The applicants request to de-annex 19.5 acres of land from the Rapid City corporate limits. The property is located north of the I-190 interchange and west of Haines Avenue. Access to the property is from Mount Carmel Street, which is maintained by the City of Rapid City. The subject property is comprised of eleven acres of unplatted property and 8.5 acres of property that is platted into twelve lots. The eleven acre parcel is developed with a single family home. The 8.5 acre parcel is void of structural development. The property is located within the City’s Urban Service Boundary and zoned Park Forest District. In 2014, the City adopted Resolution 2014-090 identifying a policy on de-annexation. Of the 14 criteria to consider, there are 7 criteria that are in conflict with this de-annexation request. The Letter of Intent submitted with the application states that eliminating the stormwater run-off fee and reducing taxes are the primary factor for requesting the de-annexation. Due to multiple conflicts with the de-annexation policy, staff recommends denying the de-annexation request.
