AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

To:                     Honorable Mayor and Members of Town Council

 

Through:                     Bill Detweiler, Director, Development Services

 

From:                     Donna Ferguson, Senior Planner, Development Services

 

Title:                     Resolution Approving the Ridge Estates Annexation and Development Agreement

 

 

Executive Summary

 

Maple Grove Land, LP, the property owner and applicant, is requesting to enter into an Annexation and Development Agreement (DA) for property known as Ridge Estates, which is located south of Crystal Valley Ranch, east of Bell Mountain Ranch and north of Sellers Creek Ranch (Figure 1).

 

The property is currently under consideration for annexation and zoning under separate applications.  If the property is approved for annexation and zoning, Maple Grove Land, LP must subsequently enter into a Development Agreement with the Town to define the obligations of the property owner and the Town as they relate to the mutual interest in annexation and zoning.

 

A DA is a legally binding contract between the property owner and the Town, which requires a public hearing before Town Council who shall review and make a decision upon the proposed DA.

 

Budget Impact

 

The proposed Development Agreement will generate review fees.

 

Staff Recommendation

 

Staff recommends approval of the Ridge Estates Annexation and Development Agreement.

 

Proposed Motion

 

I move to approve the Resolution as introduced by title, first and final reading.
