A MESSAGE FROM KARL THOR
Friends and neighbors,
Don’t let someone else plan your family’s future!
Sign up to participate in the “Summit on Cary’s Future” on May 2, 2013 (www.imaginecary.org/) and encourage all your friends and neighbors to sign up!
This meeting is your opportunity to set the broad agenda for Cary’s future growth. Once the direction is set, it will be difficult to change course. If you don’t strongly voice your opinion regarding the future of Cary at this time, others will!
Cary has initiated an extensive two-year planning process to determine the “Future of Cary” across the next 20 to 30 years. The plan "will set forth the long-range vision for development, transportation, housing, environment, economic development, and related topics.” Input is allowed from anyone, even those who do not live here and including those who might have a self-vested financial interest to influence “Cary’s Future”.
The keynote speaker for the “Summit on Cary’s Future” is Chris Leinberger. According to his resume, Mr. Leinberger is a "land use strategist and developer" who supports "new urbanism" and whose stated mission is “…formulating and implementing the next American Dream.” (See his website at http://chrisleinberger.com/
Personally, I do not want a developer “formulating my dreams”. My dreams focus on Cary's small town environment. Raleigh and Durham can provide the “urban environment”.
Cary Town Council have indicated that they want maximum citizen input, so an “Outreach Committee” has been formed, of which I am a member. Hence, I am “reaching out” to you. I absolutely prefer having friends and neighbors who live in Cary "inspire thoughts about future possibilities" rather than outsiders.
Please forward this email to your Cary friends and neighbors and strongly voice you opinions about the Future of Cary! If you would like to help “spread the word”, please let me know.
Thank you for your consideration!
