Does anyone in the Charlotte area live in a town/area that has a controlled growth plan? What I'm trying to find out is which municipalities actually have a plan looking into the future? Since we are planning to move to the area, I think it's important to look into towns that aren't neccessarily interested in becoming the next big metropolis, but ones that have growth management in place to stop overexpansion. We live in a town in New Jersey that had some very lovely areas. Some newer construction mixed in with older homes. Then some developers came with big wallets and even bigger plans to build. Now it seems that our town is being overrun with new construction. After enough people complained about it, some politicians promised a new controlled growth plan. (Probably a lot of lip service just to get elected.) The new plan is now being implemented. However, it seems as though the developers just keep coming... What a shame!

If I'm not mistaken, Davidson (a suburb north of Charlotte) is like that. It's a beautiful, little college town and has tried to keep growth at a reasonilbe pace. It's the best example I know of.
