Public Hearing Information:

The Southern Illinois Airport Authority entered into a lease to construct a marijuana cultivation center on a parcel of land owned by the Authority.  During the design and construction phase of the project, the need for a sanitary sewer connection was expressed and the Southern Illinois Airport Authority approached the City of Carbondale to tie into an existing sewer main owned by the City.  The cultivation center is located outside of Carbondale City limits but within the City’s mile and one-half zoning jurisdiction. As per Resolution 95-R-62, no connection to the City utilities shall be approved outside of the City limits without an annexation agreement being entered into between the property owner and the City. The proposed annexation agreement between the City of Carbondale and the Southern Illinois Airport Authority satisfies this requirement.

  • The City agrees to connect all structures with sanitary sewer needs to the municipal sanitary sewer system.
  • The owners agree to annex the property to the City when the property becomes contiguous.
  • Attached for City Council review are the following:
    1.  A copy of the Annexation Agreement.
    2.  A location map.

Recommended Action:

 It is recommended that the City Council open and conduct a public hearing on the proposed annexation agreement between the City of Carbondale and the Southern Illinois Airport Authority.
