Type of Action Requested: Public Hearing

SUBJECT:
This request is for a public hearing on the proposed Annexation of +/-74.527 acres, comprised of one parcel and adjoining Rights of Way generally located north of Val Vista and east of Pinal Avenue. See attached Blank Annexation Petition with Map.
RECOMMENDATION:
At this time, the Council is only being asked to conduct a public hearing on the proposed Annexation.
DISCUSSION:
This is a request by RVi Planning on behalf of the landowner for the annexation of +/-74.527 acres. This area is a logical and appropriate annexation area regarding the current boundary of the City of Casa Grande.  This area meets all legal requirements for annexation as set forth in the Arizona Revised Statutes. A blank petition and associated annexation map (copy attached) were filed with the Pinal County Clerk and Recorder on August 11, 2021.    At this time, the Council is only being asked to conduct a public hearing on the proposed Annexation. This public hearing is conducted in compliance with the requirement in ARS 9-471.A to hold a public hearing within the last ten days of the thirty-day wait period that begins with the filing of the blank petition. In accordance with the statute, petition signatures may be obtained from the owners of the land proposed for annexation once the initial 30 wait period has elapsed from the date of filing the blank petition.  After signatures are collected, an Annexation Ordinance will be scheduled for Council consideration.  ARS 9-471.L requires that a city annexing an area adopt a zoning classification that permits densities and uses no greater than those permitted by the county immediately before the annexation.  To comply with this requirement staff is proposing that the annexed properties be initially zoned as Urban Ranch (UR) in conjunction with the annexation. UR (Urban Ranch) is the Casa Grande zone district that is most equivalent in terms of uses and density to the existing General Rural (GR) Pinal County zoning for the properties.  
FISCAL IMPACT:
An Infrastructure and Service Plan will be evaluated and presented in conjunction with the first reading of the annexation ordinance tentatively scheduled for the October 4th Council hearing.  
ALTERNATIVES:
No action required at this public hearing.
