Cary's new downtown park sort of has the same thing going, but yeah adding more activities and games and even outdoor fitness equipment would be cool for the city parks of Downtown Raleigh and Uptown Charlotte

Nice. Looks like Moore Square will have some of the same elements LeBauer Park in downtown Greensboro has like the splash zone, slide and restaurant kiosks.

It will be similar I think. I actually visited LeBauer park about a year ago. When I went to a concert at the coliseum. It was very nice. The bar/restaurant basically connected to the park added bonus. The city market is next to Moore Square should be a similar added bonus.

From 2010 to 2016 110,627 people choose to move to Charlotte.
From 2010 to 2017 54,988 people chose to move to Raleigh.

This does not mean that Charlotte is better than Raleigh, but it has a big job market in energy, finance, health care, manufacturing, entertainment.
Transportation

Comparing Charlotte and Raleigh is like trying to compare apples and oranges.
From now in upon comparing populations, at minimum count Raleigh and Cary as one. Durham city limits touch Raleighís also.

62 people move to Wake County every day, or 22,630 a year.

Mecklenburg is experiencing the same or more.

And although youíll disagree wholeheartedly, the stateís Transportation 2040 plan predicts that the Triangle will be the stateís most populous region with 3.2 million residents.

Itís portion of Charlotte region will have 2.8 or 2.9 million.

So SC counties will still keep Charlotte ahead.

And I looked at SCís I-77 upgrade and itís awesome, perhaps 2nd or 3rd best highway in all of Carolinas.

It is well known that Wake County will pass Mecklenburg's population at some time. Wake is a much bigger county.
What will not change is that Charlotte will always be bigger than Raleigh. Charlotte Metro is bigger than Raleigh Metro.
Why Raleigh and Durham are not in the same metro is a question only the US Census can answer.


Both Mecklenburg and Wake counties (Research Triangle) are carrying a large part of NC growth.


The Triad is the second most important part of the NC growth.

Simply adding Raleigh & Cary is also flawed at comparing.


Cary


Raleigh



Charlotte



By combining Raleigh & Cary, you’re cherry picking which areas to include. Everything west of I77 is nothing. The airport, lots of woods and a very little bit of development. Add all that white space before Cary. Charlotte is a larger city. Comes with the territory of being a metro dominated by 1 city

Its also pretty obvious Charlotte is bigger by looking at Meck vs. Wake. Wake is double the size of Meck but still less pop than Wake
