On May 15, 2018, representatives of the property owners Bloomfield Homes, L.P. submitted an application for full-purpose annexation. The 280.6 acres is situated in Tarrant County within the City of Fort Worth extraterritorial jurisdiction, north of Cleburne Crowley Road and west of Old Cleburne Crowley Junction Road, see map exhibit A. The proposed annexation area is currently vacant land. The property is proposed for the development 1,061 Single-Family detached lots with two Neighborhood Commercial tracts.
The proposed voluntary annexation abuts 7.263 acres of county rights-of-way. Under Section 43.106 of the Texas Local Government Code "a municipality that proposes to annex any portion of a county road or territory that abuts a county road must also annex the entire width of a county road and the adjacent right-of-way on both sides of the county road." The annexation of the 7.263 acres is the required rights-of-way portion of the county roads.
City Plan Commission voted, on June 27th, to approve the recommendation to the City Council for the full-purpose annexation of case AX-18-003. This proposed owner-initiated annexation has one companion case. The related zoning case (ZC-18-112) was heard by the Zoning Commission on August 8, 2018, and the commission voted to recommend approval of "A-5" One-Family and "E" Neighborhood Commercial districts by City Council.
The proposed uses were considered while assessing the financial impact to the General Fund. The city tax revenue is expected to have a positive fiscal impact over the next 10 years after the proposed development is built. Based on the operating costs projected from the Police, Code Compliance and Transportation and Public Works Departments, the fiscal impact shows a slightly negative annual effect to the General Fund for the first year, but will have a positive impact thereafter. Therefore, due to the ability of the area to meet the City's criteria for full-purpose annexation, Staff recommends approval of the requested owner-initiated annexation, AX-18-003.
If annexed for full-purposes the area will become part of COUNCIL DISTRICT 6.
This M&C does not request approval of a contract with a business entity.
