It is always interesting to see how different geographies within a city or county are so very different due to how people work, play, practice religion, exercise, value family, value financial success, etc.

As a northerner looking to move down here, our realtor didn't even *show* us houses ITB. hahahhaha!

of course, we were looking for acreage too...minimum one acre, which means you need to look OTB...but later, when we started exploring ITB, we chuckled a bit.

Yes, I'd re-categorize it North Raleigh and Raleigh. <smile>
Give us our own schools and governance. Of course, why not just make North Raleigh part of Wake Forest? And do the same for the east and west and southern portions - just make them part of the town closest to them. Raleigh would then become a real 'metro' area and maybe make public transportation actually work well??

I'd rather we not move to the Borough system. I like that Raleigh is just one big old land mass.

Splitting Raleigh into 2 cities would be a bad idea. Honestly, I wouldn't see the point in wasting time and money to do that.
