The voters of Raleigh and Cary spoke loud and clear yesterday that they favored a slow growth path for their respective cities. Yet, look what happens today…
INC Research, based in Wake County has been given $14.8 million in state incentives to add almost 1,100 workers to their existing workforce.
Well, where exactly do these city leaders think these 1,100 new workers and their families are going to live? I would bet a great many of them would like to live in Cary or Raleigh.
It seems rather contradictory to embrace incentives as a way to attract new businesses and jobs to an area at the same time you tell home builders that they can’t build new homes because growth is out of control.
Is this the new NIMBY-ism? Please come work and shop in our community, but please don’t live here, our schools and roads are overcrowded.
