My family and I are considering moving to the Cabarrus area for a new job. I'm due to come up sometime in the next week or so for a tour. I appreciate all opinions and thoughts on Concord & Kannapolis in regards to schools, new neighborhoods for young children and any other items you can think of.

In other words, what do you think about each area? Are they old & tired or growing?

Kannapolis Parkway area is all growing. Northwest Cabarrus has been the best school in the area for some time and will probably continue to be that way for some time (opinion), academically speaking.

Downtown Concord is old & tired.

Downtown Kannapolis, while having been old and tired for years, has buildings that are going up, North Carolina Research Campus - Home, but it will be a while before the full effects of this is felt. Everyone says its growing. Don't feel it yet.

Get slightly out of the city, especially the Kannapolis area and things are good. If you like rural lifestyle anyway

Harrisburg , on the border of Concord, has excellent schools also. A little closer to City than Kannapolis. Both areas are good, and both are growing in certain areas. Downtown Concord is trying a comeback but they are dragging their feet.
