AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

MEETING DATE:   October 13, 2008

 

FROM:                       Bill Wiley, AICP, Community Development Director

 

SUBJECT:                  Ordinance for annexation for Leesburg Church of God in Christ property

 

 

Staff Recommendation

The Planning staff recommends approval of the proposed annexation for the Leesburg Church of God in Christ property.

 

Analysis

The property owner submitted an application for annexation of approximately 1.62 acres of land generally located east of C.R. 468, north of Montclair Road, adjacent to Park Circle, as shown on the attached General Location Map. The present zoning for this property is County RP (Residential Professional). Currently, the property is undeveloped and the proposed use is a thrift store as an accessory use for the church.

 

The property, currently located in the County, is bounded on all four sides by property in the City.  The annexation of the property would remove an enclave and allow for more compact urban form.

 

Also on the agenda for this meeting is the rezoning of this property, which is recommended for approval by the Planning Commission. A small scale comprehensive plan amendment is also on the agenda for this meeting.

                                    

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 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:

No significant fiscal impact is expected, as the size of the property falls below the guidelines for preparation of a fiscal impact analysis.
