TRG founder Jeff Randolph was appointed to the seven-member City of Greenville Planning Commission in March 2020 and began serving in April. “The Planning Commission makes recommendations to the City Council on zoning and annexation issues; reviews and approves all new subdivisions and is involved in comprehensive planning to improve the health and welfare of the public.”
The two-time Clemson graduate, with a Bachelor’s in Political Science and Master’s of City and Regional Planning brings a wealth of planning and development experience and knowledge to the diverse board. Jeff has been a resident of Greenville County since 1984 and became a Greenville city resident in 2018. In 1994, he founded TRG (The Randolph Group), a residential and mixed-use residential development company that has received national recognition for its award-winning communities in the Southeast.
Commenting on his unique perspective Jeff said:
“With my planning and development background, I feel like I can make an informed contribution. Greenville is an award-winning city that continues to expand with dynamic and varied plans being proposed. Much of that success is owed to past planning. As Greenville continues to purposely grow planning is an essential component of that process. Getting to work with highly competent city staff responsible for this area and such a diverse and committed board is very rewarding. “
“Our city is a leader in the Palmetto State and has a positive influence on the planning of surrounding cities and municipalities. This provides an opportunity for me to contribute to our smaller cities and communities which is also exciting. Greenville is an impact city and it’s humbling to serve in a capacity that can make a positive, long-term impact for not only today’s but future residents as well.”
“Our city’s highest priority is making sure Greenville grows the right way. Jeff Randolph has long been a community leader in promoting careful planning to preserve our quality of life. His service on the Planning Commission will be invaluable.”
