City Council Regular Meeting
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 of processing of voluntary annexation requests.
On behalf of each of the property owners, Scott Felder Homes LLC, Pape-Dawson Engineers, Ltd., and Killen, Griffin & Farrimond, PLLC., submitted a petition for voluntary annexation to the City of Schertz for approximately 287 acres of land. The properties are generally located 6,050 feet east of the intersection of Trainer Hale Road and FM 1518, also known as Property Identification Numbers 310053, 310060, and 310121.
On June 7, 2022, City Council approved Resolution 22-R-53, accepting a petition for voluntary annexation, therefore allowing this annexation ordinance to be heard by the City Council. The property owners are also requesting to zone the subject property to Planned Development District (PDD) which will be heard immediately following action of the annexation Ordinance 22-S-27.
A public hearing notice was published in the San Antonio Express for the public hearing associated with the annexation ordinance on July 1, 2022. City Staff also sent written notice of the proposed annexation to the Board of Trustees for Schertz-Cibolo-Universal City ISD and all property owners within 200 feet on June 30, 2022. Additionally, a public hearing notice has been published on the City of Schertz website on June 30, 2022. At the time of this staff report, Staff has received three (3) responses in favor of the proposed annexation.
The property owners are requesting voluntary annexation into the City of Schertz because they are wanting to develop the property as a residential subdivision under the Planned Development District (PDD).
Promote the safe, orderly, efficient development and ensure compliance with the City's vision of future growth.
SUMMARY OF RECOMMENDED ACTION
Staff recommends approval of annexation Ordinance 22-S-27.
In accordance with Texas Local Government Code (LGC) Chapter 43, the City must provide services to the land on the effective date of the annexation. While some services are provided to the subject property through an interlocal agreement, the City of Schertz must provide police protection, fire protection, emergency medical services, operation and maintenance of streets, solid waste collection, sewer service, and water service. However, the fiscal impact of these annexations were already accounted for given that the subject properties are under delayed annexation development agreements, which will expire in 2024. Per the original agreement, the subject properties were planned to be annexed in 2024, and thus the aforementioned services would be required to be provided at that time.
Staff recommends approval of Ordinance 22-S-27 and the annexation of approximately 287 acres of land.
