The Planning staff recommends approval of the proposed annexation for Mary Davena Stephens (Premier Senior Living).
The property owner has submitted an application for annexation of approximately 9.99 acres of land generally located west of C.R. 25A, south of the northern intersection of C.R. 25A with U.S. 27, as shown on the attached General Location Map. The present zoning for this property is County A (Agriculture). Currently, the property is vacant and undeveloped and the proposed use is a residential assisted living facility. The surrounding zoning designations are City R-2 (Medium Density Residential) and County A (Agriculture) to the east, City R-2 (Medium Density Residential) to the north, County A (Agriculture) to the west and County R-6 (Urban Residential) to the south.
Staff evaluated the area relative to additional property that could be annexed into the City to allow for amore regular city limit/city service boundary.. Staff determined that additional property could not be annexed at this time because of the size of the adjacent lots and, adjacent property is developed residentially.
Also on the agenda for this meeting are the rezoning and the small scale comprehensive plan amendment of this property, which are recommended for approval by the Planning Commission.
Police and fire services are presently provided in this area and impacts on the provision of these services are estimated to be minimal.
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 remain in the County
As indicated on the attached fiscal impact analysis, there will be a small positive impact in the first year ($822). Once the proposed assisted living facility is constructed, the City will realize greater property taxes from this property.
