Knox White

Mayor
City of Greenville, SC

Mayor White has served as the mayor of Greenville, SC since 1995. During that time, he has led projects that have transformed the city’s downtown from blighted and deserted to one of the most vibrant main streets in America. Mayor White’s signature project, Falls Park, created an urban oasis around a once-covered waterfall in the center of the city. Currently, his focus is to expand Falls Park along the Reedy River to create a 60-acre green space, Unity Park, that will be bordered by affordable housing and renew a long-neglected neighborhood. Mayor White’s commitment to green space has created an urban environment that is inviting, vibrant, and charming to residents and visitors.
