Having worked in the Apex area,
including New Hill, for the last 25 years we have encountered
many problems and significant changes.
First was the construction of the Shearon Harris Nuclear Power
plant, now owned by Progress Energy. Most people did not
want to live within 5 miles of the facility. However,
today there are many upscale homes and 10-100 acre horse farms
in the area. Over the years land has appreciated from
an average of $1,000/acre to today prices of $25,000/acre.
Now residents of New Hill are fighting
the future location of the regional wastewater plant for Cary,
Apex, Morrisville and Holly Springs. Residents feel like
the Town of Cary is forcing this on them, when it's actually
the State of North Carolina. Additionally, these same
towns have been pulling drinking water out of the Cape Fear
basin and discharging it back into the Neuse River basin. The
State has given the towns until 2010 to begin returning water
to the Cape Fear Basin. These changes are fueling major
growth for real estate developers and, as a result, New Hill
will be the location of major sprawl and commercial growth.
What makes New Hill so attractive
to residents, developers, builders and commerce is it's convenient
location. It's a prime location for residents commuting
to Raleigh or Research Triangle Park. There's some really beautiful
land choices and it's become ideal for the shear convenience
of shorter commutes. With New Hill between the future I-540
loop, US 1, US 64, NC 751 connecting to I-40 and being only
minutes from Jordan Lake this wonderful town will fast become
Wake County's hot commodity.
Also by the year 2010 the Wester
Loop of I-540 will be under construction within 5 miles of New
Hill. However, as has always been the case, those waiting to
purchase will have to contend with steep prices due to increased
demand. The fact is, now is the time to buy.
In a nutshell.....
MASSIVE GROWTH OF ALL KINDS IS INEVITABLE!
