May 23 – City Council to hear petition to Annex land on East President Street

By Lou Phelps, Savannah Business Journal

May 23, 2017 - The City of Savannah has received an annexation petition for a 9.837 acres located on East President Street near Woodcock Road, currently undeveloped and owned by Mariner Brand Deptford, LLC.

The property will be the location of the Ellis Apartments, and is currently just outside the city limits, in Unincorporated Chatham County.  The land under petition is contiguous to existing City territory and therefore can be annexed by ordinance adopted by City Council, according to a City staff report. As required by state law the County has been informed of receipt of this petition, they state.

Annexation is being sought by the owner to gain access to the municipal utilities provided by the City on ‘in-city’ terms. The cost of providing water and sewer service to the parcel will be fully covered by connection fees and service fees levied by the City for providing service.

No action is required at this time other than acknowledgment of the petition receipt. Consideration of ordinances to annex the territory and to designate City zoning for the territory will be placed on a future agenda, according to David Maxwell, Chief Financial Officer for the City of Savannah.
