Cary is growing and growing smart. Dedicated planning, with the needed budgets, means we’re structured to expand strategically and without jeopardizing our quality-of-life standards.


Starting in 2012, the Town of Cary has budgeted more than $400 million in infrastructure projects focused on maintaining Cary’s quality of life.

$500 million invested in infrastructure projects

  • Transportation ($159M)
  • Parks, recreation & cultural resources ($101M)
  • Fire stations ($10.5M)
  • Sewer ($87M)
  • Water ($135M)

Three billion dollars of private funds have been invested in residential and commercial construction and equipment in only five years.

Technology is also an important part of the infrastructure investment. From robust broadband servers to support for satellite uplinks, nearly all of Cary’s citizens (97 percent) have access to the internet at home or at work — about twice the national average.
