Mecklenburg Isn't Alone
Mecklenburg County isn't alone when it comes to growth in the Charlotte area. Cabarrus County which is Charlotte's neighbor is also seeing a boom. Concord, a city known to many race fans as home to Lowe's Motor Speedway (formerly Charlotte Motor Speedway) is itself beginning to blossom. With more and more residential growth in the area, especially near the Mecklenburg County line, the amount of commercial development is increasing as well. Many people are interested in living close to the city of Charlotte but at the same time staying out of the city limits, giving them more of a suburban lifestyle. With this draw to suburbia comes the need for shops and services for the growing population.
