Cary, NC, is well known as a town with expensive housing and some lack of affordable homes.This results from a very desirable location and a very high economic demographic. Advanced degrees are a common denominator in Cary.
Cary has an Affordable Housing Initiative in place to encourage offering of affordable homes to Cary residents. It is noteworthy that many town employees and other service industry employees are commonly unable to afford a home in Cary.
On October 31, 2009, Cary residents are invited to sit in on a Wake County Affordable Housing Project design workshop, which will be held at the Page-Walker Arts and History Center, 119 Ambassador Loop, Cary, NC 27513.
It should be interesting, with graduate students from NC State’s School of Architecture holding forth.
