AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

MEETING DATE: July 10, 2006

 

FROM: Laura McElhanon, AICP

Community Development Director

 

SUBJECT: Ordinance for Annexation: Charles Bradshaw (Renaissance Trails)

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends adoption of the proposed Ordinance annexing property for Charles Bradshaw (Renaissance Trails).

 

Analysis:

In response to an application for annexation of property located at the intersection of C.R. 48 and Austin Merritt Road, 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. It was determined by staff that additional property could not be annexed at this time because adjacent property is developed residentially and adjacent lots exceed the size allowed by statute to be annexed involuntarily.

 

The project site is approximately 1,012 acres. The property is generally located at the intersection of C.R. 48 and Austin Merritt Road, in accordance with their PUD application and supplemental information, as shown on the attached General Location Map. The present zoning for this property is County A (Agriculture). Currently, the property is undeveloped and single family uses. The proposed uses are mixed use residential and commercial. The surrounding zoning designations are County (Agriculture) to the south and east, and County A (Agriculture) and City R-2 (Medium Density Residential) to the north and Sumter County to the west which is also being developed as part of Renaissance Trails.

Also on the agenda for this meeting is the rezoning, which is recommended for approval by the Planning Commission. The Large Scale Comprehensive Plan Amendment will be processed as part of the second cycle for 2006.

 

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.

 


 

 

Options:

1. Approve the requested annexation. This will 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 remain in the County.

 

Fiscal Impact:

As indicated on the attached fiscal impact analysis, there will be a negative impact in the first year (-$11,171), and beginning in year two, the City will realize a positive impact with the collection of property taxes.
