Knightdale Has Become the Fastest Growing City in NC

Fastest-Growing-City-in-NC- Knightdale NC Station

The town of Knightdale came in as the third Fastest Growing City in NC last year (2018). This would seem to leave little room for improvement upon the release of the 2019 numbers considering the consistent growth of many other NC municipalities. That coupled with the vast growth a town sees in ranking as high as number three, didn’t seem that it would give Knightdale a chance to move up. However, last month when these numbers were made public, it did show improvement for Knightdale. Thus, the town is listed for 2019 as the number one Fastest Growing City in NC.

Knightdale Mayor, James Roberson (pictured) spoke with Wake Weekly about the town being teh Fastest Growing City in NC.

How to Go From a “Small Town” to the Fastest Growing City in NC

Although some of the newer relocators to Knightdale would not recall, it was not too long ago when the town boasted under a thousand people as residents. Long-time residents, however, such as Mayor James Roberson certainly recall those days and have watched as the “small town” continued to grow.

In an article for the newspaper, “Wake Weekly,” they spoke with the current Knightdale Mayor. Specifically, he addressed the town being the Fastest Growing City in NC. In the Wake Weekly piece, Roberson recalls moving to Knightdale 25 years ago and the population at the time being at 980 people. He also gave his outlook on where he sees the town’s growth moving forward, taking into account the 980 figure against the most recently released 17,400 population of the town on July 1, 2018.

Where Does a Town Go From Being the “Fastest Growing?”

As for where Mayor Roberson sees the town heading moving forward, he is optimistic that continued growth will be steady.

“I can see Knightdale in the next 15 and 20 years being one of these municipalities of 30,000 or more people,” Roberson said.
“Thousands of people have considerably large needs, water and electricity, police and fire coverage, health care, restaurants, and functioning roads, to name a few.”

Knightdale’s mayor cited transportation projects making the town more accessible as a key factor in growth through the years.

How Did Knightdale Become the Popular Destination it Has?

Roberson continued, giving his explanation as to what has changed to allow Knightdale such growth without much inconvenience.

“You no longer have to drive 25 minutes to see a doctor,” Roberson said. “You have it right here.” He added, “The cost of living is also lower than in Raleigh, and as other suburbs fill up, Knightdale is able to offer new construction homes.”

The Mayor concluded that transportation has also changed which plays a role also. “Transportation projects like the Knightdale Bypass and the future Interstate 87 make living in Knightdale or Zebulon and working in Raleigh more feasible.”

Consequently, though, he does not feel all transportation issues are exactly where they need to be at present time. “Transportation projects have to include more than just larger roads. Knightdale needs pedestrian and bike paths and transit systems as well.”

Fastest-Growing-City-in-NC-Knightdale-Station

With the growth in town, events such as the “Fourth on First” have seen record crowds annually.

Who is to “thank” for Knightdale becoming the Fastest Growing City in NC?

In this Wake Weekly article by reporter, Shawn Taylor, it speaks of several Eastern Wake County towns. Specifically, Taylor discusses these towns pointing to initiatives of their own to explain the growth. “The towns themselves are also quick to cite their own economic development initiatives for the spur in growth, ” Taylor relayed.

Whereas, true to the reporters’ explanation, Mayor Roberson did cite the vision of expansion from the town in leading to more residents. “By courting apartment homes, restaurant chains, and doctor offices,” he said. “Knightdale has pulled in new residents looking to start a business or raise a family. ”

Exactly How Much Growth Placed Knightdale on “Top of the Heap?”

In just one year, Knightdale saw a ten percent overall population increase between 2017 and 2018. In that same time frame, according to the Census numbers, Knightdale added about 6,000 residents.

Looking ahead to the future, the census numbers would support the earlier sentiments of Mr. Roberson as in the coming years it is estimated that tens of thousands more will “head into town.”

More Growth in Town Equals More Great Stuff…at the Station

With optimism shown by Mayor Roberson and the title of Fastest Growing Cities in NC continued growth seems imminent.

Having the moniker of being Knightdale’s First Master-Planned community, Knightdale Station is the town’s premier new home community.

The popular food truck events at Knightdale Station Park will be combined with a movie n the park at First Friday Films

That’s right, of all Knightdale Family Events, none may scream “Summer” like an outdoor movie night. So, after an absence, the Knightdale Parks and Recreation Department brings you “First Friday Films”

Each of these special Knightdale Family Events will take place on the first Friday of the month. (Hence the name…) There will be fun activities for the kids at the park on these nights starting at 7:30 pm. Each of the movies will start at dusk when the “big screen” goes up. It is encouraged to bring your own chairs and blankets.

The following will be the schedule of movie showings for summer 2019. Each is a Friday evening and all showings are at Knightdale Station Park Amphitheatre.

Adding a “delicious” spin to the events will be a variety of food trucks. The Redneck BBQ Lab (pictured) will be at “First Friday Films” on May 3

A “Tasty Twist” to a Movie in the Park

In addition to enjoying a movie in the park with the family, “First Friday Films” adds another Knightdale Station staple to this summer’s Knightdale Family Events. That staple is the always popular food trucks that will be on hand at each “First Friday.”

In the past few years, the “Food Truck Thursdays” events have become an incredibly popular event. Thus, the pairing here is natural and there will be different trucks each month.

The lineup of Food Trucks at Knightdale Station Park for “First Friday Films” is below.

The safe and family friendly atmosphere at Knightdale Station is epitomized by events like these at the Park throughout the year. To see a full schedule of Knightdale Family Events, visit the official town website at knightdalenc.gov.
