Building that arena in Rocky Mount is like throwing money in a bonfire.

264 doesn't end at Five County Stadium. It used to end at Zebulon but when the Knightdale bypass was built the destination was extended to 440.

Link didn't work....

Yes, 264 was added to 64 when that bypass was built, but obviously both roads are intertwined...they have to be dealt with together.

Edit...actually as was noted in the link above that section is now I-495.

Agreed.

If they want to throw money at something it should be redeveloping their neighborhoods.

I guess the folks in Rocky Mount learned nothing from the failed Roanoke Rapids theater project up the road.

Did something happen to Cubbies uptown? I heard it might've closed, but I don't like posting anything that I am not 100% on.

I know that this area has been needing an actual organic grocer that is dedicated to providing safe and healthy and even local food for the community. It's clear that Oakmont is not interested in growing and providing organic produce and meat and Harris Teeter is limited and expensive. Fresh Market, if you don't know, is a joke. They just jack up the prices and mix in a few specialty items and let customers assume that every thing there is healthy because of the prices and the name of the store. I can't stand how misleading they are.
I know the owners that are opening the new place and they are by far more concerned about the health and well being of the community than anyone I've met. I'm very confident everything there will be organic or as close to organic as possible. It'll be nice to be able to shop locally and not have to hit 3 or 4 different stores to piece together a cart of non-toxic food. I'm super excited. I'll have more as things progress.
A little more info for those interested...

That is great news...the idea of local foods in Greenville is so simple, it's amazing it seems so complicated.

There are farms everywhere in the region...the problem is 1) The farmers who used to grow tobacco have not transitioned into organic foods...and 2) The reason why is the market has been so small for it in the region (as compared to say...Orange County.
