Appeals judges to hear annexation case

January 1, 2007
The Indiana Court of Appeals will consider a case Tuesday that asks whether a county can establish a special economic development area that includes land a municipality has already started to annex.

Arguments are set for 2 p.m. in Brenwick Assoc. et al v. Boone Co. Redevelopment Commission, 06A04-0611-CV-682. The case arose in July 2006, when Whitestown began the process of annexing unincorporated land in Boone County. After the annexation process had started, but before being complete, county officials adopted a resolution establishing an economic development area that included some of the land Whitestown sought to annex. The trial court ruled in favor of Boone County and upheld the newly established development area.

Judges Patrick Sullivan, Margret Robb, and Nancy Vaidik will hear the case.
