A Grassroots Effort to End forced Annexation Abuse in North Carolina

"We lay it down as a fundamental, that laws, to be just,
must give a reciprocation of right; that, without this, they are mere arbitrary rules of conduct, founded in force, and not in conscience."

STOPNCANNEXATION believes that North Carolina property owners and taxpaying citizens should, and must, have a voice and say in any decision to become, or be made part of, any City or Town.

Currently, forced annexation is occurring more often all over the State of North Carolina. In fact, the use of Involuntary Annexation is encouraged by City Planning Staffs everywhere and the North Carolina League of Municipalities. It's use has increased dramatically over the last decade.

The goal of this website is to provide you, the North Carolina property owner and citizen, with a central, non-partisan, place for information gathering, sharing and organizing in your local and state efforts to fight and change these undemocratic forced annexation practices and laws.

We all need to join forces to show our elected officials that united we will stand and fight against the involuntary take over and increased taxation of our properties. << YOU DID IT AND IT WORKED!!

Please join the effort to reform North Carolina Annexation Law. Use the resources provided here, get on the mailing list, send us your news to post, and spread the word about this website and the Coalition effort to change the law.

Forced Annexation is Against American Principles!!
