Explanation
BACKGROUND: The City of Columbus (“City”) and Perry Township entered into an Annexation Agreement on August 19, 2020 authorized by ordinance 0332-2021 passed July 20, 2020 (the “Agreement”). The Agreement provides clarity regarding future growth areas for both jurisdictions by identifying Perry Township territory eligible for centralized water and sewer service and resolving issues caused by “overlapping parcels” that lie within both Perry Township and Columbus. The Agreement resolves overlapping parcels through a combination of detachment and boundary conformance and designates certain parcels, both overlapping parcels and non-overlapping parcels that are adjacent to Perry Township, as eligible for detachment in accordance with the terms of the Agreement should the owner of such parcel elect to detach. Ohio Revised Code section 709.38 requires the assent of the legislative authority of the municipal corporation from which the territory is being detached in an ordinance passed for that purpose. The City assents to the detachment of parcels identified in the Agreement as detachment parcels in the event that the owner of a parcel so identified elects to detach, and this legislation memorializes that assent. The detachment parcels are shown on the attachment to this legislation. Pursuant to the Agreement, upon detachment Perry Township will not be required to assume any existing indebtedness or make any payments to the City as set forth in Ohio Revised Code section 709.38.

FISCAL IMPACT: There is no fiscal impact from the Agreement.
