This property was annexed in 2002 (Annexation Area #1).  The Land Use and Thoroughfare Plans for Annexation Area #1 were adopted by the City Council in February 2003 to guide development.  Water is provided to the site by Wellborn Water and electric by BTU.  A City sewer line is planned with the Steeplechase Sewer Impact Fee line, which was designed based upon the future land use assumptions.
