Too much growth hurts wildlife

The problem of too much growth has become a community-wide issue. The citizens of Cary should be upset by the number of homes being produced every year that takes away our wildlife and beautiful environment.

Our tax dollars are being wasted on unnecessary projects, such as the renovation of The Cary theater for $6.2 million.

The citizens of our community need to be informed of the amount of over-growth that occurs each year and be a part of the solution. We all need to voice our concerns to town leaders in order to destroy the problem before it destroys all the wildlife.
