In unanimous votes Thursday, the City Commission gave final approval to two ordinances scheduling annexation referendums for April.

The city is eyeing two unincorporated areas of voting precinct 22 that are separated by an area of the precinct in the city limits.

The smaller, northern piece of the precinct consists primarily of the Rustlewood subdivision and the Magnolia Place apartment complex.

The southern area targeted for annexation is generally bounded by Northwest 43rd Street to the east, Northwest 63rd Street to the west, Northwest 39th Avenue to the north and Northwest 23rd Avenue to the south.

The referendums will go to voters in those areas on April 9.

In November, the city's latest annexation referendum failed, with more than 90 percent opposition.
