What happens when you move into a sprawling area of Raleigh? You get a big go-cart track built right next to you:
Residents said they moved into the neighborhood because of the peace and quiet. However, they say that changed about a year ago when Frankie's Fun Park opened off Alexander Drive. Homeowners claim the sound from the go-karts and the loudspeakers can be heard well into the night.
I am sure that the homeowners complaining thought that the woods next to their newly leveled and developed areas were going to stay clear forever, but they learned the hard way that if the developer who tore down the woods formally covering their lots, there is nothing preventing another developer from the same to the lot next to you.
I lived in Brier Creek and my wife really liked the area; I am not singling the area out. This is happening everywhere in the state. The only hope that I have from these experiences is that it will make people more willing to accept property restrictions to create and keep good places to live.
