Georgian Circle property annexed into city
A home previously located in unincorporated New Castle County is now part of Newark after city council voted Monday night to annex the property into the city.
Sandra and Richard Czerner own the 0.89-acre property at 1 Georgian Circle in Christine Manor but are try- ing to sell it. In order to do so, they need to update the old septic system and prefer to connect to the public sanitary sewer system in Newark.
The Czerners asked coun- cil to annex the property into the city and rezone it as RH (single-family residential detached), which has a minimum half-acre lot size and corresponds to the zoning designation the city has pre- viously applied to annexed parcels in Christine Manor.
Their proposal received a positive recommendation from the planning commission last month with the condition that city leaf col- lection, snow removal and refuse collection are not provided. If city electric service is provided, it will be at the property owner’s expense.
The annexation was approved unanimously.
