Springfield Development Code Amendments: Annexations
This project is a continuation of work related to a larger Springfield Development Code Update project that has been ongoing since 2018 involving a phased plan to update the entire Springfield Development Code (SDC). The annexation section of the Springfield Development Code is changing to: Clarify the application and initiation types: It amends SDC 5.7.125 for ‘Initiation Method Requirements and Application Requirements’ to clarify what documents are required for the various annexation applications; Improve efficiency and timeliness for staff and officials to process applications and make a decision: Changes to SDC 5.7.115 ‘Review’ provide an option where an annexation does not require a public hearing; Remove redundant terms in SDC 5.7.113 and address appropriate processes in SDC 5.7.115.
