I'm not sure if you've made your decision with regards to which area you are moving to as I found this on a google search accidently.

I just cant see the "higher quality of life" in Union County compared to Gaston County. Union has a burgeoning infrastructure problem that is going to severely impede quality of life in the next 20-30 years there. Gaston County is clearly a better choice than Union.

Do some searches for schools/scores, etc.....

Then drive through the areas first and see what you prefer.

I am not going to debate what personal preferences will be.....but we live in Union County and are very happy with it.

Check out the schools in Indian trail especially the Porter ridge campus that house all the schools, the elem, middle and high. We sat with the Dean of Guidance at Porter High and I was impressed with how he spoke not only to us but to our daughter who starts HS in the new term. We definitly want this school for her.

We love it here in Union County. I can't say much about Gaston County, since I'm not familiar with the area. Good schools were our driving force when we chose Union County.
Good Luck to you!

Default Union county now 15th fastest growing county!

With this statement, it could mean good or bad, I think it means good.

Union county now 15th fastest growing county in COUNTRY!

With that comes expansion/growth problems. I choose to live thru them and help build a community.
