City Council to vote on Harg annexation

Thursday, June 30, 2005 | 12:00 a.m. CDT; updated 6:39 a.m. CDT, Friday, July 18, 2008

Residents of Harg met with developer Billy Sapp Wednesday to sign a statement signaling they would not oppose his latest request to have the city annex more than 800 acres that he plans to develop east of Columbia.

Harg residents petitioned to block the Columbia City Council from voting on Sapp’s two previous requests to have land along Route WW annexed. The residents primarily worried about how the development would affect traffic on the state highway.

The statement of intent spells out expectations for the development and includes sections that address the maximum density of new development and the addition of shoulders on Route WW.

Both parties agree the document is not a legal contract. Some projects listed in the statement would require the cooperation of city or county agencies.

The City Council is scheduled to vote on Sapp’s request during its meeting on Tuesday, which begins at 7 p.m. in the council chambers.
