K-town Planners Support Annexations
August 6, 2008 - The Knightstown Plan Commission has agreed to recommend that the Knightstown Town Council annex four properties, three located south and one located north of current town boundaries.
The commission voted at a meeting July 15 in favor of the annexation of properties owned by Rodney Lingenfelter (516 S. Washington St.), Lisa Cook (7159 W. County Line Rd.) and Wayne Terry (571 or 573 S. Jefferson St. - to be determined by the U.S. Post Service). At its July 29 meeting, the commission also voted in favor of annexing property owned by Ashley Smoot (7830 W. CR 850-S) across the street from Knightstown Elementary.
During last week's meeting, Plan Commission member Erma Keller was asked to put the commission's recommendations regarding these four properties in writing, for presentation at the town council's Aug. 21 meeting. The town council will be required to hold a public hearing on the proposed annexations and pass an ordinance before they can take effect.
"These might be … the easiest four annexations we've had," Steve Nelson, a member of both the town council and the plan commission, said at last week's meeting.
Cook, Lingenfelter, Terry and Smoot have all agreed to be voluntarily annexed into the town. If approved by the town council, the annexations of those properties could also permit the involuntary annexation of another property at 515 S. Washington St.
Terry's property is currently zoned by the county for agricultural use, and will retain that classification once annexed. Terry has told the commission that after being annexed, he plans to petition the town to have the property rezoned for business.
