§                     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 81.039-acre property located on the east side of Hutchinson Lane, the west side of Kelly Road, and just north of Pleasant Grove Road.

§                     The property is owned by Meritage Homes of the Carolinas, Inc.

§                     A portion of the site is currently developed with five single family homes and the remainder of the site is vacant. The site is zoned MX-2 Innov, which allows for residential mixed-use development with innovative standards.

§                     The petitioned area consists of eleven parcels; parcel identification numbers: 033-231-01, 033-051-03, 033-051-16, 033-051-21, 033-051-31, 033-051-32, 033-051-33, 033-051-34, 033-051-41, 033-051-10, and 033-051-15.

§                     The property is located within Charlotte’s extraterritorial jurisdiction and does not share boundaries with current city limits.

§                     The intent of the annexation is to enable the development of 280 multi-family units on the site.


Consistent with City Council Policies

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

-                     Will not adversely affect the city’s ability to undertake future annexations;

-                     Will not have undue negative impact on city finances or services; and

-                     Will not result in a situation where unincorporated areas will be encompassed by new city limits
