Overview: The Town received a voluntary petition on October 15, 2019 from Habitat for Humanity of Orange County and from Barbara and Donald Levine to annex 33.72 acres of land into the Town of Chapel Hill corporate limits. The Town Clerk reviewed and determined this is a valid petition.


Recommendation(s):
That the Council schedule a public hearing on November 20, 2019 to consider annexation of property at Sunrise Road and Ginger Road.

Additional Information
* North Carolina General Statute 160A-31(c) requires the Town to set a public hearing for annexation upon receiving a valid petition for land contiguous to Town boundaries.
* This is a voluntary petition to annex property that is also going through the development review process. Habitat for Humanity has submitted a Conditional Zoning application for this site known as Weavers Grove Community, which would include 219 dwelling units with various amenities.

Fiscal Impact/Resources: Annexation of this area would include it in the Town's corporate limits. Properties could then receive the full range of services provided by the Town of Chapel Hill. Annexation would also require a one-time payment to offset long-term debt of the volunteer fire department. Staff will provide a fiscal impact assessment at the November 20, 2019 public hearing.
