Presentation Transcript

  1. Potential Annexations of the Municipalities within Alachua County • Team 1 • Anthony Lau • Cameron Kovach • Natalie Bristol • Jonathan Baker

  2. Main Goal • To potentially expand the jurisdiction of current municipalities within Alachua County through the annexation of tax parcels that would both benefit county residents, local businesses, and city governments.

  3. Scope and Characteristics • Alachua County • 9 municipalities • 969.12 sq mi. • Landlocked • 227,120 people • Home to the U. of Florida • Abundant natural areas.

  4. Background • Great place to live for individuals, families, and retirees. • Good economy and steady growth. • Increasing number of unincorporated communities. • Potential impediment to city growth. • Need to balance tax base and diversify employment opportunities.

  5. Political Criteria • Florida Law Code Section 171.0413 - Boundaries and Annexation Procedures • Areas must be contiguous. • No islands or peninsulas. • No overlaps with other municipalities. • No dividing of parcels owned by a single landowner. • An approval vote of city members and people in the proposed land to be annexed.

  6. Political Criteria Cont. • The Alachua County Boundary Adjustment Act of 2007 • Unique to Alachua County. • Set aside reserve areas in which only the corresponding municipality can annex property. • All other areas open to joint planning between cities.
