HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. -- In terms of acreage, it's a minor addition for Huntersville. But Monday night's unanimous town board acceptance of an annexation request from Cambridge-Huntersville LLC does represent a significant potential boost to the town's commercial business base.
Following a public hearing, Huntersville commissioners voted 4-0 (commissioners Melinda Bales and Ron Julian were absent) to approve the voluntary annexation of a 21-acre portion of the Huntersville Market development on the north side of Eastfield Road at the Prosperity Church Road intersection. The property does not connect with existing town boundaries but the non-contiguous nature of the annexation was simplified by the request from the property owner.
