Comprehensive Plan

The Together Tomorrow: Tier I Smart Growth Comprehensive Plan, adopted in 2003, is the city's vision for the future of Rocky Mount. The plan defines the values and long-range goals for development and is a tool used to guide growth of the city.


A sub-plan, or small area plan, is a long-range plan with a focus on specific geographic areas of Rocky Mount that are expected to experience significant growth. Sub-plans offer customized solutions to issues that reflect the unique character within a focused area. Sub-plans are considered an extension of the comprehensive plan.

Transportation Planning

The Department of Public Works' Engineering Division oversees transportation studies, plans, and projects in Rocky Mount. Other plans and studies published prior to the adoption of the Together Tomorrow: Tier I Smart Growth Comprehensive Plan are available at the Department of Development Services for viewing in the office.
