Now in 2022, a rail plan is again being discussed, with some significant changes.Commuter Rail Feasibility StudyAccording to GoTriangle, a new feasibility study is looking at servicing a larger geographic area with 43 miles of rail including Wake County (Raleigh), Durham, and fast-growing Johnston County including the town of Clayton, NC. The previous light rail project was 17 miles focused on Research Triangle Park (RTP), Chapel Hill, and downtown Durham. This commuter rail idea would help ease traffic for residents of outlying areas by decreasing car traffic on busy Triangle roads.Light Rail and Commuter Rail SystemsHere is ...

Over 55 Active Adult Retirement CommunitiesRaleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill - Triangle AreaMay 2021 Why are retirees choosing North Carolina for retirement? There are a variety of reasons. I often ask my clients what drew them to North Carolina. For many it is the moderate weather (very little snow), seasons, and lower taxes. Others come here for the variety of things to do, the universities, quality of healthcare, low crime, sports, natural beauty, and to be close to their kids and grandchildren. It is always interesting to hear why people chose this area. Personally, I love it here! Would it surprise you to know there are 40+ Active Adult communities in the Triangle area?  Del Webb: There are currently 4 Del Webb communities and a 5th Del Webb Community being built.
