The City of Reidsville … Living Simply But Thinking Big!
The City of Reidsville with a workforce of 193 full-time employees prides itself on the quality of services it provides its citizens. Established in 1873, the City is led by the seven-member Reidsville City Council, which establishes Reidsville’s policies and directions, while City Manager Preston Mitchell and his Management Team direct the day-to-day operations of this 2008 “All-America City”. Our employees work hard to guarantee Reidsville residents receive quality services, including police, fire, road construction and maintenance, water and sewer. But the City provides much more, especially when it comes to quality of life issues. The City has a strong recreation program that offers athletics, including football, baseball, softball and basketball, as well as amenities such as 750-acre Lake Reidsville featuring camping, fishing, skiing, boating and disc golf and the more rustic Lake Hunt. Other amenities include the historic City-owned Penn House ideal for weddings, meetings and other events; Market Square, a downtown venue used for our local Farmer’s Market, free concerts and events; a network of greenways throughout the City as well as walking tours for the downtown area and Historic Districts; and a strong system of neighborhood parks and ball fields. Reidsville’s downtown area attracts a variety of businesses and is home to monthly vintage car cruise-ins in April through October and the City’s fall jubilee the third Saturday in October. A state-of-the-art Senior Center under construction will be completed this fall. The City also is the site of one of the State’s premier industrial parks with 400 acres located on NC Highway 87. As the City looks to grow but keep its small town appeal, we mirror our motto, “Live Simply. Think Big!”
