The Rowan Cabarrus Community College will make a new home in Kannapolis, which is north of Charlotte NC Real Estate. Rowan and Cabarrus Counties are both north of Charlotte, but they are home to many people who commute to the city. It is only about an hour to Salisbury, which is the county seat of Rowan County.
Many people have settled into Salisbury Real estate in order to commute to Charlotte, especially if they work downtown because of the ease of access to freeways. However, those are a rare breed, without traffic, it is about an hour and fifteen minute commute from Charlotte to Salisbury. Morning traffic can add to that.
Other commuters choose closer communites like Cornelius, Concord, and Davidson to commute from. Which are much closer and can offer more of the ammenities that come with living close to a city the size of Charlotte. They are close to the new Ikea store, Lowes Motor Speedway, and Lake Norman.
The new community college should help make education more easily accessable to more people in Charlotte's economic region. Charlotte's Central Piedmont community college already has a complex system of campuses to serve the needs of the Charlotte area. This new campus will extend that umbrella around the city.
