Has any Southeastern North Carolina city ever de-annexed a portion of its boundaries?

Julian March

At least one municipality in Southeastern North Carolina has shrunk.

In 2001, the N.C. General Assembly deannexed around 2,000 acres of undeveloped land that had been in the town of Belville.

In 2005, the General Assembly again removed land from Belville, though that parcel was only about two acres.


Will property taxes be retroactive if the city prevails in a lawsuit challenging the annexation of Monkey Junction?

What amenities does a county resident enjoy for free that the taxes of a city resident pay for?
