Public hearings held for voluntary annexations of tracts adjacent to Sun City development

City Council held public hearings July 8 and 22 for two voluntary annexations, which could add nearly 1,200 acres to the size of Sun City.

Although no plans have been filed with the city, Sun City developers are seeking annexation for two tracts including 406.3 acres near Hwy. 195 and Sun City Boulevard to be known as Sun City Queen Tract, and 768.9 acres near CR 245 and Ronald Reagan Boulevard to be known as Sun City Somerset Hills Tract.

The first reading of the annexation was scheduled for Aug. 12. The second reading is scheduled for Aug. 26.

City Council approved a utility services agreement for the Queen Tract at its June 10 meeting, and discussions about development standards and a possible planned unit development agreement will be brought back to City Council at a later date. The utility agreement is projected for 760 living units, according to a City Council document.

Plans for the Somerset Hills Tract will also be brought back to council at a later date; however, according to a City Council document, city staffers anticipate the property will be developed similarly to the existing Sun City development.
