Jim will do everything that is currently planned. You don't work for/with him, nor do you have anything to do with HUD financing, so you do not know the ins and outs. So please stop insulting this man. It's getting old and tiresome. Concentrate on your pointless airport and leave everyone else alone.
As a former NY from Long Island, I would like to personally say thank you. My family was without power for a very long time, along with a lot of my friends. If it wasn't for companies like yours, they would still be without. I have lived in Moore County for the past 2 years and have met some of the nicest people in my entire life, my family and friends were very lucky to have such compassionate and hard working individuals like yourself!

RmeMP, you're 100% right!!!! And I think I've actually had a conversation with "Toda" about this before and he actually said (In other words because I can't remember them exactly but I'm sure he'll pull them up and quote me) that he's too good to flip burgers at McDonalds or check groceries. Hey, when I first got down here I put my tail between my legs and worked at Walmart. It paid the bills and held me over until I got a better job. They are still hiring by the way Toda.
I really do enjoy their food. I believe they have the best breakfast around. We will be going back, but maybe not during such busy hours. :)
I used to go to Mac's almost every weekend when I moved here. The food was horrible and the tables were sticky. We stuck it out for a few more visits hoping it would improve, but it didn't. So we decided to try the Mac's in Aberdeen. It was much cleaner, but still, the food was horrible. So then we tried the Track. We actually really liked the food there, but I don't enjoy eating while there's a line of people waiting to sit and they are staring at my food or hovering over my table. And then one day we show up for breakfast and there's a sign on the door that they are on vacation for like a month. We then tried Sizzling Steaks or Eggs. Again, food was pretty good, but when I go to pay my check and watch the waitress wipe the snot off her nose and then touch someone's toast, we decided to never go back. You want people to spend money instead of save it? Make it worth it!!!
For the record CSmithson, I have been to almost every meeting. The only one I didn't attend I was out of town for. I've stayed into the late hours with the others. In addition, I'm very familiar with the developer. And the way I look at it, you were the ONLY one to vote against it. There has to be a reason for that. I couldn't imagine the other 4 officials not being aware of your points, so obviously they find no merit behind them. And I do feel 22 is a main road. It may not be 15/501, but it's not a small road either. It has nursing homes, golf courses, parks, leads to an airport and a busy traffic circle, has numerous houses and a few small businesses. How does that not qualify as a main road?
I'm sure there are plenty of reasons residents have for not wanting to take away from the serenity of the community, but this is what I don't understand. Why decide to live near main roads? The way people are complaining about the noise and traffic, you all act like you live in the woods 50 miles from society. If you live near a main road, you would have to expect for the areas to grow. If you're looking for no noise, no traffic, no college kids, move to an area where none of that exisits. Like a back road far from main roads. Me personally, I'm looking forward to the county bringing in more jobs and revenue. And I really don't understand the big deal about the square footage. Seems like it would be a very easy thing to obtain. I'm sure the developer had a million requests to adhere to and that this will be taken care of. I was told the south had 'hospitality' and a welcoming attitude. Guess this Yankee heard wrong.
Congrats Jim!!! What great news!!!
