Montgomery Annexation

8 posts in this topic

Alabama lawmakers passed a bill this week that will allow Montgomery to annex more than 1,000 acres into the city limits, including the Mobis Alabama plant, the largest parts supplier to the Hyundai plant. Mobis, which employs over 800 workers, is located in an industrial park east of Mitchell Young Road, south of Well Road and north of U.S. 80.

Mayor Bobby Bright said he's excited by the annexation because it means the city is expanding to the west, and not just to the east.

Looked on Live Local, looks like a great annexation. The eastern part of the Montgomery Metro has got good growth going. But, I just don't hear much about western portions. So, hopefully, growth will follow this. Maybe some of it could even bleed to Selma, keep the population from sliding.

That area out near the airport is mostly industrial, so this should be a pretty good revenue generator for the city.

A proposed annexation in the Chantilly Parkway area of east Montgomery will likely by approved at the next city council meeting. The property, which touches the boundaries of Montgomery and Pike Road, is in a hotbed of new retail development, and city officials hope this annexation will lead to more in the area.

Hopefully this will pass and more of that area will be annexed by Montgomery instead of Pike Road.

Go MGM! Hopefully this will happen w/out a hitch. As I've stated before, I'm not a fan of the so called town of Pike Road. My wish would be to see P.R. dissolve and MGM swallow them whole, but we know that ain't never gonna happen$$$$.

^It's done. The 5-acre parcel containing the Shops at Chantilly is now part of the city of Montgomery. One of the businesse there at the Shops at Chantilly is the Cuco's restaurant that recently moved from an East Boulevard location.

I'd like to see Pike Road dissolved and annexed by Montgomery too, but, sadly, I'm afraid the little exclusive community is going to prosper and siphon off resources from the city for years to come.
