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
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.
