Greenville NC to Rocky Mount NC
Initially Posted by OIT2GOD
I am always asked what do I think will be the negative and positive reasons for having Rocky Mount, Wilson and Greenville, NC. As a person who relocated to NC, exactly why isn't this location not linked like Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill or Greensboro, High aim and Winston-Salem? Can some body share? In my opinion it appear to be Greenville is dancing and Rocky Mount and Wilson is behind Greenville. Greenville features ECU and a great medical center today circumstances regarding the art, heart center and towns leaders who wish to town there city increase. What is rugged Mount and Wilson waiting on?I cannot speak for Rocky Mount, other than the fact I do not want it.
Wilson's issue is the old people who have most of the cigarette money. In the past, Wilson county had been the wealthiest county in NC. The richest city was Elm City (situated in wilson)
For some reason, they don't desire modification.
-Back in time when officials were hoping to find a spot to construct ECU, Wilson had been the towns opted for the school. The town of wilson, with several various other easstern NC cities, switched them down. ECU has become in Greenville.
-Back when you look at the 1990's, a plan was put in destination to develop an innovative new casino in wilson from I-95, on indian land. All the spiritual fans flipped, etc, etc, etc. Today, we no casino.
-Today, the wilson shopping mall (Parkwood shopping mall) is holding in by a thread. No body shops there any longer, and Belks relocated on west side of city...like everyone. Back in the first 2000's, somebody in the pipeline to construct a two-story mall in west wilson. All oldies complained, they stated we are able to save your self parkwood shopping center. Really, the shopping mall sucks even worse than in the past. It really is a thug hangout...and belks is fully gone. No two-story shopping center.
I love wilson, Yes it isn't the right town...and there's lots of room for improvement. I can not sit when anyone contrast Wilson to Rocky Mount, that's therefore untrue. Wilson is light years in front of Rocky Mount in my experience. I do not value the mall or perhaps the casino.one day, we will get the new mall, no biggy.
Whats great about wilson
1. BB&T - certainly one of, if not the largest homegrown financial institutions when you look at the southeast. founded in wilson, NC. A huge number of their particular tasks are still in Wilson today. Headquarters was at Wilson till about 2000. But the bank decided to go with for obvious reasons to go on to Winston-Salem. But BB&T will continue to include jobs in wilson.
