I have not seen any new post about Rocky Mount. I see a lot of extreamly nice houses there for sale. Is the area getting any better?

i was driving through rocky mount just yesterday. it was only a quick first impression and only of the main road. one side of it was new and growing, one side of it was very run down. it did not look like it had much life other than fast food places and super market.

Its because Rocky Mount has the highest crime in North Carolina now. It has turned into a hole. Also it has no good restaraunts. People there consider Outback Steakhouse fine dining, lol. Ford's Colony is its only redeeming quality these days.

This is unfortunate. My grandmother rode through a few days ago and found a community that she likes. She was thinking about moving down next year. Why is that developer investing in another brand new community if Rocky Mount is so awful?

Even though there are plenty of current Rocky Mount detractors on C-D, you might want to take a personal look yourself rather than relying on comments in an 8 yr old internet thread.
