Huntsville: Now over 200 square miles!

The Huntsville City Council, in a special meeting held today, annexed another 3,000 acres in Limestone County, bringing the total size of the city to 202 square miles. The land is adjacent to Athens city limits along I-65 and along the future Memphis-Huntsville-Atlanta freeway corridor. Huntsville Times

In the past month, the city has mass-annexed 12 square miles of Limestone County land amid fears that the state legislature could make it tough to annex more land in the county (see earlier post).
