LOL! But there actually is one, it's called 'Flat Rock Hill'. It's out by the Sage Valley Golf Club off of Bettis Academy Road.

Yeah, that Trolley Run place out by USCA is supposed to have a gated neighborhood too.

It is gated. It also has 5 other subdivisions with home prices for each neighborhood. The largest YMCA in the Southeast is being built inside of it and a lot of shops and a grocery store were planned...but held off after the economy falloff.

Wow, I did know about the YMCA, I didn't know it was going to be on such a large scale though!

I was wondering if you or anyone else knew about what was being built on Trolley Line Road near Trolley Run? The land being cleared is part of the area that is meant for the retail/commercial part of the Trolley Run development, it's right before you get to the houses on Trolley Line Road if you're going towards Graniteville. They've cleared off a decent sized chunk of land... If you look at the plan for Trolley Run, that land I'm talking about is the commercial property on the far left of the map: http://trolleyrunstation.com/masterplan.html (broken link)

Default I Live in North Augusta

I have lived in the Augusta/Aiken area for 25 years... We are a 33 year old couple.... Here is our opinion: We LOVE living in North Augusta because we are literally right across the river from all the shops and restaurants in Augusta (Far superior than Aiken for a diversity of things to do) but we both commute to Aiken to work...

Aiken is an Old Southern town that has aged gracefully, and because of this it is inundated with upper class retirees and a huge horse/loving "ralph lauren-ish" eliteist type of society.... For a 30 something couple that is not into Mensa and Polo we find Aiken to be a little to staunch of a community (and the cops are a55holes

Especially coming from Detroit I think you would be MUCH happier closer to a more Metropolitan town like Augusta.... Ultimately you have to tell us what your hobbies are and what you like to do?? We like trendy new restraunts, and a great glass of Cabernet served by a cute waitress that has a sleeve of tattoos (you wont find that in Aiken --- its more of a Starched White Tablecloth in comparison) On the other hand if you like to watch Lobsters Race then then Aiken is the only place to see it !! (We like hanging out in Aiken occasssionally too !! About 4 times a year tops otherwise all our friends and favorite haunts are in Augusta....

LONG LIVE NORTH AUGUSTA !!! The Great MiddleGround of the CSRA !!

The main reason I decided to buy in North Augusta. North Augusta is close to every part of the CSRA. Coming from a large metropolitan city Detroit you'll want to be in Augusta.
