Annexation protesters line Square
By Mark Wineka
It had the feel of a good old-fashioned tea party ó the Boston Tea party.
Residents from the N.C. 150 area gathered on Salisbury’s Square for the noon lunch hour Thursday carrying signs, passing out papers and brochures, wearing T-shirts and waving the American flag as they demonstrated against the city’s proposed involuntary annexation of their homes.
Salisbury’s proposed annexation would take in eight different subdivisions along N.C. 150 and other areas, including a portion of the Rowan County Airport.
The annexation includes an estimated 1,699 people, a total of 948 parcels and 2,075 acres.
