including an eight-screen movie theatre, that opened in 2007. Along Commerce Street you’ll find a thriving downtown area that includes specialty shops, restaurants and numerous other businesses.
Our schools are another source of pride. In fact, the public school system in our county recently approved a $25 million bond issue for physical improvements that will lead to upgrades at our elementary and middle schools in the Camellia City as well as construction of new athletic facilities at our high school.
But the heart of Greenville is the people who make up this city. We are a diverse community, proud of what we’ve accomplished but looking forward to a better and brighter tomorrow for all of our citizens. Friendly smiles and hospitality are our trademark and we’re excited that others outside our borders are starting to learn who we are, what we’re about and what we have to offer!
This website was designed to give you insight into our community and to provide information on the various services available. We hope local residents and visitors alike will find the comprehensive information useful.
Now I invite you to take the time to explore Greenville!
