Approval of the proposed annexation.
In response to an application for annexation of property located south of U.S. Highway 441 at the northwest corner of Pringle and Purdum Avenues, the City has evaluated the area relative to additional property that could be annexed into the City to allow for a more regular city limit/city service boundary. Staff determined that additional property could not be annexed at this time due to adjacent lots containing existing residential development.
The project site is approximately .92 acres. (See the accompanying General Location Map). The present zoning for this property is County R-1 (Rural Residential). Currently, the existing land use is partially undeveloped and a vacant single family residence. The proposed use of the site is two single family residences with a reverse City frontage road on the north boundary.
Also on the agenda for this meeting are the rezoning and small scale comprehensive plan amendment for this property, which are recommended for approval by the Planning Commission.
City water and wastewater utilities are available in the area. The developer is responsible for all cost and construction to make the necessary extension and hook-ups to City utilities in accordance with City requirements. Police and fire services are presently provided in this area and impacts on the provision of these services are estimated to be minimal.
Attached is the Annexation Agreement for this property, which will be before the Commission for consideration May 22, 2006.
1. Approve the requested annexation. This would give the City jurisdiction over the use and development of the subject site and provide for application of City standards to this property.
2. Disapprove the proposed annexation and allow the development to occur in the County.
Per approved City Commission policy, a fiscal impact analysis is not required for this site because less than four residential units are proposed.
