Charlotte Identifies 2011 Annexation Study Areas

(June 6, 2009) At its June 8 meeting, the Charlotte City Council is expected to adopt Resolutions of Consideration identifying seven areas for possible annexation in 2011. Two of these areas are in Steele Creek.

One is called "Sandy Porter" and includes the unincorporated area east of I-485 and south of the approximate future West Boulevard extension. It includes the Eagle Lake, Winterglen, Sullivans Trace, Lebanon Heights, Ayrshire Glen, Laurel Valley, and Stonegrove neighborhoods, the new Shopton Square shopping center, and several office and industrial areas off Beam Road and Shopton Road.

The other is called "Sledge" and includes the unincorporated area north of Four Horse Road. It includes the Sanctuary, Chapel Cove, Hartwell, Winget Pond, Waterlyn, and Pine Harbor Road neighborhoods, the northern part of McDowell Park, Winget Park, Winget Park Elementary School, and the new Fire Station 38.

2011 Annexation Study Areas

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Planning Department staff will study the areas to see if all or part of them meet development and contiguity standards required by state law. The qualifying areas will be announced in late spring 2010. The city will conduct public meetings and public hearings before the City Council adopts the Ordinance of Annexation in November 2010. The annexations will be effective on June 30, 2011. The city may annex all, part, or none of the study areas.

The City of Charlotte follows a two-year annexation cycle. The map above shows the city limits as of June 30, 2009. Portions of Berewick and adjacent areas will be annexed on that date. For more information on the annexation process, see the Charlotte Annexation web page.
