On October 3, 2006, the Fort Collins City Council adopted on second reading Ordinance No. 137, 2006, (the "Annexation Ordinance"), which annexed to the City property known as the Southwest Enclave Annexation. The Southwest Enclave consists of approximately 2.7 square miles, generally bordered on the north by Harmony Road, on the south by Trilby Road, on the west by South Taft Hill Road, and extending approximately one-quarter mile east of College Avenue. On November 9, 2006, a petition signed by a sufficient number of registered electors was submitted to the City Clerk seeking the repeal of the Annexation Ordinance. On December 19, 2006, the City Council referred the Annexation Ordinance to the registered electors of the City at this election, as permitted by the City Charter. Shall the Annexation Ordinance be repealed?
