GOSHEN — The city of Goshen will hold a meeting with residents to discuss the development of economic improvements at the Orchard Subdivision, including the possibility of water and sewer annexation.
The meeting will be at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, July 10, in the Waterford Mennonite Church, which is at 65975 S.R. 15, Goshen.
Residents of the Orchard Subdivision sent a petition to the city asking for water and sewer services to be extended outside the city limits into their homes. However, the city will not extend utilities outside the city limits without an annexation, said Dustin Sailor, utilities engineer for the city.
Paperwork will be available at the meeting for people interested in signing the petition. In order for an annexation to happen, a majority of the residents must sign the petition and a majority of the assessed value property must be owned by those in favor of the annexation.
Orchard Subdivision is north of Kercher Road, between C.R. 21 and the Elkhart River, and roughly south of C.R. 36.
