Bulldoze most of the downtown area except for the new townhall.

Interesting, I have lived in 4 of those towns in the last 5 years. I am a statstic.

As for Huntersville, more sidewalks and 485!

I'd have stayed in Hville if it hadn't been part of CMS.

I've been in Huntersville since the early 90s. It has grown a lot since those days. Other than lake front, I don't think there has been a huge run up in prices and building like there have been on other parts of the Charlotte area, thus the economic decline and thus fall in house prices doesn't seem as bad. The city had some growth restrictions that prevented a lot, but not all, of the bad building. It's the reason there are still a lot of cow on the edges of town. No question that it sucks to be selling right now, but it sucks less in Huntersville.

We did our homework and moved here for a reason, and remain very happy with our move after one year. But yes, it's not perfect. We see houses under construction and wonder who they think will buy, and shopping centers under construction and wonder how will new stores survive. There has been too much growth. If you drive around you see too many new subdivisions on former farmland that are a bit isolated, and much of the area is not terribly scenic. We were not around for the controversy surrounding the decision to build Discovery Place Kids, but now that they have started I think it could be a huge boon for Huntersville, especially the old downtown area.

Default Considering Huntersville

I have been told that Morrisville schools are "better" but I have seen nicer homes for sale in Huntersville. Is there that much of a difference in the 2 areas? I have 2 children that still have a couple of years to go before kindergarten.
