“Despite the fact that many people haven’t considered it before, Rocky Mount is actually a great place to retire,” Home Snacks blogger, Chris Kolmar explained. “The numbers don’t lie, retirees are comfortable here,” Kolmar continued. “Rocky Mount is super close to Chapel Hill, Durham, and Raleigh, so you will never get bored. The city itself has a lot of great museums, historic places, and multiple venues for its growing arts and culture programs.”

The “Short List” Gets Shorter: Best Cities to Retire in NC and Best Master Planned Communities in the U.S.

Best-Master-Planned-Communities-in-US
Belmont Lake Preserve has been named by “Where to Retire” magazineas one of the 50 Best Master Planned Communities in the United States

The city of Rocky Mount has continuously climbed up the Home Snacks rankings. Their ranking improved in each of the four years they have ranked the Best Cities to Retire in North Carolina. However, it would seem that coupled with another award received by Belmont Lake Preserve would ironically put the city on a “short list” of retirement destinations.

In 2015, “Where to Retire” magazine named Belmont Lake Preserve among the Top 50 Best Master Planned Communities in the U.S. The irony was that they call the Top 50 communities as the “Short List.” Hence, given Rocky Mount’s increased desirability for retirees and Belmont Lake’s already lofty status as a retirement community, it seems this is your perfect landing spot for the retirement years.

Retiring in North Carolina is a trend that consistently sees more parents and grandparents relocating to the Tar Heel State each year. An obvious reason would be location due to the influx of their children and younger families heading to NC first. However, upon further research, we think you’ll find a number of other reasons for Retiring in North Carolina. Similarly, and more specifically there are a number of reasons that once looking in NC, you’ll agree the perfect retirement fit is at the new homes in Rocky Mount at Belmont Lake Preserve (BLP) golf community.

Retiring-in-North-Carolina
Belmont Lake Preserve features over acres of outdoor green space and likewise, the city of Rocky Mount has some of the most spectacular walking and hiking trails in the entire Southeast.

The Perfect Location for Retiring in North Carolina

As earlier stated, there is a great allure to Retiring in North Carolina, especially for those who have family that has made the move prior. In contrast, what many retirees don’t realize is the proximity of NC to almost any major city or area on the east coast.

Thus, if a retired couple has difficulty choosing a location as they have one grown child with a family in Georgia and another in Maryland, selecting one or the other puts them at a greater distance from the location not chosen. As a result, the perfect location would find them Retiring in North Carolina. Even more specifically, the perfect destination in North Carolina, “location-wise,” would be the Belmont Lake Preserve golf community.

The new homes in Rocky Mount at Belmont Lake Preserve place you ideally within reasonable driving distance from major cities and areas in the state or the Eastern U.S. The statistics below show the actual distance you would be from major NC and U.S Cities once Retiring in North Carolina.=

Whether you are Retiring in North Carolina may depend on the Weather

Most noteworthy for those relocating from further North is the change in climate when Retiring in North Carolina. While NC still enjoys its four seasons, they receive significantly less snowfall than the states to the north.

Sure, the NC summer’s can get warm, but comparatively the average temperature statewide is very livable in the mid-70’s.

From what you’ve seen already, the answer is an obvious, yes. North Carolina does have a low cost of living and is very affordable for those in the retirement years. However, don’t take our word for it…for further analysis on the cost of living and affordability, the following paragraph was quoted from the digital personal finance publication, moneywise.com. (In actuality, moneywise also backs us up on the location and climate too!)

“North Carolina is one of the few places where you can visit rugged mountains and sandy beaches in the same day,” the blog posting says. “With its hot and humid summers and mild-to-chilly winters, the Tar Heel State has the perfect climate for enjoying its charming towns and waterfronts.”

Moving along to cost of living, moneywise concludes, “…Social Security benefits are not taxed, and property taxes are comparatively low.”The cost of living in North Carolina is 5% below the national average and studies put the state in the top 20 for affordability.”

Best-Cities-to-Retire-in-NC

With the countless options in outdoor living and active lifestyle in Rocky Mount, the reasons to choose the premier NC golf and retirement community,Belmont Lake Preserve are plentiful, however, for those looking to continue or revisit your education, North Carolina Wesleyan College offers up maybe the top reason to Retire in North Carolina.

Located directly next door to Belmont Lake Preserve, and ranked fourth statewide for return on investment for their graduates, North Carolina Wesleyan College (NCWC) specializes in those returning students choosing to Retire in North Carolina and others their adult years through their highly accredited ASPIRE programs. (Adult Student Programs: Innovative, Respected, and Engaging).

According to the NCWC website these programs aimed at returning students who Retire in North Carolina or otherwise, “are nonresidential baccalaureate degree programs designed to meet the educational needs of adult learners.” The explanation at ncwc.edu continued to say,  “ASPIRE under the Office of Adult & Professional Studies allows mature women and men to tailor their degree work to meet personal, career, and life goals. Learners work at their own pace with the option of maintaining full-time or part-time course loads.”  They piece went further to detail that “Because mature adults like those set to Retire in North Carolina are highly motivated and capable of self-directed learning, ASPIRE learners can take advantage of 5-week, 8-week, hybrid, and online classes, as well as opportunities for earning credit through alternative options such as CLEP and DSST testing.”

So, if academically “re-inventing” yourself as you Retire in North Carolina in hopes of pursuing a new business venture or if you just would like to learn about new subjects and take some courses at NCWC, your next move in your education is literally minutes away from your new home at the Belmont Lake Preserve. The school offers degree programs in Business Administration, Psychology, Religious Studies, Criminal Justice, Education, Accounting, and Computer Information Systems, and individual on site courses on Management, Organizational Development, and Human Resource Management through its Corporate Advantage Program (CAP).

On top of the conveinience of both location and choices to continue your education at NC Wesleyan as you Retire in North Carolina, the actual time involved in completing the courses also weighs heavily in your favor, as courses can be completed in just eight weeks, night classes from 6-10 p.m., and college credit can be earned and applied to a degree through the CAP courses if desired.

Rocky-Mount-Community-Event

Taking a cue from the success of a similar Rocky Mount Community Event, “Paws in the Park,” the city’s Parks and Recreation Department invite pet owners and their dogs to be a part of the first ever “Splash Bark,” being held just up the street from your new home at Belmont Lake Preserve NC golf community at Sunset Spray Park on Sunday, September 18.

This unique Rocky Mount Community Event will feature many fun activities for you to enjoy with your dog throughout the three-hour festivities. These would include many of your favorite Sunset Park activities that you’ve come to love over the years, including taking a ride through the park on the train, circling around the carousel, and of course cooling off while splashing around with “man’s best friend” in the spray park.

This very special day for a pet and his owner begins at 2:00 pm. and wraps up at 5:00. Upon arrival to this Rocky Mount Community Event at Sunset Park it is asked that you and your pet enter through the concessions building. Also, for obvious safety precautions, a proof of your dogs’ rabies vaccination is required for entry. Your dog will be required to be on a leash in all areas of Sunset Park except for the spray park area, where they are free to splash and frolic at this Rocky Mount Community Event, “leash-free.”

In discussing the first ever “Splash Bark” event recently with the Rocky Mount Telegram, Event Organizer Alex Langley said, “We have a vibrant and excited dog lovers’ population in our community.” Langley continued, “Events like this enable us to provide increased activities for our four legged friends and their owners.”

For further information on “Splash Bark,” or any other upcoming Rocky Mount Community Event, visit the “Splash Bark” Facebook Event page or contact Alex Langley at alex.langley@rockymountnc.gov.

Rocky Mount Economic Development

With an influx of new jobs and businesses coming to town, Rocky Mount Economic Development continued on a huge upswing last week with the announcement that Rocky Mount has been selected as the location for an all new $272 million CSX rail-to-truck terminal project that will bring about 900 jobs to the area and another 1,500 state wide.

Announced on July 19 in a press conference held next door to the Belmont Lake Preserve North Carolina golf community, at the Dunn Center by Governor Pat McCrory, was the news of the project’s financial awards that were unanimously approved by the state’s Economic Investment Committee. These include $110 million from the N.C. Transportation Department in performance incentives, $4.3 million in Job Development Investment Grants, and $7.8 million in intermodal tax credits. Ensuring the huge spike in Rocky Mount Economic Development is the fact that for CSX to receive the above incentives, they must invest $160 million into the Rocky Mount facility by 2024, meet all local hiring goals and keep 876 jobs that are already in the state.

CSX CEO, Michael Ward spoke on the selection of Rocky Mount for the 500 acre terminal, which will transfer freight containers that hold a variety of consumer goods between trains and trucks by electric cranes before being  sent to their drop off destination. Ward noted that the ideal location, the growing industrial market in Rocky Mount, and its existing CSX rail operations all weighed into the project that will be a huge boost to Rocky Mount Economic Development.

Leonard Wiggins, the Chairman of the Edgecombe County Board of Commissioners spoke on several topics that residents may have been wondering about following the CSX announcement, as he had recently toured a similar facility in Ohio. “We stood right under this massive crane and you couldn’t hear it operate,” he offered up clearing the air for any residents who may have worries about any noise disturbances. Wiggins went on to remind residents that the terminal will also bring Rocky Mount back to its roots. “This is a railroad community,” he said. “ Railroad lines in Rocky Mount date back as far as 1840.”

This latest project in Rocky Mount Economic Development, the terminal, will be known as “The Carolina Connector” will also bring more public benefits and economic output for both the Rocky Mount community and the surrounding area. The Carolina’s Gateway Partnership noted that more than $310 million in public benefits and upwards of $125 million in statewide economic output. Gateway Partnership CEO, Norris Tolleson spoke to the huge effect this will have on the Rocky Mount Economic Development and the surrounding municipalities, stating, “This is the beginning of a new era of quality jobs in the Twin Counties.

The terminal is set to open for business in 2020 and CSX will host two open house events for the public to find out more and ask any questions they may have about the project. These will be held on Wednesday, July 27 at 6-8 pm at the Edgecombe County Administrative Building in Downtown Tarboro and on Thursday, July 28 in the Brown Auditorium at Nash Community College in Rocky Mount from 6-8 pm.

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST LAKE COMMUNITIES IN THE US

Best Lake Communities in the USThe premier North Carolina golf and retirement community, Belmont Lake Preserve has been selected by Ideal Living magazine as one of 2016 Best Lake Communities in the US among retirement living areas.

The recognition as one of the Best Lake Communities in the US for 2016, comes following a year that saw Belmont Lake Preserve as the recipient of several accolades. Most recently, the Rocky Mount NC golf community was named to the prestigious “Short List” by Where to Retire magazine as one of the 50 Best Master Planned communities in the United States. Likewise, the spectacular 18-hole, David Johnson Golf Design, Belmont Lake Golf Club weighed heavily into the community being honored by Ideal Living last year as one of 2015’s Best Golf Course Communities in the nation.

In their listing of the Best Lake Communities in the US, which will be featured in the upcoming annual “Best of the Best” Summer edition of Ideal Living, the selection process was based on the following ideas. “For many active adults, the appeal of lake living is in the availability of boating, fishing, swimming and other water sports. Other retirees may wish to live lakeside in order to enjoy the serenity offered by living near a peaceful, natural setting.” Given Belmont Lake Preserve’s 1400-acres of scenic, forested land which is set around the beautiful 80-acre Belmont Lake and the wide array of both on-site and near by outdoor living options, its inclusion among the Best Lake Communities in the US would come as no surprise to those familiar with its stunning natural beauty.

Particularly impressive were the accolades dealt out from the representatives of Blue Cross Blue Shield in regards to the Nash UNC Rocky Mount Health Care facility’s Nash Surgical Weight Loss Center and Joint Replacement Center. Citing their reasoning behind bestowing the honor on the Rocky Mount Health Care facility, the expertise of the hospital’s medical staff and the impressive track record of positive results were noted.

Additionally, Nash UNC Rocky Mount Health Care was evaluated on overall patient satisfaction and the willingness of said patients to recommend Nash UNC to others. Larry Chewning, President of Nash UNC Health Care, spoke enthusiastically with the Rocky Mount Telegram newspaper on the recognition, noting that it “reflects thousands of hours of clinical experience, expertise, and patient satisfaction.”

Chewning continued on, heaping praises and beaming with pride in talking about his employees. “Our team members work hard to provide high quality care for our patients, and we couldn’t be prouder of their achievements,” he concluded.
