Welcome to the Town of Pollocksville, a quiet little town of 325 located in the northeast portion of Jones County in North Carolina. U.S. Highway 17 runs through the town and provides fast transport to the north and south portions of the State. For the most part, this area is devoted to farming where the ground is very fertile and most everything grows. A large portion of the acreage has been set aside for industry which has been growing for the past years. Tobacco was a major crop but has been substantially reduced in recent years due to loss of demand. Tobacco provided the major portion of taxes. Many tobacco farmers have turned to the growing of cotton.
The Town Hall is located on the banks of the Trent River on Highway 17. Newly installed walkways provide an ideal location for fishing.
Resilience Building Efforts
To better prepare Pollocksville against any future flood damages, The Coastal Dynamics Design Lab (CDDL) has begun collaborating with the Town of Pollocksville. CDDL operates from within NC State University’s College of Design to create innovative solutions for sustainability by bringing scientists, engineers, graphic designers, environmental planners, and architects together on projects to with Pollocksville citizens.
Over the next year, they will be seeking ideas and feedback from our citizens beginning with a survey sent out with our utility bills. The same survey is available online at https://forms.gle/BXFQamuF5A2cSosX6 until September 15th. We hope you get involved this time and next time!
Check out more about CDDL by visiting https://www.coastaldynamicsdesignlab.com/ or by following them on social media at @ncsucoastaldynamics
