Conyers is where the generation X's retreat not to be bothered. In all honesty it is beautiful and picturesque. Your kids have to go out-of-their-way to get into trouble here. There is an outstanding Rockdale Career Academy that's worth the $20 million necessary to build it. However, retention of people after they've graduated is lackluster. Conyers is a bit of sleepy town. Everything shuts down at 10pm. Transportation is coming but still in the initial phases. Conyers is an excellent place to raise your kids, but unemployment is still a thing. Nobody wants infrastructure development in their backyard. They want to maintain the peaceful environment that they moved to, even though quite a few apartments complexes have gone up since.Sidewalks are limited, so you would never guess this city was booming economically, and hotels were booked out Monday through Friday. Conyers Village is a very aesthetically pleasing shopping plaza that overlooks the interstate. It gets people to stop-on-by. The horse park is also a big draw for visitors. While the City has such amenities, many opt to reside in the outskirts in unincorporated Rockdale County, as many residents of Conyers, do no actually work in Conyers. Warehouse and manufacturing jobs do not pay the $15/hour they use to, so it proves to be quite unattractive labor with 10 hour shifts on one's feet and two 20 minute breaks. The manufacturing sector is the largest sector in the city, and most people would only participate in this sector as a last resort. This is how the unemployment issue persists, even though there "jobs," one would need two to make ends meet without a degree, and that's living on the low end.Rockdale and Conyers have yet to go electronic in their policing. The force is still old fashioned and gets a lot of revenue from traffic stops, when it could just install police cameras and speed tracking devices in all the key locations and relegate ticketing to code enforcement and dispatch. Both forces would save the city and county money, and reduce the expenditure of the taxpayer.
