Rocky Mount is a steadily growing town of about 60,000. It is in a great location, with Raleigh 45 minutes west, Greenville 45 minutes east, and more beaches than you can count within 2-3 hours’ drive eastward. The historic Rocky Mount Mills has become a major social scene in the area featuring multiple restaurants, 8+ breweries, a coffee shop, and routinely offers live music and events. There are also 100+ residential properties and 120,000 square feet of offices on the property. It is located along the Tar River and is connected to the 3-mile greenway which runs along the river and features multiple parks with basketball courts, baseball fields, volleyball courts, picnic areas, and playgrounds. We have the largest dog park in the state located beside the greenway. There is a Monk-to-Mill trial that extends from the Mill into downtown. Downtown is being renovated at an alarming rate, with more than 4 million dollars from private investors made between September and November of 2017. The sports complex is one of the ten largest in the country and is being expanded to include an event center for basketball and volleyball, as well as concerts and other showings. The conference rooms on the 2nd floor will be state of the art and overlook downtown. The city’s animal shelter recently got a new facility that is much more spacious to allow for more animals. There is a reservoir just outside of town for fishing and boating activities. We have 3 golf courses and a steadily growing number of quality farm to table restaurants.
Rocky Mount is a great place to live and raise a family. Homes and land are very affordable. The Rocky Mount High School is one of the greenest schools in the state. We have multiple elementary and middle schools, 4 high schools, and a private school. As for safety, the crime rate is the lowest we have seen since the early 1970’s. For those that don’t want to drive for travel, we have a nationally recognized historic train station that is on the main Amtrak route which runs from Maine to Miami.
There are many investment opportunities here as well. An eager veterinarian would have a difficult time passing on this possibility, both with Hicks Animal Clinic and the city of Rocky Mount. If you are interested, don’t hesitate to contact us regarding the position. Again, practice buy-in options can be made available. Thanks for your consideration.
