RALEIGH, NC (WWAY) — Castle Hayne is a step closer to becoming a town. The North Carolina Senate this afternoon approved a bill to let voters decide whether to incorporate.

The House will now discuss it. If it passes there, residents would vote on a referendum this fall.

The Castle Hayne Steering Committee has been working for years to incorporate, especially as the City of Wilmington expands its annexation plans.

I think its funny that Castle Hayne incorporated itself to avoid annexation. Essentially becoming the very thing they sought to avoid. Especially when Wilmington is studying annexation in every direction except towards Castle Hayne (NE – Ogden, N – Kings Grant, S – Everything). They should have taken that as a sign that Wilmington simply wasn’t interested in a large land tract area with low population density and land value. That and the fact that Wilmington can’t even annex Castle Hayne as its not contiguous with its boundary.
