|UPDATING BOUNDARY MAPS|
LEGALITIES DISCUSSED 6-18-14 LMS
When the city approved a de-annexation and vacation of right-of-way request by John Little the action changed some property lines. Now, according to code, city maps must be updated to indicate the new boundaries.
City Attorney Fred Snook told the June 18 meeting of the Salmon City Council that the cost of a survey and new map is the responsibility of the petitioner. He said that initially Little thought any costs involved would be up to the city. He has since contacted Wade Surveying and arranged for the work to be done. Snook said that once the survey is competed and recorded the city can proceed with passing and recording the required de-annexation ordinance.
Mayor Leo Marshall said County Planning and Zoning Administrator Gary Goodman has asked the city to direct the City Planning and Zoning commission to consider the factors involved in renegotiating the area of city impact. Marshall said the city P&Z will have two months to return its recommendations as to a trade area, geographic factors and three areas that can reasonably be expected to be annexed into the city in the future.
Marshall said Goodman is asking the city to issue the directive so he can move forward on the area of impact updating process. Snook said that under the law the city is to tell the P&Z what factors to consider. He said the factors are outlined in the law so in essence this is just complying with the law. It was clarified that this has nothing to do with initiating an annexation action; it is simply a matter of finding agreement between the city and county as to area of impact boundaries. Councilmen Waidely and Hill said that based on meetings and public comments received by the county, the present area of impact will pretty much remain the same. The council unanimously passed a motion made by Rob Jackson to direct the City Planning and Zoning Commission to consider the three factors and make a recommendation on the area of city impact.
