Japanese TreesThe City of Greenwood, located in Upstate South Carolina, provides a friendly, small-town setting along with the progressive and active environment of a larger city. The City is the home to numerous community assets including Lander University, Connie Maxwell Children's Home, Uptown Greenwood, Self Regional Healthcare, the Greenwood Genetics Center, Wesley Commons Retirement Community, excellent schools, churches, cultural opportunities, nearby Lake Greenwood, and much, much more.

Over the last decade, the City has had over 60 annexations at the request of the individual property owner. The City has annexed a total of 2.5 square miles. Many have recognized the benefits of annexation, including single-family residential developments, apartments, schools, restaurants, commercial strip malls, banking institutions, medical facilities, and other public service providers.

CPW Electric EmployeeIf you are considering development in Greenwood, you are strongly urged to contact the City of Greenwood to discuss the benefits of being inside of the City!  The City of Greenwood, in conjunction with the Greenwood Commissioners of Public Works (CPW), offers many infrastructure reimbursement programs for residential and commercial developments. The programs tend to be project specific, therefore the City encourages developers to set up a meeting early in their design process. The level of assistance is determined on a project-by-project basis.
