Hearing is next step in Whitefish annexation proposal
The city of Whitefish is moving forward with the annexation of 22 acres of contiguous land that includes Park Knoll Estates, and the next step is a public hearing tonight before the Whitefish City Council.
On Nov. 5 the council passed a resolution of intent to annex the Park Knoll neighborhood, and during a 20-day comment period the city did not receive any timely written comments supporting or opposing the annexation, according to City Manager Adam Hammatt’s council report.
In 1989 the Park Knoll Water Association asked the city to extend water service to the subdivision, located on Whitefish’s south side, west of U.S. 93. The city agreed to extend water to the development, conditioned on property owners waiving their right to protest annexation at the point when Park Knoll became contiguous to city limits.
The city will collect an additional 2.36 million.
The estimated overall capital cost of the treatment plant upgrade is projected to be $18.4 million.
The council meets at 7:10 p.m. at Whitefish City Hall.
