County Property in Steele Creek
(March 1, 2008)
At its February 25 meeting, the Charlotte City Council approved
annexation of several properties around the edge of Charlotte, and
two of these were in Steele Creek.
One is on the west
side of Gallant Lane across from Kennedy Middle School. This is
owned by the Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation Department. It
is undeveloped but eventually will be part of the greenway system
connecting Steele Creek Neighborhood Park with neighborhoods,
businesses, and other locations along Steele Creek to the south.
The other site covers
Winget Park and the Winget Park Elementary School property on Winget
These annexations are
considered voluntary because the property owner (the Mecklenburg
County Board of Commissioners) consented to the annexation.
Charlotte plans a large involuntary annexation in June 2009. The
Berewick area is among the areas that are being studied for possible
annexation then. (See
Berewick to be Studied for Possible Annexation in 2009.)
