Jordan Ramis pc. Attorneys at law

Planned Development

Mixed Density Residential

Problem

  • Jordan Ramis client wanted to include 90-plus acres inside the urban growth boundary (UGA).
  • There were no urban services nearby.
  • There was no vision for the property.
  • The property needed to be annexed, zoned, and infrastructure planning put in place.
  • A public elementary school was needed for the area.
  • Legal challenges to annexation and development entitlement were inevitable.
  • There were severe transportation mitigation issues.

Solution

  • The Jordan Ramis team guided the developer to create a vision for the property to promote inclusion within the boundary.
  • Jordan Ramis communicated the vision to the city and county and gained inclusion into the UGA.
  • The property was annexed, zoning was developed, infrastructure planning was completed, and our client entered into a 10-year development agreement with the city.
  • Jordan Ramis guided our client to purchase additional property to resolve transportation issues.  The additional property could also be used for additional development.

Results

  • Approval was secured for a master-planned, mixed-density residential development with more than 400 units.
  • An elementary school was included within the development.
