Annexation highly unlikely

Wilmington has no desire to incorporate Castle Hayne due to the lack of infrastructure and their obligation to make a considerable investment.This was a laughable scare campaign that showed NO real value to the citizens.People are not willing to pay for duplicative services on par with what they already receive now.The character of Castle Hayne has relatively gone unchanged over the last fifty years.Due to action by the N.C General Assembly, forced annexation is a thing of the past.A MAJORITY of the voters have spoken therefore respect the outcome.If you want to influence county policy concerning Castle Hayne,it would be my suggestion to run for county commissioner.The reason Wilmington tried to annex Monkey Junction was to expand their footprint over an area that was already heavily developed,commercialized and had adequate infrastructure in place.An easy land grab for those looking to expand the tax base.If Castle Hayne Inc were to have come to fruition,they would have been operating on a shoestring budget and financing official name recognition on very scarce public dollars.Many larger municipalities are struggling mightily to fiscally stay afloat in an economy they will in all probability be stagnate for years to come.
