Annexation highly unlikely

Given the town's lack of infrastructure ( i.e water and sewer) and limited development, I can not honestly see where Castle Hayne will be gobbled up by Wilmington.It is not a very attractive option for Wilmington, given how much money would have to be invested in the community.I understand the rich heritage of the community trying to be preserved but I think the residents can rest comfortably about being encroached upon.The character of this community has relatively gone unchanged for the last 50 years.With all due respect to Mr.Radewicz,I thought his long term objective was to preserve the character of area as it is now and not pursue growth and industry.I guess he sees the growth and the effort of trying to lure industry as a way to support and sustain another layer of government.Most citizens probably are not receptive to another bureaucracy to deal with , while receiving duplicative services for more money. I suspect there are some personal agendas at play and not just some individuals looking out for the welfare of their fellow citizens.
If the current trend continues with a Republican General Assembly issuing a moratorium on annexation and hopefully a Republican governor coming aboard, forced annexation will likely be a thing of the past.The pro incorporation forces appear to be trying to scare misinformed residents about future encroachments that in all likelihood will never come to fruition.
