This is not a good sign people...now we are seeing established businesses picking up and moving out of the "Historic Downtown" area of Waxhaw for Cureton. With Prescot Village not far off...we're going to continue to see this kind of business flight unless our new Mayor & Board Members put a future plan on the agenda PRONTO!
SEEN IT ALL

Anyone hear about Big Dog Cafe, Summerfield's, and Ice Cream & Pizza Works being torn down and a new development built on the property to include housing as well as retail? This is to include approximately 14 acres which goes behind these businesses as well. Sounds a lot like what is going in Prescot too. Does Waxhaw really need all these shopping centers in a row?(Cureton, Prescot, and this one?)

Hurry Karen you can't allow any development in your area. You & your special interest groups know "what kind of people that will bring". The lords of the west must put a stop to all development or the next thing you know poor people will be moving there. The lords will not stop till all development in Union County is under their control.

Why don't you just stop it, Kirtg!! You are really mean!! What you are not getting is these businesses are already established businesses that have been here for years! Why tear down something that is thriving just to build new? I am sure the existing businesses will not be able to afford to go back into the area they are being forced out of. I AM NOT, LET ME REPEAT, I AM NOT AGAINST DEVELOPMENT!!! I just think it should be smart development. Just to tear down buildings and put businesses out of commission is not smart development. All three of the businesses mentioned above are well-established and respected businesses and they are fine the way they are.

Wow! I am a minority I can't believe what I'm reading. I never thought that racism still exist in the south but it still does. I moved here from up north and I own my home with hard earn money. I think that anyone who works hard for there money and want to give there chidren a better life should do so it dosen't matter what color of their skin is as long as their respectable citizens. I live in Union County and I think they should build as much as they could to make this a better community and get rid of all the racist people in this community maybe it would be better I left a $85,000 job in New York to live on a income of $45,000 I reuse people like you run me away I deserved to live here just like everyone else so I welcome all miniorities with money to enjoy the rest of their life and live at ease.

I agree with Well! What happened kirtg, did you miss school when they were teaching southern hospitality? I have never met anyone quite as unfriendly as you are toward new people who moved here from WHEREVER!
