Courtesy of our friends at North Carolina’s premier news network, News 14 Carolina, we have two separate stories that deal with land acquisition…in preparation for future growth.

1. Wake County Public Schools…and credit this to the Wake County village of Cary, where  village council leaders voted last week to set aside $23 million for future land use, more than likely to be used for school construction. Town leaders estimate they will need as many as six new schools within the next 15-20 years, according to the News 14 report. Click here to read the story and watch the video.

2. Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools…our progressive friends just a few miles to the west of us are already putting their 2006 bond money to use…by acquiring land for future school construction. The system plans to build about $250 million worth of school buildings over the next few years and school leaders have already begun the process of bidding out proposed projects.
