§                     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 21.7621-acre “Oak Lake” site is located on the east side of Mt. Holly Huntersville Road west of I-485 in northwest Mecklenburg County.

-                     The site is largely vacant, and the existing single-family home will be removed prior to any redevelopment.

-                     The petitioner has plans to build 140 single family attached units on the site.

-                     The property is zoned R-8 (CD) and R-3, which allow for single family residential uses.

-                     The property is located near Council District 4.

-                     The petitioned area consists of four parcels; parcel identification numbers: 033-111-07, 033-111-16, 033-281-01, and 033-111-18.


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.
