AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

MEETING DATE: June 11, 2007

 

FROM: Laura McElhanon, AICP, Community Development Director

 

SUBJECT: Ordinance for annexation for Teeter property

 

 

Staff Recommendation

The Planning staff recommends approval of the proposed annexation for the Teeter property.

 

Analysis

The property owner submitted an application for annexation of approximately 23 acres of land generally located north of SR 44, west of CR 468, as shown on the attached General Location Map. The present zoning for this property is R-6 (Urban Residential). Currently, the property is undeveloped and the proposed use of the site is for commercial and industrial uses. The surrounding zoning designations are County A (Agriculture) to the north, County R-6 (Residential) to the west, City M-1 (Industrial) to the east, and County HM (Heavy Industrial) and LM (Light Industrial), and City M-1 (Industrial) 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. State Statute 171.0413(6) provides for the City to initiate annexations with the consent of at least 50% of the property owners. Staff determined that additional property could not be annexed at this time because adjacent property is developed residentially and the adjacent property is larger than allowed by the State Statute to be annexed involuntarily.

Police and fire services are presently provided in this area and impacts on the provision of these services are estimated to be minimal.

 

Also on the June 11, 2007 agenda is the first reading of an ordinance to rezone this property to M-1 (Industrial).

 

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 positive impact beginning in the first year ($7,994).
