§                     Public hearings to obtain community input are required prior to City Council taking action on annexation requests.

§                     A petition has been received from the owners of this 13.611-acre property located along the west side of Interstate 485, the north side of Rocky River Road, and southeast of Caldwell Road.

§                     The property is owned by Hampton Woods Residential, LLC.

§                     The property is currently vacant and is zoned R-3 which allows for single-family residential uses.

§                     The petitioned area consists of a portion of one parcel; parcel identification number (PID): 105-381-02. Most of this parcel is already located within City limits; this annexation area would bring the rest of the parcel into City limits.

§                     The property is located within Charlotte’s extraterritorial jurisdiction and shares boundaries with current city limits.

§                     The intent of the annexation is to enable the development of 27 single-family residential units on the site.


Consistent with City Council Policies

§                     The annexation is consistent with City voluntary annexation policies approved by the City Council on March 24, 2003; more specifically this annexation:

-                     Is consistent with the policy to not adversely affect the City’s ability to undertake future annexations;

-                     Is consistent with the policy to not have undue negative impact on City finances or services; and

§                     The annexation is inconsistent with the policy to not create unincorporated areas that will be encompassed by new City limits; however, the petitioner is unable to acquire PID 105-181-62, and the parcel is unable to be developed due to environmental constraints.

§                     This annexation petition is recommended for approval because despite encompassing PID 105-181-62 with new City limits, the proposed annexation will have a positive impact on City resources and aid the future development of the area.
