Mandan Annexes Nearly 900 Acres

Posted: Updated:

The third time's a charm -- at least for some.  Mandan grows by nearly 900 acres tonight after the City Commission finds insufficient protest to halt annexation.

Earlier attempts in 2007 and this August failed after rural homeowners raised significant opposition.  This time, developers owning large pieces of land in Northwest Mandan are the force behind annexation, which brings with it city services such as paved streets, water and sewer.  Current homeowners voice concern over issues such as unknown special assessments and traffic safety.

"The developers have the luxury of being able to pass any of these special assessments onto the cost of their property that they're selling.  We don't have that luxury," says Nick Renner.  

However, City Administrator Jim Neubauer notes, "at the time a special assessment district would be created, those individuals in that assessment district area have the ability to protest that assessment and you can also do things in a financing resolution if that would go through."

The City says a future financing resolution might be able to alleviate some of the associated fees for existing homeowners.  Regarding traffic safety concerns, the City says they are looking to enhance 1806 road conditions.
