Cary Town Council heard the proposal for approximately an hour and 40 minutes.

The preliminary plan had the proposed Publix with a pharmacy drive thru. The updated plan removes the pharmacy drive thru. Retail space would be adjacent to Publix.

The existing Cary Park shopping center is a pain to navigate, adding competition will hopefully drive some of that traffic elsewhere. I appreciate the competition in the grocery store space. Maybe now, we will get a decent restaurant at which to dine (and I'll be able to walk to it).
Agree

Oh my. This is dangerous. I can't believe we'll have such delicious pastries within walking distance. At least I can force myself to walk there!

You sure you will be able to get to the store with your money still on you. I'm never able to walk anywhere near a retail establishment without being robbed by the criminals that frequent grocery store parking lots.

I watched the video recording of the meeting also, and there were definitely more Against than For on the rezoning for commercial. Of course, none of the residents of the connecting neighborhood wanted to rezone it for commercial.

Speaking on the crime complaint of many people at the meeting, I see Cary Police much more along Green Level Church Road now. I'm not sure if they are just catching speeders. They seem to be walking around the shopping areas and just "watching." Probably due to those complaints of people knocking on doors at 4am, breaking into cars, etc.

Having low crime is also what is selling these ridiculously prices homes to the people from the Northeast -it's in Cary's best interest to be on the low-crime list of towns.

If you are in favor of this development, let the Town Council know, before the fear-mongers (and their lawyers) get the upper hand.

With the Wake County school situation (e.g., Panther Creek HS and Mills Pond Middle School already have enrollment caps), the last thing we need is 200+ more residential housing units here.

This area was never going to remain green forever, and Cary is building a park across the street on Green Level Church Road and a mile south at Mills Pond Park.

Wouldn't it be nice if we got some nicer restaurants there, like Dean's, Lugano or Trvinina?
