Development annexation in Willow Park delayed

(Continued)

“We cannot move on if you don’t go ahead and set the annexation,” Stark said.

Neverdousky said he sees the issue of annexation as a question of whether the city wanted the property to remain in the county where they have no control over development.

Council member Gene Martin initially moved to approve the annexation, saying he didn’t expect it to pass based on prior discussion but believed the council was setting a bad precedent for future developers.

The motion was seconded by council member Brian Thornburg. However, both men removed their motions after being told by city staff that there was an issue with the annexation boundaries and how they would affect the proposed road.

City Attorney Rider Scott told council members that the city could annex what was presented and later pick up the additional 2,000 square feet or go through the process again with an amended annexation application with the correct measurements.
