In a special meeting called Dec. 17, the Edgerton City Council approved an annexation between 199th and 215th and Gardner Rd. to Moonlight.
There were seven parcels annexed; of those two were at the southwest corner of 207th and Gardner Rd. and the second just south of the intersection.
“No development plans at this point,” said Kara Banks, public information officer. “This is just the annexation. Any rezoning of the property has statutory requirements for notification and public hearings.”
The annexation was a “consent to annex,” requested by the land owners. The area is zoned agricultural, and there are no plans to rezone currently on file.
“This was a voluntary annexation, meaning the property owners requested that the City of Edgerton consider their annexation. Edgerton has never forced property owners to annex since I have been mayor, and we don’t intend to start now. Annexation simply changes the jurisdiction of the property. Any other changes, such as zoning or development, would require future public action,” said Donald Roberts, Edgerton mayor.
