You already do lose your section 8 voucher if convicted of a felony. If your spouse gets a felony, they have to leave. Anyone living in the house besides kids have to be on the lease. They cant have any felonys and they check every year. There are also strict rules on the landlords to keep a properly maintaned units.

I guess I missed where it said all the criminals in that area are in sec 8 housing.
I think its safer to go to that area than it is to be a housewife in Cary...

Ahh... well in that case, put EVERYONE on the lease. Not for financial purposes, but for legal ones. If anyone in that house gets convicted of a felony? The whole family loses the voucher.

I think that's reasonable enough.

Cary is techincally a "town." There's not one side that's really that much safer than others. There seem to be small pockets of "less safe," but really? There's just not much crime here.

Everyone that has moved here for the lure of West Cary seems to think it should have a gate around it or something. I disagree.


If you wanted gated, get rich.

meh_whatever is right - I live in West Cary and I'm as guilty as the next person of being lured into the thought that our little sleepy corner of Wake was immune to crime. Who would notice us over here, right? So, a few things happen here (granted they are big things!) and we get upset. You mean we're not immune?! The police chief herself said that NW Cary crime rates are really no different than other areas, but as long as we, the residents, perceive that we or our property are in danger, then that's a problem.

I feel bad for the Grove folks who thought they had moved away from it all (just like the rest of us in NW Cary), only to feel the let down of same old, same old.

Even with what has happened, I'm still love my neighborhood, this part of Wake County, and wouldn't trade.

NoneOfThis? It's alright... I tend to think that my little area of Cary is fairly immune as well. I think we all tend to do this with our neighborhoods. If we didn't think they'd be safe for ourselves and our families, we wouldn't buy in them, yanno?

I remember conversations about the pathways in Cary and crime. Any connection with current discussion?

What? Shocked by my rose-colored glasses approach to NW Cary (don't worry, I'm actually very cynical by nature) or my rather negative sounding username? I think I was a little on the frustrated side the day I joined CD.

And I typed town too, but erased it and said city instead... Oops ... Really sorry

And my username is cheerful?
