Not yet. It is pretty much done except for paving. At least part of that land has not yet been annexed by the Town of St James. It is part of St James but falls under the jurisdiction of Brunswick County, not the Town of St Jame. The new fire station annex is involved in this (its going to be on this new road) and an I know the SJP fire department is anxious for some of these issues to be resolved. I think annexation is coming very soon. Primarily because dealing with the Town will be easier than dealing with the county when it comes to construction etc. Included in the new fire station will be an emergency operations center specifically for SJP.

There have been a few people that that have had issues between the developer and annexation but mostly I think it is trivial but some people do not.

So .... there is a lot of politics going on in the background but I think the road will be open soon.

The county handles all building permit applications, building inspections, certificates of occupancy, etc. for the town.

Annexation is no longer a rubber stamp as it was in the past. State law stopped the business of developers/communities/cities deciding unilaterally that the land should be annexed.

While thats generally true for forced annexations, in this case its a moot point as the developer of St. James owns the land being annexed. It will be a voluntary annexation.

I would make the exploratory trip -BUT, many more great, lower cost housing opportunities in that area. Better be married to golf, talking about golf (women and men), and of course, 'listening to how we did it back home'. Pretty area down there.
I'm another one looking to retire but not a golfer and SJP is a little out of my range. You mention other areas. Can you list a few?

Almost everything in Brunswick County is less expensive than St James. Some plantations to look at include: Brunswick Forest, Magnolia Greens, Waterford of the Carolinas, Compass Pointe, Arbor Creek, etc. Please search through the other threads, as this thread is just for St. James.

There is a good web site to compare prices and amenities in various Bruswick County developments: Google "Carolina Plantations".

SJP is more expensive for a reason ...... consider ALL the amenities. Honestly; it's NOT for everyone. It is for me though. And I'm not one of the northern "come heres" either. I was born in NC but lived mostly in NoVA and Florida. I did a lot of research before relocating from Florida to here.
