To the editor:

While it is always great to see a town prosper, the recent rezoning and land for sale signs up all over Mocksville saddens me.

We moved to the small town of Mooresville in 1992. When Hwy. 150 went from 2 lanes to 5 lanes and all the construction went wild, a new town was created, no longer small or rural. No longer a quiet place to relax.

So 15 years ago, we moved to Mocksville.

We like the small town feel, knowing our neighbors, and belonging to a small church. We like how a person can drive 20 minutes in any direction and get to another city. We don’t do it much, but the possibility is there.

If Mocksville added a few more restaurants and a few more stores, we wouldn’t even bother.

It looks like Mocksville may be going the way of Mooresville, where instead of getting somewhere in 5-10  minutes it’ll take 20-30.

Sadly, In the next few years, it may be time to move again.
