Brevard, NC


clarrification - 3/30/2008
Brevard's mild climate and mountain views have turned it into a summer home and tourist mecca. Housing prices have soared. Unfortunately, over the last 4 years, the 2 main industiral plants have closed leaving 1,000 locals out of jobs. The preview here says jobs are good, but it is a false statistic. Many of the locals are working 2 or 3 jobs to keep their homes and cars. Property values are now so high that the locals cannot afford land or a house if they didn't already own one. They are resentful and suspicious of the money-hungry developers and their clients. It's a sad situation.
The only redemption is that nearly 1/2 the county (Transylvania) is in National Forest, State Forest, or State Park.
Brevard city limits is only about 8,000, not the 16,000 listed. That is merely the number of people receiving mail out of the Brevard Post Office.
