The Affordable Housing Plan, adopted by the Town Council on May 11, 2000, is a chapter in the Town's Comprehensive Plan that provides long-term guidance to future land use and development decisions. The Plan includes strategies and initiatives to achieve a higher proportion of housing accessible to Town employees such as police officers and firefighters, as well as teachers, service workers, and others who seek affordable housing in Cary (See also Housing Resources).

Sick or injured animals, animals that are treated cruelly, or animals running at large should be reported to Animal Control; also report any animal bites to humans or pets. Do not touch or try to capture any wild or stranger animal, especially those that may carry the rabies virus and even if you think the animal is dead; instead, report the location of the animal to Animal Control immediately. For help removing or repelling pesky wild animals not in your living space - such as bats in the attic or raccoons in the garbage - see PEST CONTROL in the Yellow Pages.

The North Carolina Building Code requires a backwater valve to be installed if the plumbing fixtures are below the top of the first, upstream manhole on the street. A properly operating backwater valve allows flow to go only in one direction, thus preventing wastewater from entering your building during regular sewer system maintenance or inadvertent sewer system backups. To find out if you have or need a backwater valve, check your plumbing plans or consult with your builder or professional plumber. If sewage backs up into your home, the cost to repair damages and clean up may be high, and towns cannot be held liable for damages when a backwater valve has not been installed by a property owner.
