Town annexes mobile home park

The Deer Run Mobile Home Park was annexed in to the Town of Mocksville earlier this month via a unanimous decision by town board members.

The 101-acre addition will add $1.2 million in taxable property to the town, said Manager Ken Gamble.

Maybe as important is the fact the annexation is contiguous, meaning it adjoins land already in the town limits. It opens more areas for non-contiguous annexation, because only a percentage of the town’s total area can be used for non-contiguous annexations.
