Cary is serious not just about growing, but growing smart. Dedicated planning, with budgets to back it up, means we’re geared to expand without jeopardizing our important lifestyle.

In recent years, the Town of Cary has budgeted nearly $500 million in infrastructure projects focused on maintaining Cary’s quality of life. The totals of the infrastructure project are broken down into: $159 million for transportation; $101 million for parks, recreation, and cultural resources; $10.5 million for fire stations; $87 million for sewer, and $135 million for water.

Additionally, we have invested in our technology infrastructure. From robust broadband servers to support for satellite uplinks, nearly all of Cary’s citizens have access to the Internet at home or at work — about twice the national average.


Whether traveling by road, rail or air, Cary is conveniently located midway along the Eastern seaboard, placing us within 700 miles of 170 million consumers and 65 of the nation's top 100 metro areas.
