Title

Resolution to Approve the Valhalla Annexation, 9.8 Acres, 31, 50, 57, 77, 97, 98, 107, 145, 147, 151, 155, 159, 163 Valhalla Drive (CPC Recommendation:  Approval - 8 Yeas and 1 Nay)

Memorandum

Approval of this resolution will allow annexation of these properties from Pittsfield Township into the City.  The property is within the City’s water and sewer service area, and the current use is consistent with the adjacent zoning, land uses and master plan.  Council action on the proposed R4E (Multiple-Family District) zoning and associated Valhalla Ann Arbor site plan will be scheduled after the annexation process is complete.

 

The City Planning Commission, at its meeting of July 21, 2020 recommended approval of the request.

 

September 8 Update: The following Council questions and staff responses are listed below as an update to this memorandum:

 

Is the developer’s annexation request contingent on this proposal and the R4E zoning being accepted?

 

Response: No, the annexation request is an independent petition.

 

If City Council votes to annex the property, I’m assuming that is NOT approving any specific zoning request or implying anything with regard to zoning or a site plan - correct? If council votes to annex, what are the city’s subsequent requirements or obligations in terms of zoning once annexed (e.g. is the city guided by the Master Plan land use element)?

 

Response: That is correct, no action on zoning is implied or taken with the annexation. Even if it were desired, the City can’t take action to zone a property until it has been successfully annexed into the City. Staff recommends that a zoning district be applied to the property after annexation to ensure appropriate land use regulations are applied. Any zoning action should be made with consultation of the City’s Master Plan documents.
