We just relocated here from Albuquerque and I was talking with a local at a park in Concord the other day about interest in purchasing a home in Huntersville and he mentioned that there was talk of annexing the town of Huntersville into Charlotte. I'm not very familiar with what this would mean for Huntersville. We're currently living in an apt. in Concord and considering Concord, Matthews and Huntersville for purchasing a home.

How would Huntersville being annexed into Charlotte affect me as a resident of Huntersville? Thanks.

Charlotte can't annex property that is already inside Huntersville's boundries. One city can't just take over another one because it is bigger.

Towns form in some places just to keep from getting annexed by a nearby city.

Can the City of Charlotte annex an area already in one of the towns (Huntersville, Mint Hill, etc.)?
Charlotte cannot annex an area already incorporated into another local municipality. Charlotte and the four towns in Mecklenburg County with which Charlotte shares boundaries (Mint Hill, Matthews, Pineville, and Huntersville) have mutually agreed upon boundaries - called "spheres of influence" - beyond which each entity has agreed not to annex. One municipality cannot annex property within another's sphere of influence. Therefore, no unincorporated area of Mecklenburg County is eligible to be annexed by more than one Mecklenburg municipality. In addition, the City of Charlotte has annexation agreements with the towns of Weddington, Stallings, Marvin, Concord, Midland, and Harrisburg (all outside of Mecklenburg County) under which the City has agreed not to annex property in Union and Cabarrus Counties (where these towns are located). Those municipalities have also agreed not to annex property in Mecklenburg County within Charlotte's sphere of influence.

Thanks, T. S., for the informative website. I guess the person I talked with at the park was confused about a piece of news he heard. Thanks for clearing that up with me. I'm relieved to hear that annexation is not a threat. Thanks again.

I was gonna say, I thought Huntersville is already incorporated, thus could not be annexed by another city. Confused me for a few minutes there!
