Consideration and Possible Action Regarding a Request to Apply for Annexation of Real Property in the Vicinity of Easy Street and Vulture Mine Road as well as a General Discussion on Possible Future Annexations - Steve Boyle, Community Development Director
Various property owners along the unincorporated area of Easy Street have expressed interest in being annexed into the Town of Wickenburg. Some of the reasons for the request is for improved services such as Police, Building Safety and potentially lower property taxes. There are currently no roadway right-of-ways in the proposed area therefore the Town would not assume responsibility for any roadway maintenance. The area consists of approximately 122 acres and for the most part it is built out. The preliminary survey results conducted by a resident proponent of the annexation shows that 15 of the 26 property owners desire to be annexed into the Town. 

In order for the annexation to be successful there will need to be more than 50% of the owners and property value that consent to be annexed. The annexation would also include the Meadows Ranch facility which is located on Cherokee Lane and abuts the Easy Street property owners. 

Staff generally request from the Council support for the annexation before the actual application since there are fees to apply and a legal survey necessary. All the costs for the application will be assumed by the applicant. After the completed annexation application, staff will begin the process for annexation and a public hearing will be conducted in the future for any input to the Council. 

Staff wants to also have a general conversation regarding possible future annexation areas.
Direction to Staff on the Proposed Annexation
