Front Porch Realty attended Mayor John Byrne’s, “State of the Town” address last week held at Golden Corral. Mayor Byrne was excited to thank all in attendance for being such a vital part of making our growing town what it is. Fuquay-Varina boasts a strong economy and a financially sound government. He announced our 32% increase in single family housing construction permits and a new 50 acre shopping center off of NC Hwy 55 and Powell Road in Fuquay-Varina,. Mayor Byrne stated that the shopping center’s developer cited the presence of sidewalks throughout the community as a key factor influencing his choice to develop in Fuquay.
Mayor Byrne also talked about our town youth sports program and our recently celebrated Teen Day that drew more than 1000 teens (now that is an accomplishment!), and enthused about our town’s first dog park, sharing that the free, 8 acre park has stayed very busy entertaining doggies from Fuquay Varina and neighboring towns.
It was great to see the breakfast room filled with fellow business owners and chamber members. A big thanks goes to Golden Corral for opening its doors early with breakfast for us all and to Spring Arbor Assisted Living for sponsoring this F-V Chamber of Commerce event.
