§                     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 shares boundaries with current city limits along parcel identification numbers: 219-091-30, and 219-091-12.

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

§                     The 26.094-acre “Hamilton Woods” site is located along the south side of Hamilton Road, west of Steele Creek Road in southwest Mecklenburg County.

-                     The site has existing single family homes that will be removed prior to any redevelopment.

-                     The petitioner has plans to develop 119 single family detached residential units.

-                     The property is zoned R-3, which allows for single family residential uses up to three dwelling units per acre.

-                     The property is located adjacent to City Council District 3.

-                     The petitioned area consists of eleven parcels; parcel identification numbers: 219-09-130, 219-091-31, 219-091-32, 219-091-13, 219-091-33, 219-091-14, 219-091-15, 219-091-19, 219-091-12, 219-091-17, and 219-091-16.


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; and

-                     Is consistent with the policy to not have undue negative impact on city finances or services.

-                     Per policy, voluntary annexations that encompass unincorporated areas by new city limits may be approved if the following conditions exist:

§                     A petitioner for a voluntary annexation would experience a significant hardship if the annexation were not approved;

§                     It is not feasible to annex the unincorporated parcels that may be surrounded by new city limits; or

§                     Under the facts of a particular voluntary annexation petition, the City’s interests are served by varying the application of one of more of these policies.

-                     This voluntary annexation is being recommended because it will have a positive impact on City resources and aid the future development of the area.
