75 G r e e r Community Master Plan Wade Hampton Boulevard is a major regional route between Greenville and Spartanburg and land uses along the 30- mile corridor vary. The City of Greer has enhanced Wade Hampton Boulevard within the city limits through new development signage standards improved architecture and landscaping. The focus area extents Brannon Drive to Tryon Street were chosen to address key intersections at Buncombe Road and West Poinsett Street and account for the newer commercial developments just west of the intersection at Buncombe Road. While the master plan outlines strategies for the entire focus area a more immediate emphasis is placed on areas surrounding the intersections at Buncombe Road and West Poinsett Street. Both of these corridors provide access to downtown and show a greater likelihood for improvement over the next 10 to 15 years as illustrated on the susceptibility diagram on the facing page. Building on recent higher quality development in the area along Wade Hampton Boulevard the city should consider establishing andor strengthening the corridors site design architectural and signage standards. Site Design In general building setbacks should be limited based on the size of the structures and parking should be prohibited between outparcel buildings and the public right-of-way. Setbacks for other retail structures should not exceed 80 feet for stand-alone retailrestaurant structures or 250 feet from the public right-of-way. Landscape standards should incorporate tree plantings along the public right of way and within larger surface parking lots. While these applications primarily relate to new development the city could retrofit portions of the corridor by seeking state and federal grants typically transportation alternative grants under the current federal transportation legislation. Architectural Standards and Wayfinding Stronger architectural standards near the intersection of Wade Hampton Boulevard and West Poinsett Street would provide a gateway and wayfinding to downtown. Brick should be a major building material and more traditional architectural forms Wade Hampton
