No Annexations for Steele Creek in 2007

(August 1, 2006) Every two years the City of Charlotte annexes areas adjacent to the city that meet state standards for urban development. Annexations regularly become effective on June 30 in odd-numbered years. The city recently announced the target areas for its planned 2007 annexation, and none of them are in Steele Creek.

In June 2005, Charlotte annexed two large areas in Steele Creek, comprising almost 5,000 acres and containing about 9,500 residents.  Within these areas were almost all the new, densely populated residential areas of unincorporated Steele Creek. The city will have to wait for more development to occur, which certainly will have happened by the time of the 2009 annexation cycle. The Berewick area was studied for possible annexation in 2007 and likely will be a prime candidate again for 2009.

For more information on the annexation process and schedule, visit the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Planning Commission Annexation Page.

For a detailed review and discussion of the annexation process, see the following news story: Study Areas for 2005 Annexation Identified in Steele Creek (Steele Creek Residents Association, November 25, 2004). Also see How to Make the Most out of Being Annexed (Steele Creek Residents Association, July 3, 2005).
