Chatham County sets hearing on annexation agreement with Cary and Apex

Pittsboro, NC - On April 18, 2011, the Chatham County Board of Commissioners will hold a public hearing on a proposed agreement with the towns of Cary and Apex that will prevent any involuntary annexations by either town into Chatham County for 20 years. The hearing is slated for 6 pm in the Agriculture Auditorium in Pittsboro.

Commissioner Chairman Brian Bock said, “This is a required hearing so that we can formally ratify an agreement with Cary and Apex that we have already approved.”

The Tri-Party Annexation Agreement between the three local governments is the result of a Feb. 21, 2011 decision by a majority of the Board of Commissioners to allow the Western Wake Partnership (WWP) to negotiate with landowners in Chatham County for treated water easements on their properties. However, the commissioners made this approval contingent on the WWP or its partner towns meeting certain conditions.

One condition was a signed agreement with Apex and Cary related to prevent involuntary annexations in Chatham County by either town. The hearing is required so that the Chatham County Board of Commissioners can approve the agreement.
