The latest census bureau forecasts have been released, and NC is expected to grow 52% by the year 2030. This will make NC the 7th largest state, surpassing OH, MI, NJ, and GA.
More specifically, Wake County is expected to gain 700,000 additional residents during this time and has already added 91,654 residents since 2000 (including the Rogans)!
What does all this mean? It means that we need to move ahead with adequate infrastructure planning NOW!
It is disappointing that I have not heard from either of my local DOT representatives, who I emailed over two weeks ago with my concerns. Apparently, being a “representative” requires you to ignore those you are supposed to represent?
