Interesting Q&A session with the Mayor of Cary can be found here. Those wanting to know more about how the town operates may find it helpful. Here is one interesting Question and Answer from the session that busts a few myths about Cary:


"What is the logic behind people in Cary NOT being allowed to have a clothesline on their property? Isn't drying clothes outside much more environmentally friendly?" – Tina, Cary

Mayor's Answer:

"Tina, unfortunately this information is false and is just one of the “urban myths” about Cary. We do not regulate the use of clotheslines. My guess is that if this is a restriction for you, it is because of a deed restriction or a neighborhood covenant put in place by developers when they created your subdivision.

Other “urban myths” you might hear about Cary are that we control the color of homes – including the roofs, and we control the number of pets you can have. These are also false.

Good luck working with your neighborhood association in getting that clothesline."

Wouldn't that be suburban myths?

It isn't passing the buck if it's the truth.
