IH-10 West and US 281 North Residential 3 Year Municipal Annexation Plan

City Council Consideration

Event date: 9/8/2016 9:00 AM

Develop Service Plans for US 281 North Corridor (commercial) and South San Antonio Voluntary Annexations

Location: City Hall Complex • 105 Main Plaza • San Antonio, TX 78205

IH 10 West

The City would provide services to the 15 square mile area that contains commercial, residential, agricultural and vacant uses on the 37th month from the date City Council approves a three-year Municipal Annexation Plan that would lead to full purpose annexation before October 8, 2019. During the three years prior to the final full purpose annexation vote by City Council, residents will remain in the extraterritorial jurisdiction, will not pay property taxes, will not be zoned, and residents will not vote in municipal elections. Once a municipal annexation plan has been adopted, written notification is provided to the property owners and public entities. Current public services provided to the area are inventoried, and a service plan is developed for a proposed annexation, and two public hearings are held. The area must be annexed by the 37th month. If the annexation is not completed, the City may not annex the area for five years.

US 281 NORTH (Residential)

The US 281 North residential area is proposed to be placed in a three-year Municipal Annexation Plan. This 11 square mile area contains primarily residential and vacant properties. This action will need to occur to negotiate a non-annexation agreement to correspond with the expiration of the Lumbermen’s Investment Corporation non-annexation. The proposed effective date to consent to voluntary annexation is 2034. Once a municipal annexation plan has been adopted, written notification is provided to the property owners and public entities. Current public services provided to the area are inventoried, a service plan is developed and two public hearings are held. Bexar County Commissioners Court will appoint five representatives to negotiate the terms of the non-annexation agreement, called a “Services in Lieu of Annexation” Agreement. The agreement would be considered by the Planning Commission for recommendation and City Council for approval. The anticipated City Council consideration date for a “Services in Lieu of Annexation” Agreement is February 2017.
