WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — It looks like two communities will not face annexation after all.

Yesterday was the deadline for Monkey Junction residents and property owners near Southport to return annexation denial petitions. It’s unofficial right now, but both communities returned more than 75 percent of the petitions. Only 60 percent were needed to block annexation.

Southport’s petitions will be certified December 7.

Monkey Junction’s will be certified December 9.
