AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

MEETING DATE:   June 11, 2007 

 

FROM:                       Laura McElhanon, AICP, Community Development Director

 

SUBJECT:                  Ordinance for annexation for Price property

 

 

Staff Recommendation

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

 

Analysis

The property owner submitted an application for annexation of approximately 20 acres of land generally located south of CR 48, west of No. 2 Road, as shown on the attached General Location Map. The present zoning for this property is County A (Agriculture). The property is currently undeveloped and the proposed use of the site is for residential development. The surrounding zoning designations are County A (Agriculture) to the east, south, and City PUD (Planned Unit Development) to the north and west.

 

Staff 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. 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.

 

The Annexation Agreement will require future rezoning to Planned Unit Development (PUD) by the developer, which will be consistent with the City’s adopted Comprehensive Plan.

 

Options:

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

 


 

Fiscal Impact:

As indicated on the attached fiscal impact analysis, there will be a small positive impact in the first year ($161) and beginning in year 2 the positive impact will increase with the collection of property taxes.
