Economic Development

In April of 2016, named Rolesville a Boom Town – one of ten fastest-growing neighborhoods in America that are slated to grow even faster—places where job opportunities abound, new households are forming, and new homes are being built to meet the growing demand. Town leaders are embracing the growth and welcome new commercial growth to serve the community.  

Rolesville holds great promise and opportunity for commercial growth, specifically retail businesses to serve current and future households and office and flex warehouse space for small to mid-sized companies. Most of these developers are watching the number and rate of development of “rooftops” (houses) to capture their market. Rolesville’s 2016 population of 6,500 with hundreds of new homes under development is sure to attract new businesses. And Rolesville has plentiful land available for commercial development as well as some vacant existing space.
