(WMC-TV) - Another annexation affecting 3,000 people will happen in about two weeks. The people of Southwind have known about the upcoming annexation since 2005.
Megan Wooten lives in the Windyke Hills neighborhood, which is one of two areas set to be annexed on December 31.
"It's nice. We have no street lights here. We have one street light in this neighborhood," she said.
Those are two things that will have to change once the now unincorporated part of Shelby County joins Memphis. It is something not all neighbors are happy about, but they say they do not have a choice.
The annexation is not new. In 1997 the neighborhood sued the city to try to stop the annexation.
They eventually settled in 2005 annexing all commercial parts of the Southwind-Windyke area in 2006. They are waiting until 2013 to annex the rest.
That means as of December 31 a small part of Shelby County, made up mostly of residents inside the gated community of TPC Southwind, will join the City of Memphis.
They will be paying city taxes and fees. Also they will be served by the Memphis Police Department and even receive trash pickup from the city.
Many people say they have already been notified by the city of Memphis, which is already working to make changes effective January 1. If you would like more information about the specifics, click here. Click here to see a map of annexed areas.
