Charlotte Plans Major Annexation in Steele Creek in 2005

(May 10, 2004) Next July 1, almost 10,000 residents of Steele Creek likely will become new Charlotte residents whether they want to or not. The city typically follows a two-year cycle of involuntary annexations, and Steele Creek is the major target area for the current cycle. Areas generally qualify if they contain dense residential development, but sparsely populated areas also can qualify if they are averaged in with adjacent single-family, condominium, and apartment developments. Targeted areas include virtually all new residential developments in Steele Creek that aren't already in the city, plus the lower density areas in between them.
