Re: “Amazon Gives Raleigh a Rose, Sends Us to the Next Round of the HQ2 Reality Show

The Transit thing is going to be a problem- but we do have improved transit coming and the area is heavily invested in making that happen. The other cities on the list are already congested- Atlanta anyone- or rich on crime- Newark-really. And I never understand why anyone would want to relocate to Boston- expensive and REALLY congested... Housing is great here, land is cheap and plentiful- I think Raleigh -Durham - cary have an EXCELLENT chance at scoring this.

Re: “As elections near, the fate of downtown Cary hangs in the balance

Gave us short sited. Music lessons and preschools will not support downtown either. The folks I see that have kids in music classes at Cary School of music never spend a dime downtown. They stay in their cars or sit at the center because the lessons are only 45 mins not leaving enough time for parents to even do errands.
No, the way to a booming downtown is clearly MORE ROOFTOPS. Downtown is some of the LEAST DENSELY developed land in all of Cary. When more people live and work downtown the demographics will drive more retail development. Right now that is all happening in what has become central Cary ( Davis and High House) and to some extent west of 55. Downtown needs some folks to SELL and make way for high rise apartments!!!!!!

Re: “Why hyperlocal websites like New Raleigh can't make money online

I see you missed our site- CaryCitizen covering all things Cary. We started publishing July 2009. We created an annual event called the Cary Scavenger Hunt that each year has doubled participants and revenue. Our mission is to tell stories that connect the community. We're pretty significant and we posted numbers higher than all those you quoted.
Guess you think Cary is beige?
Our advertisers are very happy with our 1600 views per day plus email list twitter and facebook promotion. And we have been growing every year- On target for a great 2013!
