It would cross under the bridge near where Gilead hits McCoy and a small park and a little parking would be added there as well. They would also clean up that messy portion where the old Gilead runs.

On the same presentation, there was another one shown that had the greenway by Birkdale Village running all the way to Westmoreland, right by Hwy 21, and down to a school ( don't rememeber all those details).

This was all supposed to have been constructed by the summer of 2008. I guess the plans are on hold now since it never happened.

Huntersville wouldnt be my top choice. Anything due north of Charlotte is off-limits to me. The traffic, congestion, and home prices keep me at bay.

When people mention the downtown area of Huntersville is that on Gilead just east of 77?
Would the new rail line come through there..it looks like there are tracks but I havent seen a train yet.
We really like the neighborhoods back that way..Mirabella, Vermillion, Centennial

Mexicans.. so you call "Mexicans" (some people think they are all Mexicans but they aren't we also have alot of Nicaraguans, Hondurans & El Salvadorans) are the ones that want to do the work. They are hard working, and being that there is no work in their countries they come here to work to send to their families, they do not like living in the US but they go were the money is. AND I hate to tell you but they are HARD workers, and reliable. They aren't taking are jobs, it's just that they do not question a job.

Would you shovel **** for minimum wage? They would!

And no... I am not Mexican, Nicaraguan, Honduran or El Salvadoran.. neither.

I hate to tell you ... but it doesn't matter where you go... you will find these culture of people.

Oh.. I do not live in Huntersville, but it is a wonderful place to live, my family lives there.

I live in Huntersville (have for the past 5 yrs) and LOVE it! I live on the western side which is not as built up or congested with traffic and shopping areas. Still have cows, horses and lots of parks, open green spaces, and it's been wonderful. The only thing I caution anyone who moves down to this area, be careful biking or jogging on the main roads (Bud Henderson, Gilead, Sam Furr, Beatties Ford, etc.). We don't have the street lights that are common in NYS, nor do we have all the sidewalks, etc., so it's really dark on these roads at night, and that can't be stressed enough. Jog in the neighborhoods, in the parks, and where it's safe! Other than that, I love this area and will be here the rest of my life (husband and I retired here).

That area of Huntersville is lovely and those are beautiful neighborhoods (especially Vermillion). However, don't hold your breath for the commuter/subway line to be put in. That will be years and years down the road. There's decent bus transportation downtown (I used it for a couple of years when necessary). The express bus takes only 20 mins on I-77 into the
Charlotte, and about 40 mins on the way back to Huntersville in afternoon traffic. Not bad at all. If you live on the western side of Huntersville, you can take Beatties Ford Rd. straight uptown (becomes Trade St. which goes right through the center of the City). Hope this helps.
