Approval of the
response to an application for annexation of property located south of the
Ronald Reagan Turnpike and east of C.R. 48, 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.
State Statute 171.0413(6)
provides for the City to initiate annexations with the consent of at least 50%
of the property owners. It was determined by staff that additional
property could not be annexed at this time due to adjacent lot sizes and
adjacent lots containing existing residential development.
The project site is approximately 149 acres. The property is generally located south of the Ronald Reagan Turnpike and east of C.R. 48, as shown on the attached General Location Map. The present zoning for this property is County A (Agriculture). Currently, the property is undeveloped and the proposed use is Residential Planned Unit Development. The surrounding zoning designations are PUD (Planned Unit Development) to the east and City R-2 (Medium Density Residential), P (Public) and PUD (Planned Unit Development) to the north and City R-2 (Medium Density Residential) to the south and County A (Agriculture) to the west.
Also on the agenda for this meeting is the rezoning for this property, which is recommended for approval by the Planning Commission. The Large Scale Comprehensive Plan Amendment is being processed as part of the First Cycle 2006 amendments, which has been transmitted to the Florida Department of Community Affairs.
City water and wastewater utilities will be 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 on June 26, 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.
As indicated on the attached fiscal impact analysis, there will be a small positive impact in the first year ($482), and beginning in year two, with the collection of property taxes, the positive impact would increase.
