A request to annex 22 acres along South Jeff Davis Drive into Fayetteville for a proposed single-family home subdivision was denied May 2 by the Fayetteville City Council.

The 22-acre subject property is located on the east side of the intersection at Helen Sams Parkway and South Jeff Davis Drive in unincorporated Fayette County.

The council heard the proposal as the Step 1 part of the two-part annexation process.

The conceptual site plan showed 46 single-family lots, with city staff noting that sewer capacity would not be an issue.

But for council members, the the annexation request was not what they were looking for.

All on the council believed the residential properties already approved would suffice for the time being.

“We need to develop the residential (lots) that are already permitted,” said Councilwoman Kathaleen Brewer, echoing the sentiments of others on the council.

The vote to deny the annexation request was 4-0. Councilman Scott Stacy was not at the meeting.
