Agenda Item Summary:
On January 19, 2016 the City Council directed staff to conduct an annexation study for the Big Sky Subdivision. This direction followed unsuccessful attempts by area property owners to submit a petition for annexation under the voluntary annexation procedures required by SDCL 9-4. The property owners secured the necessary number of signatures to account for 75% of the property valuation; however, they were unable to obtain sufficient signatures from 75% of registered voters. The annexation area consists of approximately 40 acres developed with 131 single family homes. The property is zoned Suburban Residential District in Pennington County. An annexation study prepared in accordance with SDCL 9-4-4.1 is linked with the project information. The Planning Commission and City Council shall direct staff on whether or not to include language authorizing payment to the Rapid Valley Rural Fire Protection District in accordance with SDCL 34-31A-25 and Section 3.20.020 of the Rapid City Municipal Code. On January 17, 2017 the City Council approved the Resolution of Intent to Annex. Since that time, the Planner assigned to this case has not received new inquiries or comments expressing opposition from residents in the annexation area
