ROCKY MOUNT — An economic development veteran has been hired to serve as director of Rocky Mount's newly created department of Community and Business Development.

Landis Faulcon began her job last week with an annual salary of $120,000.

City Manager Rochelle Small-Toney said she is excited to have Faulcon lead the new department.

“With such a vast knowledge and years of experience in this field, I believe she is the right person to lead the city on devising strategies to support long-term home ownership, housing revitalization, economic development opportunities, downtown revitalization, neighborhood improvements and training that will ultimately enhance our quality of life and make Rocky Mount a more desirable place to live, work and play.”

Voted into existence in November by the City Council, the new department’s mission is to enhance the quality of life for Rocky Mount’s residents by focusing on key areas including revitalizing targeted neighborhoods to provide more accessible, safe, healthy and affordable housing; creating a sustainable economy with a focus on local, minority- and women-owned businesses; and building collaborative networks to provide necessary training for workforce development.

Faulcon has more than 25 years of experience working for local governments managing revitalization efforts and economic development initiatives. During her most recent tenure as director of economic development for the city of Petersburg, Va., Faulcon established the city's first state-designated tourism zone while submitting successful applications for a $600,000 Industrial Revitalization Fund award, a $350,000 Brownfield Redevelopment award and Main Street Affiliate designation.

In Charles County, Md., Faulcon was responsible for leading the multifaceted revitalization of a 350-acre commercial site with plans for mixed-use and transit-oriented development.

Also in the Virginia cities of Norfolk and Portsmouth, Faulcon served as executive director of a Federal Empowerment Zone, an economically distressed community needing assistance in creating business opportunities and jobs.

Faulcon has a bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism from Howard University, a master’s degree in urban studies and a doctorate degree in urban services management from Old Dominion University in Virginia.
