2016 Garner ETJ Requests

2016_etjThe Town of Garner is requesting permission from Wake County to amend its extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ) as follows:

  • Extend: 7,153 acres (11.2 sq. mi.)
  • Relinquish:    454 acres (0.7 sq. mi.)   
  • NET:     6,699 acres (10.5 sq. mi.)

This request in its entirety is depicted geographically in this map.

The Town of Garner requests approval from the Wake County Board of Commissioners for an extension of the Town’s extraterritorial planning jurisdiction (ETJ).  The Town of Garner has not requested an extension of its ETJ since 1988, shortly before Wake County adopted its first extension criteria.  Since that time, Garner has undergone a considerable amount of growth, nearly doubling its 1990 population of 14,967.  Today, the Town has seen its publicly managed water and sewer infrastructure gradually expand beyond the core area roughly bounded by Timber Drive and the City of Raleigh corporate limits, and within the next 10 years, highway 540 will push from Holly Springs through the southern fringe of Garner to Interstate 40.  With these critical infrastructure improvements coming on the near horizon, we believe that these targeted future growth areas need to be within our ETJ so that we can administer the Town’s land use regulations as well as adequately plan infrastructure improvements to accommodate the anticipated urban growth in this area.
