My daughter asked a few weeks ago when passing a new housing development being built if all the trees in Concord would be distroyed to make room for more houses. She then asked if we really need all of these houses. A child can see that this isn't right. I live off of poplar tent and there are certain times of the day that we don't even try to go out. We have to wait for the traffic to eventually die down.

Poplar tent is clogged and roads are single lane. This is not a good state we are in.
It will make lives difficult for office and school goers with more families getting added to the already clogged roads.

The roads and people driving on them need to be addressed before we add more people to them

Concord, Kannapolis and the county are out of control. They're all only interested in how many tax dollars they can get and the hell with the infrastructure. Honestly, we don't need any more people moving here. Concord wants to be like Charlotte. Be careful, you just may get your wish!

Another thing to bear in mind in this scenario is that our state cannot now legally require developers to pay impact fees for infrastructure improvements.
This means the cost of any road improvements, drainage and water requirements, additional schools, etc. must be borne by the community itself. The community gets extra taxes however, we must place that on the balance of what it must pay “out-of-pocket”.
The ability to charge impact fees was made illegal in 2016 by the NC State Supreme Court so the lesson here is be careful whom you vote for!

Cabarrus co officials have allowed complete devastation to our forests, creeks and rocky river.
They are allowing acres of solar fields, with no research as to the effects on environment , desecration of our wet lands! Stop the greed
