Wilmington gated community looks to become municipality

Video

Body

A local gated community may soon become its own village. The Cape private community is exploring options to become New Hanover County’s fifth municipality.

A concern about the City of Wilmington’s annexation of Monkey Junction worried board members at The Cape; they were concerned that their land may be in future plans. In order to become immune to annexation, talks about incorporation began.

The community has done extensive research into the issue and has held five meetings with its 1,200 residents to inform them about the pros and cons of incorporation.

On October 10th, residents will have the opportunity to vote on whether or not they support or oppose the incorporation of a new village.

Residents we spoke to within the community generally supported the idea of forming a new village. The main theme among community members was a desire for things to stay the same at The Cape, and they feel that they can accomplish that through incorporation.

If a new village is formed, it would be self governed by its own elected government.
