WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The NC Court of Appeals today upheld Wilmington’s annexation of Monkey Junction.

“We are very pleased that the Court of Appeals has ruled the city followed the law in the steps we took to annex the Monkey Junction area. We look forward to having this issue resolved as quickly as possible,” said City Manager Sterling Cheatham.

Opponents can still appeal to the NC Supreme Court. There is also pending legislation in the General Assembly that could change state laws on annexation. That could affect the city incorporating Monkey Junction.

When reached by phone this afternoon, the attorney for the homeowners fighting annexation said he had not yet seen the court’s opinion.
