UF Health Shands - SW 13th Street Voluntary Annexation Petitions For 8.98+/- Acres of Property On SW 13th Street (B)



This is the acceptance of voluntary annexation petitions, giving staff authorization to begin research and initiate the voluntary annexation process under state statute. Two public hearings before the City Commission with two opportunities for public comment will take place before the annexation becomes effective. The total annexation area is approximately 8.98+/- acres and is located on the northeast corner of SW 13th Street and SW Williston Road.


In order to annex these parcels into the City limits, the owners must submit a petition to the City of Gainesville for voluntary annexation. Staff has reviewed the requirements of the Municipal Annexation or Contraction Act (Chapter 171, Florida Statutes). This area meets the requirements of the Act and is appropriate for annexation.


Strategic Connection

This item is connected to Goal 5: “Best in Class” Neighbor Services in the City’s Strategic Plan.


Fiscal Note

The City Commission: 1) receive the petitions for annexation and make findings that it contains the signature of the property owners or authorized agents; 2) authorize the Mayor to provide notice to the Board of County Commissioners; 3) direct the City Manager to analyze the area; and 4) authorize the City Attorney to prepare and the City Clerk to advertise ordinances relating to the annexation of the area, if appropriate.
