Cary Announces New Annexation Plan
Posted November 25, 2003 9:12 a.m. EST
CARY,N.C. — The town of Cary is in the middle of an annexation that could push its borders closer to Holly Springs.
The town council has already adopted a
resolution of intent for an involuntary annexation
that would affect 4,800 people and 2,400 acres of land.
If Cary's borders move closer to Holly Springs, the annexation would affect landowners in the Dutchman Downs community and around Holly Springs and Lawdraker roads.
The latest annexation plan comes on the heels of failed development plans in October.
The town of Cary proposed development of 14,000 acres of eastern Chatham County. Hundreds of residents protested the measure.
Residents will have an opportunity to attend a meeting Tuesday to ask questions and voice concerns. The meeting takes place at the Cary Town Council chambers at 6:30 p.m.
The next formal action is expected to occur on Dec. 8 when the town will mail out letters officially notifying affected property owners of the annexation plan. Then on Dec. 11, the Town Council will vote on the official annexation report. The report will describe in detail Cary 's plans for serving the lands to be annexed.
A final vote on the involuntary annexation plan is expected in early March 2004, which would result in an effective date of March 31, 2005.
