Annexation is dead

Therefore, the Petition to Initiate Annexation under the 1903 Act is dismissed.

— Judge Joseph M. James, October 28, 2022

Today, court found that the outdated, unused, and unfitting 1903 annexation law was effectively repealed by the 1968 PA Constitution. We are pleased with this outcome, as it comports with our understanding of the law as presented by one of the intervenors in the annexation petition case.

This doesn’t mean our work has ended. Wilkinsburg Future is only just getting started.
