I went to the Harris Teeter out there today, and for the first time I did detect a faint odor that, as someone else mentioned, you could sort of taste.

The neighbordhoods around there are lovely, and clearly plenty of people want to live there. Humans get used to everything after awhile. My family lived very close to LaGuardia Airport--and I never heard the planes. There's folks that live near railroad tracks, and they will probably tell you they don't hear the train. We humans are an adaptable bunch!

SOSO.... TRUE. When I was selling my house and someone came to look at the house during rush hour they would walk in the back yard and ask how far I was from the LI expressway as they would hear the traffic. ME- Iheard nothing. So I obviously got use to the sound and never took the time to listen to it. But I have to say they were right-you could hear the traffic very faintly at certain times.

Default development

Well we finally checked out that development my parents were down and I have to say I did not tell them a thing about the problems with the smell. My dad toured the first model and then said to the sales agent "What is that smell?" So I guess some people can really smell it but the homes are nice I thought.

The real questuion is....what did the sales agent respond to your dads statement concerning the smell?

I am in lawson, my sister and sister in law are in Cureton. The only time I have smelled anything , and it was not good, was when we went from Harris Teeter into Cureton the back way through the shopping center. Once we were at the other end of the develipoment is seemed to get much better.

I was down there this weekend. My friends mother has a townhouse in Cureton. We spent 2 days there, walking around, by the pool, going to the new shopping center next door. I did not smell anything. I liked the community and the waterslide was a lot of fun.

Here is something else to consider with the issue of smell. Waxhaw/Marvin area is full of horses and cows. Anytime you have a very hot,humid day you are going to be able to smell more of the animal stuff. We were also at Cureton yesterday. There were 6 of us and no one smelled anything bad.

The interesting thing about that is that the townhouses literally back up to the plant. Some noses are sharper than others for sure. I never smelled it until last week for the first time, but I definitely do not consider myself to have a good nose. My hubby on the otherhand could take the spot of a blood hound on a police task force--very senstive nose and tells me how he always smells cureton. Go figure!

Default smell

The sales agent was pretty honest and said that it was due to the plant. I asked about how that was affecting home prices and she said yes it has but hopefully the plant gets fixed in the coming years.
