WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Wilmington city council members voted in favor of holding a public meeting on the proposed voluntary annexation of a vacant plot near Market Street and Marsh Oaks Drive in Porters Neck.

Development company, Flournoy, wants the city of Wilmington to annex the 27 acres for a future apartment complex.

Flournoy’s attorney and spokesman Tom Johnson told WWAY today, the project will create jobs and help meet the city’s housing needs.

A date and time to hear from the public on the project have not yet been set.

    voluntary annexation? notice the only people who ever want this are developers. another example of developers padding the pockets of Wilmington city council members and another excuse for the city to grab taxable assets. porters neck is next, pretty soon the whole county will be the same thing as city of Wilmington.

    I hope he gets it annexed…and I hope he doesn’t sell a single unit!

    The city fathers must be some of the greediest people alive.

    And don’t forget the developers. What will it cost to provide services to this “special interest”?

    “project will create jobs and help meet the city’s housing needs.”
    After construction, only a few jobs will be available.

    And as for helping Wilmington’s housing needs, there are surplus apartments for rent already in the City.

    No thanks, if you want services, PAY FOR THEM YOURSELF!!!
    We are tired of subsidizing developers and speculators.
