I bought my home in 1978. I was told by the realtor that I could possibly be annexed into the city in 2 or 3 years, but I loved the home so much that I was willing to take a chance and hoped that it might be a longer period of time than he suggested. I figured anything past 3 years was extra savings from not having to pay double property taxes.
Thirty-three years later, it still hasn't been annexed. I have learned that governmental doesn't move quickly (sometimes not at all), and my home was the best investment of my life.
I really don't believe Castle Hayne residents have anything to worry about anytime soon. Even if the chairman of the BOCC said that getting water and sewer to Castle Hayne was one of his top priorities, the actual building and installing those lines will take quite a bit of time (my guess is at least a couple of generations). By that time, who knows?
