FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- Neighborhood leaders in the La Cabreah subdivision are asking the City of Fort Wayne if they can be annexed.

If the city annexes La Cabreah, 174 homes and nearly 100 acres would be added to Fort Wayne city limits.

The annex would allow residents to have police and fire services, garbage and recycling collection and more.

Fox 55 spoke with many people in the Villas of La Cabreah near Dupont Road who say they don't want to be annexed and we're not given much information about the petition.

"I would like to see this list of people that are on board with this. A lot of my neighbors that I talked to, they're not on board with it," said Sue Soberalski.

The annexation could take effect by the spring of 20-19.
