§                     The city has received a petition for voluntary annexation of private property.

§                     Public hearings are required prior to City Council action on annexation requests.

§                     This property is located within Charlotte’s extraterritorial jurisdiction.

§                     The area proposed for annexation does not share boundaries with current city limits.

§                     Annexation of this area will allow for more orderly development review, extension of city services, capital investments, and future annexation processes.

§                     The 100.547-acre “Mt. Holly Riverside” site is located along the north side of Mount Holly Road in western Mecklenburg County.

-                     The property is currently vacant aside from an existing regional lift station that will stay in place and in use as future development occurs.

-                     The petitioner has plans to develop 258 single family attached units, 159 single family detached units, and 336 multi-family units on the site.

-                     The property is zoned MX-2, which allows for residential mixed-use development.

-                     The property is located near Council District 2.

-                     The petitioned area consists of one parcel; parcel identification number: 031-441-01.


Consistency with City Council Policies

§                     The annexation is consistent with voluntary annexation policy approved by 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;

-                     Is consistent with the policy to not create unincorporated areas that will be encompassed by new city limits.
