City Council Regular Meeting
Meeting Date: 01/05/2021  

BACKGROUND
Annexation of land into the City's corporate limits may be voluntary or involuntary. Each type has Texas Local Government Code (LGC) requirements that identify the necessary process based on the annexation type. The City's Unified Development Code (UDC) Section 21.4.8 includes provisions that apply to requests for voluntary annexation meeting certain criteria. This section of the City's UDC includes provisions for processing of voluntary annexation requests.  

Schertz 312, LLC has submitted a petition for voluntary annexation to the City of Schertz for approximately 142 acres of land located generally 3,500 feet southwest of the intersection of Doerr Lane and Bell North Drive, Comal County, Texas. 

The subject property is directly related to City of Schertz, Resolution 20-R-83 and City of San Antonio, Ordinance 2020-12-10-0903. These documents between the two cities agreed to a release of the subject property from the City of San Antonio's Extraterritorial Jurisdiction to the City of Schertz based on certain conditions to be met by the City of Schertz. One of those conditions was that the City of Schertz would start the annexation proceedings on the property within three months of the effective date of the ordinance. This resolution (Res. No. 21-R-03) is the initial step in the annexation proceedings on this property, which complies with the requirement based on the agreement between the City of Schertz and the City of San Antonio. 

Upon City Council accepting Schertz 312, LLC's current petition for voluntary annexation of the approximately 142 acres, it would initiate the process to annex and zone the property. The adoption of this resolution accepting the petition for annexation from Schertz 312, LLC does not annex the subject property, but allows for City Council to annex the property by ordinance in the future. A subsequent ordinance for annexation must be approved by City Council to annex the property, tentatively scheduled to be heard at the January 26, 2021, City Council meeting. Schertz 312, LLC has also request to zone the subject property, upon annexation, Manufacturing District- Light (M-1). 

A public hearing notice was published on December 16, 2020, in the San Antonio Express News. 
GOAL
Schertz 312, LLC is requesting voluntary annexation into the City of Schertz because of their desire to be located within the Schertz City limits and their desire to develop the property in accordance with the requested Manufacturing District- Light (M-1) zoning district. 
COMMUNITY BENEFIT
