April 25, 2019 City Council Regular Meeting
20. Motion to Approve Annexation of 6.64 Acres on Canebrake Road Near South Gateway Boulevard (Petitioner: Baps Savannah, LLC.)
Strategic Priority
Economic Strength And Poverty Reduction

The City of Savannah received an annexation petition for two contiguous parcels with an aggregate of approximately 6.64 acres located on Canebrake Road near South Gateway Blvd. The parcels are owned by BAPS Savannah LLC. The land under petition is contiguous to existing City territory and therefore can be annexed by ordinance adopted by City Council. As required by State law, Chatham County has been informed of receipt of this petition.

Annexation is being sought by the owner to gain access to the municipal utilities provided by the City. The owner desires to gain access to these services on in-city terms. The cost of providing water and sewer service to the parcel will be fully covered by connection fees and service fees levied by the City for providing service. The current and proposed future use of the property is a religious temple. The development of a gymnasium facility on the property is planned.



David Maxwell, Chief Financial Officer
Financial Impact
It is anticipated that the City will receive $1,656 annually in property taxes upon annexation of both parcels.
