Council Passes Annexation of Limestone Co Land

Madison City Council has passed annexation of unincorporated land in Limestone County, to support a development with a plan for infrastructure improvements and a new elementary school for Madison City Schools. 

Once developed, the land near Segers Road and Hardiman Road will provide important infrastructure for residents on the West side of Madison City limits with another East/West connection. The development will host 200 homes that attract a mix of families and retirees with green space and walking paths. 

The project was supported by the Board of Education and Superintendent Dr. Ed Nichols, as the expected growth in Madison will require an additional elementary school and additions to both Bob Jones and James Clemens High Schools. Funding sources for the school will come from the ½ cent sales tax for James Clemens, Madison County property taxes, Limestone County property and sales taxes, as well as Madison County TVA in luau of tax distribution. No further taxes are required of residents for this project. 

The City of Madison has not annexed property over 3 acres since 2016 and has followed the established Growth Policy. The strategic plan for the newly annexed land helps support controlled growth, while positively impacting our schools, Madison Utilities, and City overall.
