Spring is in the Air…..

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

My husband’s grandma always said “Spring is sprung, the grass is ris, I wonder where the birdies is?”  I’m just wondering where Spring is!!  Regardless of the temperature outside, the calendar has told us Spring is here and the IRS is telling us taxes are due!

Two Milestones for Tryon Road at City Council

Monday, January 3rd, 2011

Tryon Road (SR 1009), between Lake Wheeler Road and US 70-401, is in desperate need of repair, widening, and realignment, to better serve the south west Raleigh community. In 2010 several groups in south west Raleigh have worked diligently in advocating for road updates, improvements and ultimately the realignment of Tryon Road and the replacement of Bridge 259. Advocates have been in front of the city council numerous times and several councilors and city staff have supported our efforts with a tremendous response to the needs in our community.
