Message from the Mayor
Welcome to Ronda, a small town with big possibilities!
We are nestled in the middle of northwestern North Carolina in the Yadkin Valley at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains, just 15 minutes to Wilkesboro and North Wilkesboro, ten minutes to Elkin and Jonesville, 45 minutes to Winston Salem, an hour to Greensboro’s airport, 30 minutes to Statesville and an hour and 15 minutes to Charlotte and its airport. We have easy access to the interstate-quality highway NC 421 and interstate 77, two great regional airports, a rail line and the Yadkin River which flows on our southern border.
Ronda boasts several local industries specializing in textiles, custom machined metalwork and industrial fibers used in a multitude of applications including erosion control and insulation. We have extensive water service provided by two deep wells in Ronda and by an interconnect with the town of Elkin which not only supplies water to Ronda, but to a large, extended area in eastern Wilkes county. We also have plans to extend the service to industrial areas of Roaring River to our west. Our utility services include sewer provided by the Yadkin Valley Sewer Authority, a cooperative entity formed between the towns of Elkin, Jonesville and Ronda. Ronda is people and business friendly. Our tax rate has not changed in more than a decade due to the diligent governance that preceded me which we continue today. Oh, and we have flat land available for development in our area too!
Are you looking for recreation? The Yadkin River is at our doorstep with access via our boat ramp at the Ronda Memorial Park, which has a large picnic shelter and other amenities. Stone Mountain State Park, Kerr Scott Lake and the Blue Ridge Parkway are just minutes away as are several vineyards (we are in the heart of Yadkin Valley wine country.) Merlefest, Shine to Wine, Winefest, Brushy Mountain Fest, Pumpkin Fest are just some of the festivals near us. Several farmers markets, great restaurants and music venues surround us. Ronda is in the middle of it all.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us.
Mayor Victor Varela
