Pittsboro, NC - I have been silent for several months in regard to the ongoing Chatham Park debate but find it impossible as a Chatham homeowner to be silent.
I will start by echoing the sentiments of several others - I, like many others, chose to live in Pittsboro because it isn't Cary. The quesiton I keep asking myself is why would anyone move or stay in Pittsboro with the intent of terraforming it into a congested, cookie cutter world when you can easily just move to one that already exists.
There is an old saying that if you want to know what is driving something, just follow the money. It is obvious that those with the most to financially gain are working the hardest to discredit Pittsboro matters and misinform/downplay the facts and impact of Chatham Park.
Everyone from top to bottom that supports Chatham Park is thinking with their wallets, period. Whether it is the millions Preston will gain, the false potential for "new jobs", or the hope of customers to a flailing resturaunt with sub-par italian food.
My guess is it is probably a losing battle, once people with deep pockets want something enough, they buy the people and the system to make it happen. However, through all of this I am yet to meet a single, solitary individual in support that isn't thinking of their own financial gain.
