Explanation
BACKGROUND: This ordinance is being submitted to set forth the municipal services and zoning conditions the city of Columbus will provide upon annexation of a territory located in Prairie Township. An agreement between Columbus and the property owners stipulates that upon annexation by the City, a petition will be submitted to Franklin County in order to transfer the property to Montgomery Township per Section 503.07 of the Ohio Revised Code (ORC). The agreement, which was authorized by ordinance 0601-2017, applies only to the subject site. This ordinance is required by the ORC as enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Ohio. An annexation petition has been filed with Franklin County for this property. A service ordinance must be passed before the annexation meeting takes place before the Board of County Commissioners of Franklin County. Information regarding municipal services that would be available, should the subject site be annexed, has been compiled and is reflected in this ordinance. Should the petition be approved by the County Commissioners, a second City ordinance accepting the annexation will be required to complete the process. The time frames specified in the ORC require that this legislation be filed as emergency.

FISCAL IMPACT: The statement of municipal services and zoning conditions for a proposed annexation area has no fiscal impact. While provision of the stated services does represent cost to the City, annexation of land also has the potential to create revenue to the city. Ordinance 0601-2017 authorized a pre-annexation agreement between the City and property owner. This agreement addresses City payment to the Township as required by the ORC upon boundary conformance and subsequent reimbursement by the property owners.
