Letter from the Mayor

I would like to personally extend my welcome to you on behalf of the great City of Mauldin, located in the upstate of South Carolina. If you are a new resident or business locating to Mauldin you will be joining one of the fastest growing communities in the Southeast as our population continues to grow at a healthy pace surpassing 25,000 residents. We are currently the 17th-largest city of the 270 municipalities in the state of SC.

As you consider relocating to our city, let me provide you with some statistics as to why we would be a great choice. Recent surveys show Mauldin as one of the three best places to live within the state of South Carolina. A national ranking of  the two best cities in the state, Mauldin was ranked 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 city employees at over 200 strong are ready to provide top notch services to our citizens daily. Our police force continues to maintain their CALEA certification and prides themselves on our community based law enforcement. Our School Resource Officer  program enjoys a well received presence in all of our community schools; elementary, middle, high school and our career center.

Our fire department is one of only a few in our state to maintain an ISO class rating of 1. Our public works department provides Mauldin residents with clean neighborhoods with efficient garbage and recycling services along with leaf/limb and debris pickup services. Our street and sewer departments through proactive and documented preventative maintenance programs ensure that our infrastructure is performing as it should be.

New and existing businesses will find our Building Development Services department continuing to improve their automated processes in permitting and licenses activities along with a customer service attitude resulting in a proven business-friendly environment.

The City of Mauldin believes each of its residents deserves the best quality of life.  Establishing a positive community increases demand for activity, attracting more businesses and services and paving the way for jobs and economic growth. In pursuit of this mission, the City of Mauldin operates three facilities:  the Mauldin Cultural Center, the Mauldin Sports Center and the Ray Hopkins Senior Center.

The Mauldin Cultural Center offers arts education classes in skill like woodcarving, pottery, multi-media arts, guitar and voice. The Cultural Center also offers a welcoming environment for performing arts.

Mauldin Recreation offers community sports for youth and adults and engages people through fitness at the Mauldin Sports Center, which features an indoor climbing wall, an indoor track and a wide range of exercise equipment. The Sports Center offers a variety of fitness classes, including Zumba, yoga, cycling, Pilates and a wide range of exercise equipment.

The Ray Hopkins Senior Center welcomes thousands of seniors each month for exercise classes, games, trips, seminars, theatre and more. Both the Sports Center and the Senior Center offer the SilverSneakers program, through which eligible members can have the cost of their fitness classes covered by their health insurance.

Mauldin has grown over the years and continues to look to the future while remaining focused on providing the best the Upstate has to offer its residents, visitors and businesses. New residences, offices, retail and restaurants will dot the landscape that will make up our future City Center project. The Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail System will utilize these new projects to connect Mauldin to the larger Upstate community, changing the landscape for years to come.

As we grow and develop, our city residents continue to cherish family values to be at the core of our community here in Mauldin. On behalf of our city council and our employees, we welcome you to the City of Mauldin.

Economic Development

Economic Development in Mauldin SC

Mauldin continues to grow, gaining quality development projects that enhance the quality of life for its citizens and surrounding community.

Mauldin’s many new projects include urban development attracting mixed-use components that promote opportunities to live, work and play. BridgeWay Station, a new mixed-use design, will lead the way in development over the next few years with over one million square-feet of new product in phase one. BridgeWay Station will be connected to Mauldin by a pedestrian bridge that will span over I-385, allowing the Swamp Rabbit Trail to finally cross over into southern Greenville County, including Simpsonville and Fountain Inn.

“This bridge will open incredible economic development potential for hospitality and retail sectors, and I’m excited that Mauldin and its partners could make that happen,” said Councilman Taft Mattney, chair of city council’s Economic Planning and Development Committee.

The recent announcement and development of several projects all point to the need for additional housing and services to the city. Such projects include Courtyard by Marriott with $18 million in construction cost with 35 jobs; Koops Manufacturing adding 150 jobs; and the expansion of Samsung-Alorica that will include 400 jobs; Alo with a $6 million investment to add at least 44 new jobs; and Global Lending Services LLC with more than $4.2 million investment and 669 new jobs.

Housing development in Mauldin has increased tenfold, and the city has annexed over 500 acres of undeveloped properties with projects anticipated for each annexation. The city continues to look for opportunities for future infill development projects, adding to the mix of projects already located within city limits. Mauldin expects to see more than 2,000 new homes built over the next two to five years.

Mauldin continues to see redevelopment projects come to fruition, including the redevelopment of vacant buildings such as the former Lynn’s Shoes on South Main into a Starbucks; the opening of J Peters Grill and Bar in the Corporate Center of Millport; the redevelopment of Jerry’s Gas Station to house another restaurant group. With so many businesses bringing new life to old locations in Mauldin, the city continues to show that its landscape is growing by the day.

Redevelopment also includes the city’s vision for an urban downtown village. In October 2019, Mauldin selected a firm to redevelop its downtown, creating an urban core to boost business and enhance community connections. The firm, Contour Development, hopes to break ground on the project in 2020.

The City Center Master Plan was envisioned as a sustainable mixed-use project providing great walkability to connect adjacent sites that include the Mauldin Cultural Center on East Butler Road and the Mauldin Sports Center on City Center Drive. Since the conceptual approval of City Center in 2009, City Council has, strategically, taken steps to lay the framework to facilitate this development project, including the purchase of properties and the implementation of a zoning overlay for the designated ±24 acres that make up the City Center area. In 2017, the future site of City Center was designated as a Multi County Park to encourage additional investment within City Center.

The development of this long-held downtown dream, as well as the extension of the Swamp Rabbit Trail through the proposed City Center and over I-385 to BridgeWay Station, will be instrumental in connecting Mauldin to the larger Upstate community and changing the landscape for years to come.

Mauldin still remains a safe, inviting community. The City has repeatedly been ranked among the safest cities to reside in by both state and national lists, as well as listed among the most affordable places to own a home. With a variety of recreational activities, arts and entertainment events, and a welcoming community, Mauldin continues to be a great place to live.
