Letter from the Mayor

If you are a new resident or business locating in Mauldin, I would like to personally welcome you to this great city nestled in the Upstate of South Carolina. You will be joining one of the fastest growing communities in the Southeast as our population almost doubled in size to over 25,000 residents in the past decade. Of the 270 municipalities in the state, Mauldin is now the 17th largest city.

If you are a new resident or contemplating moving into our city, you are making a great choice to relocate here and become a citizen of our great community. We are, according to movoto.com, one of the “Top 5 Best Places to Live in South Carolina”. All of our city employees are ready to serve you as they perform their daily tasks. In a national ranking of best places for retirement, Mauldin was named the 29th best city to retire in, with the City of Charleston ranked 20th. Mauldin was the only city in South Carolina to make Money magazine’s Top 100 Places to Live.

Our police department is proud of their CALEA certification and our fire department is one of only 37 of over 600 departments in the state with an ISO rating of 2. According to FBI crime statistics, Mauldin ranked the fifth safest city in the state. Our public works department provides Mauldin residents with clean neighborhoods through efficient garbage and recycling collection services along with leaf/limb and debris pickup services. Through structured preventive maintenance programs, our street and sewer departments ensure that our infrastructure is performing as it should be.

We are pleased to see positive growth trends with our businesses and residential communities as revenues and permit activity continues to increase. Our most recent financial audit indicated that we are very sound financially and we were upgraded to AA+ by Moody’s and A1 by S&P. According to Zippa.com of 62 cities ranked in the state, Mauldin ranked the fourth most successful city.

Mauldin’s recreation programs and facilities are first rate and state of the art. We offer some of the best recreation opportunities of any city in the state with 78 acres of parks in addition to the Mauldin Sports Center that includes a gymnasium, a climbing wall and a full line of fitness equipment and classes. Our senior citizens’ program continues to grow each and every year, and our seniors stay extremely active.

Mauldin’s Cultural Center, adjacent to the Sports Center and a stone’s throw from City Hall, continues to serve as a resource for the community by housing the Greater Mauldin Chamber of Commerce and various civic groups. Our newest addition to this venue is our outdoor amphitheater, hosting several performances including “Beaching Fridays” this year for eight weekends and featuring a farmers market during the summer months.

Event attendance and building usage continues to set new records for this venue. “Expect Greater Things” as we continue to invest in this facility both internally and externally.

If you are a business opening or relocating in our city, we also welcome you and take great pride in being the most “Business Friendly” city in the Upstate. Our goal is to make your transition to our city as seamless as possible. We were ranked by nerdwallett.com in the “Top 10 Cities in South Carolina to Start a Business.” You will also enjoy the benefits of the city’s great working relationship with what we consider the most active and professional Chamber of Commerce in the Upstate.

Family values are at the core of our community here in Mauldin. We hope that you will agree that we offer a high quality of life where you can “Expect Greater Things!” On behalf of the city council and our employees, we welcome you to the City of Mauldin.

Economic Development

Opportunities are rising in Mauldin for businesses and organizations, and Mauldin’s Economic Development team ensures that those opportunities continue to grow with the city.

Mauldin has attracted many new projects in recent months, and with new projects come new jobs. BB&T’s newly constructed 140,000-square-foot mortgage servicing center houses more than 600 BB&T associates. Combined with the announcement of a Courtyard by Marriott hotel to be constructed in Millport Circle, the two bring more than 800 jobs to Mauldin. Furthermore, Verizon Wireless’ expansion of existing operations in Mauldin will create 260 new jobs; MP Husky’s new 150,000-square-foot facility on Old Stage Road, currently under construction, is projected to create 50 new jobs; and Caristrap International recently announced its decision to locate its first U.S. facility in Mauldin, a project that will create 100 new jobs. Other businesses new to Mauldin project to bring jobs to the market over the next two to five years, including Morley, Anyone Home and Turbine Technologies, Inc.

Mauldin has seen several new and existing businesses undergo construction or renovation, including Jon Kane Fashions, who (with his daughters) designs and manufactures women’s accessories; the relocation of Little Pigs, a Mauldin mainstay for over 30 years; the recent opening of ACE Hardware; the renovation of Wendy’s; and construction on the soon-to-open Tropical Grille. Additionally, the Social Security Administration is relocating from Greenville to Mauldin’s North Main Street, while construction is underway on North Main for the Office of Disability and Adjudication Review.

Mauldin’s development includes the city’s vision for urban village growth and design. In coordination with Greenville County, the city of Mauldin obtained approval for two multi-county parks. Additionally, Mauldin has approved various amendments to its zoning ordinance that will bring its zoning laws into the 21st century and cultivate more mixed-use, pedestrian-friendly development throughout the city.

As the city continues to grow, Mauldin remains a safe, inviting community. In 2017, Money Magazine recognized Mauldin as one of the best places to live in the United States. Known for its excellent schools, great businesses, low crime rates, low property taxes and a great workforce, Mauldin was the top ranked South Carolina community on the magazine’s list. SmartAsset ranked the city as having the healthiest housing market in South Carolina, while the Palmetto Promise Institute listed Mauldin among the top five enterprise-friendly South Carolina cities.

The Mauldin community demands growth and excellence, and each City department strives to meet those demands. In addition, Mauldin City Council continues to support efforts in business and economic development, public safety, recreation, arts and culture and beautification. Working together, the people of Mauldin strive toward a bright and flourishing future.
