Coming from a person who lived in Cary for over 6 years, it would definitely be a great idea for Cary to merge w/ Morrisville. However, Cary and South Durham....not going to happen! But I am not against the idea.

I have lived in Morrisville for close to 10 years now and in Cary for 3 years before that. Given the fact that there is no real boundary between them (the lines zig zag all over and all roads go thorugh both towns pretty much) it makes a ton of sense to me that they merge.

Maybe if there was a clear separation between them it would not work, but Morrisville police, fire and public works people drive over cary roads to get to town assets all the time and vice versa. The water and sewer systems are already combined and we have to pay more because of it than Cary residents. The roads are all mostly DOT maintained, but anything done in Morrisville afects Cary and anything done on that side of Cary affects Morrisville.

In fact, IMO, if there is a textbook case of two towns that should combine it is Cary and Morrisville, which of course means, it will never happen.
