June 10, 2021 City Council Regular Meeting
21. Approval for the Annexation of 12.34 Acres Located off Sweetwater Station Drive near Clubhouse Drive. The Property is Currently Vacant Land and the Owner Plans to Expand the Sweetwater Station Subdivision by Developing Approximately 60 Detached, Single-Family Homes on the Parcel.
Strategic Priority
Good Government

The City received an annexation petition for one parcel with an aggregate of 12.34 acres located adjacent to the Sweetwater Station subdivision. The parcel is located off Sweetwater Station Drive near Clubhouse Drive. 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, the County has been informed of receipt of this petition.

The property is currently vacant land and the owner plans to expand the Sweetwater Station subdivision by developing approximately 60 detached, single-family homes on the parcel. The property will be accessed from a City of Savannah public right-of-way and City of Savannah water and sewer service is available to serve the property. The owner desires to gain access to these utilities on in-city terms. The cost of providing water and sewer service will be fully covered by connection fees and service fees charged to benefiting parcels in the area.

Financial Impact
The estimated annual tax benefit from annexation of this property would be $54,000 annually. Estimated annual revenues from residential refuse fees would be $25,200 and estimated annual revenues from water and sewer charges would be $54,780. All of these estimates assume full build-out of 60 residential units.
