Delay Annexation of Millstream To The City of Greensboro New Blog

There is a new blog in the neighborhood who wants the City of Greensboro to delay the annexation of the Millstream area to the City of Greensboro CLICKHERE or click on the title above.

The Greensboro City Council on tuesday voted 5-4 to annex this area in to Greensboro with Small,Wells,and the developer contingent in Matheny,Groat and Perkins all voted to annex this area.

With the absurd rule in the Greensboro charter about passing with only a simple majority then they will have to wait another few weeks till the next meeting for council to vote again. It will be interesting to see if these citizens can sway one vote to overturn the annexation because that would make it 5-4 in denial if all the council makes it to the meeting.

If you would like to see the video of their presentation and the back and forth between council members CLICKHERE then proceed to April 7, 2009 then click on #10.

One of the main questions that hasn't been addressed is how come the Sedgefield area of Greensboro are not a part of any annexation at all? It would be great to get any answers as to how they are exempt from any annexation.

There is a huge movement on the state level called Stop NC Annexation Coalition CLICKHERE, they have been fighting this battle for awhile.
