Three separate Orange County properties are being proposed to become part of the city of Ocoee.

Ocoee commissioners will hold the first readings of ordinances pertaining to the annexation and rezoning of three small, separate properties into the city of Ocoee during the Sept. 17 City Commission meeting. 

The first property is the Skipper property located at 1936 Adair St., and is approximately 1.01 acres. A single-family residence is currently on the property, and the applicant is seeking annexation to receive potable water connection with the city. If annexed into the city, the property would be rezoned from Orange County rural/agricultural to city of Ocoee low-density residential. 

The second property is a 0.51 acre parcel located 1557 Blackwood Avenue, and is identified as the Crews/Smeller property. This property also has a single-family residence located on it, and the applicant is seeking annexation because they are now eligible for annexation and already benefit from city potable water connection. The property is located within the proposed Ocoee-Orange County Joint Planning Area, and it is bordered by the city to the north. Upon annexation, the property will be rezoned to single-family dwelling.

The third and final property is a 2.80 parcel located on 8815 Hackney Prairie Road, and it also contains a single-family residence. This property also is located in the Ocoee-Orange County Joint Planning Area, and the applicant is seeking annexation as city-owned land. If annexed into the city, the property would be rezoned to general agricultural.

Any residents with questions or concerns may contact Ocoee City Hall at (407) 905-3100.
