Town Manager’s Corner

Greetings from Mocksville Town Hall! It continues to be a blessing to live and work here in Mocksville. It is an honor to serve the Town. Mocksville is a very special place and I look forward to seeing some great things happen in the coming months. I am also excited to participate in many of our holiday celebrations.

Our Mayor and Town Board of Commissioners and town staff have been working very hard to make preparations for our projects that are or soon to be underway. I would like to sincerely thank the Mayor and the Town Board of Commissioners for their leadership in moving Mocksville forward. It is an honor to serve with our citizens.

Azalea Drive, Magnolia Avenue, Holly Lane, Beechwood Drive, Birchwood Lane, as well as Duke, Avon, Gwyn, Spruce Street, and sections Gaither Street have been resurfaced.

The second phase of the Main Street Park will be constructed starting in early October. I look forward to seeing this completed as our holiday seasons draw near. This park will include a downtown plaza with a fountain, old town clock, arbor trellis pergola, a covered shelter, flagpole, flower beds, and space to enjoy the landscape and the trees. A conceptual drawing is shown below.

We are also renovating Court Square. Four new Willow Oaks will be planted in October, and we have contracted with NCDOT to improve our traffic intersection to replace our wooden traffic poles with mast arm traffic signals.

The Town was recently awarded grant funding from the State of North Carolina to assist in the extension of water lines and roadway on Quality Drive in SouthPoint Business Park. This will make additional land available for several industrial sites that could create hundreds of jobs. The Town has also been awarded grants to pay for utility line mapping, and a grant has been awarded to assist in the expansion of Accumed.

As we enjoy the end of summer and the heart of the fall and holiday seasons, I hope that you have time to enjoy everyone and everything around you.

Sincerely,

Marcus Abernethy
Mocksville Town Manager
