    Catman, I live near BC (bought my house before BC was built), and while I do not have chickens wander into my yard, I do have rabbits and deer. :-) Last Friday, I saw one of the neighbor's cats playing chase with a young buck. Very cute!

    This is why I live in a nice quiet place in a rural area of JOCO. I hate when I have to come into that area of Raleigh too much traffic and parking spaces are hard to find most of the time. It may take me 40 mins to get to work. but all you who live in the BC area how many of you can say you have a hen come into your yard everyday of a rabbit or a deer. You can have the urban sprawl.

    Heaven forbid a little green space is left around Briar Creek.

    I wish they would extend ACC BLVD across the 540 to Westgate to make it easier to get to and from the Brier Creek area.

    Solely your opinion on how you see things and interpret reality. I have my opinion which is no less valid than yours. Who died and made you the opinion's sheriff?

    s.wake.co

    Opinion plays no part in it. It's a FACT that there were dozens and dozens fewer shopping centers in the 40's. So, your comparison of then and now on this topic doesn't hold water.

  • pooodaddy Jun 6, 12:51 p.m.

    I just hope they make the parking lots easier to navigate than the current one. They are a mess!

    I am one who is tired of chain restaurants, stores, strip malls and new housing developments on every patch of grass the developers can find to build on. Raleigh has been my home for just about my entire life and I have grown weary of congestion and crowds everywhere I go. The planners, Wake County Board of Commissioners and the Raleigh City Council will continue to spread sprawl as long as their pockets are filled with cash from these projects. Cash comes before quality of life in Wake County now and I predict that future generations will rue the decisions that are being made now. I am leaving Wake County for greener and more tranquil surroundings in the near future and I don't think I'll be the only one to make this decision. The powers that be can live with the Frankenstein that they are creating.

    I've lived in the Bethesda area (near Brier Creek) since the early 90s. The B.C. development has been the greatest thing that has come along in those 20 years. More please, faster please!

    It seems to me that if these environmentalist protestors were around back in the late 40s, there would be no Cameron Village today.

    There isn't any problems with expansion as long as the parking lots are big enough to accomodate the crowd and is walkable from store to store.

  • abbynork Jun 6, 8:45 a.m.

    More crime, too, right?

  • Fuquayone Jun 6, 8:44 a.m.

    First they need to repair Arco Corporate Drive. The road has more bumps and dips than a dirt road. Does not match its "Class A-" office space.

  • FlySwater Jun 6, 8:36 a.m.

    It is true that Brier Creek has a lot of franchise business, BUT, it has a lot of specialty franchises that could not survive in less prosperous areas.

  • LuvLivingInCary Jun 6, 8:24 a.m.

    brier creek is more generic than cary ever thought about being...try to find one local store...yes local means mom and pop that is unique...ALL FRANCHISES....they just rolled out the postage stamp application.

  • wvusam Jun 6, 8:06 a.m.

    Brier Creek is a travesty. All chain cookie cutter businesses, choking typical suburban traffic design, and very unfriendly to pedestrians. I moved to downtown Raleigh 4 years ago and cannot stand to go to the suburbs any more. If you like sitting in your car, by all means go to Brier Creek. If you want to walk and enjoy yourself, come downtown.

  • teammugs Jun 5, 7:53 p.m.

    yes add to the congestion so that 70 is worse than ever...typical - build 1st then worry about infrastructure, and make sure you give them a tax break too...

  • boneymaroney13 Jun 5, 6:15 p.m.

    Haaaaaa! This is so funny. No one wants to build on the east side of Durham - but Raleigh will!
    Bring it on! I feel safer in Raleigh's shopping areas than I do Durham's anyday!!!

  • atheistswillserveinhell Jun 5, 6:14 p.m.

    nuts!!!!! stop the madness

  • NCBBQ Jun 5, 5:41 p.m.

    This will be a mess. There is already a lack of parking, the intersection at Glenwood and BC Pkwy (as noted below) is maxed out, and the intersection at BC Pkwy and Lumley is accident prone. Where will the kids go to school??

  • SteelThis Jun 5, 5:03 p.m.

    Mon Account - LOL

  • whatelseisnew Jun 5, 4:45 p.m.

    Oh well, if they make this a nightmare as they did down in Crabtree valley, it will just be another location I will avoid.

  • Mon Account Jun 5, 4:41 p.m.

    Brier Creek Parkway and Glenwood Avenue need a traffic circle! j/k
