Plan Commission Orders Additional Information In Annexation Talks

The Culver Plan Commission revisited the possible annexation of land to the northwest of the Town, last night.

According to the discussion, the Plan Commission considered the possibility of bringing land between State Roads 10 and 17 under the Town’s limits up until September of last year.

Plan Commission President Barry McManaway says the land would be ideal for at least one of the Town’s goals.

“The point of this is, is that it would be part of the comprehensive plan,” says McManaway. “This property could make an opportunity for something to move forward as far as affordable housing.”

Discussions in the state Senate could potentially make annexing land slightly more difficult. McManaway says it may be crucial to annex the land prior to any future restrictions.

McManaway says the Town Council and Plan Commission will need to make a few considerations.

“The Town Council has to approve so they’re actually going to look at the cost versus the gain,” says McManaway. “I mean, this is something that goes with it anytime you annex.”

The Town would have three years to provide sewage and other items should annexation be approved.

Members did vote, however, to advise new Culver Town Manager Jonathan Leist to conduct research into the property and potentially contact landowners prior to making a recommendation to the Plan Commission.

The item will next be discussed in April.
