Biltmore Lake residents’ annexation lawsuit against city of Asheville

A lawsuit filed in response to a 2007 decision by Asheville City Council to annex the Biltmore Lake subdivision in Enka will be heard in Buncombe County Superior Court on Tuesday, Jan. 19.

The 2007 action was stalled by a petition from residents, who have not had to pay city property taxes in the intervening time.

The group Biltmore Lake Community Action Committee, through the site StopAsheville has been crusading against the annexation, and lobbied for approval of an annexation moratorium by the N.C. General Assembly.
