  1. That’s good. I need a pass compatible with the DMV (DC, MD, VA).

  3. Alamance County’s economic stability is near the highest it’s ever been. The county is within the top 26 most economically stable in North Carolina, according to the 2020 Development Tier Designations report from the N.C. Department of Commerce.... Burlington Economic Development Director Peter Bishop is positive about the report..... Alamance had the state’s sixth-highest population growth rate at 6.4 percent, and a notably lower unemployment rate at 3.9 percent. The median household income also increased by $1,854 from 2019 to 2020. These incorporated data points give Alamance its highest economic ranking since 2015, according to previous Development Tier Designation records. https://www.thetimesnews.com/news/20200110/economic-development-at-high-in-alamance-county
  4. I am so very impressed with how their IQ apartments have turned out. It’s enormity really has transformed that section of downtown.
  5. I think western Wilson is positioned by major growth next decade.
  6. The Washington Post’s big city treatment of Charlotte is largely a factor of it being a nearby regional neighbor. It seems every other person in the DMV has North Carolina connections. Geography matters. The Boston Globe, LA Times, and Miami Herald Dont treat Charlotte with the same type of familiarity as WaPo. Comment about how here in the Mid-Atlantic, people know Charlotte And Raleigh as a regional neighbor. But the concern is based on the fact the WaPo is an international paper with readers far beyond the MidAtlantic. 1 day ago AP used to have a rule about when you mentioned the state... Here in the mid-Atlantic, you might think everyone knows it's Charlotte North Carolina but someone in Oklahoma or Washington State may not make that assumption.

  8. A planned commercial development on the west side of town got approval Tuesday night to start turning dirt. Woodhaven Development Group is building more than 170,000 square feet of retail and restaurant spaces on 23 acres on the southwest side of the intersection of Airport Boulevard and Raleigh Road Parkway. Members of the planning and design review board had to decide the fate of the Heritage Corner Shopping Center Tuesday night and after a few questions, the project received the green light. “We’re really excited to be in Wilson,” said Adam Bickley, a partner at Woodhaven. “We believe in Wilson. We like the city, and we want to be a part of the continual push for growth in Wilson.” Traffic was among the concerns, but engineer Ron Sutton with Herring Sutton & Associates explained that a traffic impact study was conducted by the N.C. Department of Transportation to determine how to handle volume spurred by Heritage Corner as well as an adjacent housing development planned. Sutton explained that turn and extra lanes would be added with a traffic light on Airport Boulevard planned in the second phase of the commercial development. “We want the free flow of traffic during peak time periods on Airport Boulevard and Raleigh Road Parkway,” Sutton said. Janet Holland, Wilson land development manager, said connectivity within the developments — especially for pedestrians — was considered throughout the process. In addition to sidewalks around the property, there are crosswalks and walkways planned through the nearly 550 planned parking spaces. “The development will provide sidewalks as a means for a pedestrian network,” Bickley said. “We have worked closely with the residential component to create interconnectivity throughout the entire development, spanning through both the commercial and the residential areas, thereby increasing the developments walkability.” He added the look of the buildings will be similar to Heritage Crossing. http://wilsontimes.com/stories/heritage-corner-shopping-center-gets-ok,189321

  10. Nearly 500 high-end apartments received preliminary approval Tuesday and the project near Heritage Crossing heads to the city council for rezoning during the Aug. 15 meeting. "If this goes in the way the conceptual site plan looks, it is going to be a nice place," said Ralph Owens, member of the Wilson planning board. Janet Holland, Wilson land development manager, gave an overview of the project that includes 20 buildings of 24 units each constructed across 45 acres. Officials said the project would be done in three phases with the first part consisting of six three-story apartment buildings, a clubhouse and pool. "There will be sidewalks throughout providing connectivity from unit-to-unit as well as streets to connect to the adjacent property for access to additional residents, but also commercial properties for daily needs," Holland said. "This is one of those opportunities to reduce the use of vehicles with a pedestrian-friendly environment." City officials gave the go-ahead in March for the development of 250 homes and townhouses on an adjacent parcel between the Evolve at Heritage apartment project and Airport Boulevard. Both developments reportedly are expected to be higher-end construction with the price tag for homes and townhouses not expected to exceed $300,000 and Evolve expecting rents to range from $950 to $1,350 for one- to three-bedroom units. Mike Winstead Sr.'s son, Michael Jr., is the principal partner of Evolve and the elder said Thornberry Apartments is similar to what the new complex will offer, but with updated amenities. http://wilsontimes.com/stories/more-west-wilson-housing-planned,185805?
  11. Shared moped rentals are the next trend, a la Vietnam. They are debuting in DC right now.
