Berewick to be Studied for Possible Annexation in 2009

(June 11, 2007) At its regular meeting on June 11, the Charlotte City Council approved resolutions of consideration identifying eight areas around the city that will be studied for possible annexation in 2009. The only area in Steele Creek included is the Berewick and adjacent areas.

The Berewick area of consideration is bounded on the west by Lake Wylie; on the north by Bracebridge Court, Dixie River Road, Steele Creek Road, and Shopton Road; on the east by Sandy Porter Road and I-485; and on the south by the current city limits. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Planning Commission staff will review this area to see if any or all of it meets state standards for involuntary annexation. They will present maps of the areas that qualify for annexation to the City Council in summer 2008.

The 2009 study area is is identical to the study area for the 2007 annexation. However, none of this area (or any other area in Steele Creek) was selected for annexation in 2007.

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.

All or portions of the study area may be annexed in June 2009. Since no other areas within Steele Creek are within the study areas, no other areas of Steele Creek can be annexed involuntarily before the next annexation cycle in 2011.
