At its last meeting, the Leon County Board of County Commissioners voted not to object to the voluntary annexation of the Fallschase Development property.
The Commissioners met on Nov. 17 and agreed to the proposed voluntary annexation of the residential phases of the Fallschase planned unit development. The property being annexed is 82 acres of residential planned development located south of Buck Lake Road and east of the Weems neighborhood.
The property owners, RMDC, Inc., requested the annexation because the property is subject to the Fallschase Development Agreement (DA). The DA is an agreement between the Buck Lake Alliance (BLA), the Weems neighborhood, and the developers. The DA puts in place various infrastructure commitments from the developer including the construction of fully-signalized access at the Lagniappe Way entrance of the Fallschase property, completion of the widening at Buck Lake Rd/US 90 to add a third westbound left-turn lane, an extension of the four-lane segment of Buck Lake Road, and the construction of Acadian Boulevard to Weems Road.
The development agreement also authorizes up to 750,000 square feet of commercial development, 35,000 square feet of office development, and 1,514 residential dwellings. A total of 626 residential units have been approved for development and 208 of those units have been constructed. The Board followed the recommended action by approving the annexation agreement.
