Just fine the way it is
I attended the Summit on the Future and was very encouraged by the turnout. However, that is where my enthusiasm stopped.
Like a good engineering student I once was, I did my homework before I went. I was not surprised by what I saw and heard.
A little walkable here, a little sustainability there, a little diversity here. It is quite frightening what they are trying to impose at the local level.
Why the rush to change Cary? People are climbing over the fence to get into Cary. We have good roads, sidewalks, parks, low crime and a pretty darn good Town Council that listens to the folks and keeps property taxes in check.
Why the walkable urban stuff? Heck, right now I can walk to Harris Teeter, Food Lion, Walgreens, CVS and several nice restaurants.
I like Cary just the way she is. I dont want Cary to look like Arlington, Va., or Franklin, Tenn. I think we have done a pretty good job so far, thank you very much.
I was angered by Chris Leinbergers ending remarks, something to the effect: I have given you the information and now its up to you to do what you want with it, I really dont care.
Well, I do care, and so did the 700 people who showed up. We dont need any more government involvement in our business. Wake up, Cary: UN Agenda 21 and the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives have come to town.
