Agenda Title:

13AN004 - Petition for De-Annexation


The applicant has submitted a petition to exclude a 40 acre parcel from the Rapid City municipal boundary. The parcel was annexed in 2005 as part of the overall development of a sewer lift station located on the property and the associated gravity sewer main and force main located on the adjacent property immediately north. The property is located south of Country Road between West Nike Road and 143rd Avenue. Currently, the City’s sewer lift station, located within a Permanent Utility Easement, is the only structure on the property. Any proposed platting for purposes of transferring any portion of the property will require annexation before approval of a Preliminary Subdivision Plan, per the Council Resolution dated May, 1983. Staff’s recommendation is to deny based on the $19.8 million identified and expended by the City to provide utility services to this and surrounding properties.
