Columbus Avenue residents oppose southside annexation

Council to consider 2 requests on properties

(Continued)

Winkler said the requested voluntary annexation will undergo a high level of scrutiny by the City Council because of the opposition from neighboring property owners.

“We want to protect the property owners,” he said.

Eventually the Anderson Plan Commission will be asked to rezone the property, if the annexation into the city limits is approved.

The council will be considering a second request for a voluntary annexation of 38 acres at the southeast corner of Indiana 232 and Mounds Road from Jonathan Cook.

Winkler said there is no opposition to the annexation, which is located to the south of the Madison County Juvenile Detention Center. The property is currently used for farming.

The fiscal plan for the proposed annexation shows no costs to the city. It indicates the property owner will pay to extend water and sewer lines to the site, expected to be completed this year.
