Understanding Annexation

The friendly annexation process begins with the Zoning Administrator’s Office. This office will determine if your property is contiguous with the city limits and, therefore, is viable for annexation. If the property is contiguous, the City Clerk will guide you through the annexation process which includes: submitting a petition to the Mayor and Board of Aldermen; a public hearing; and final acceptance of the annexation by ordinance.

The entire process takes approximately six to eight weeks.
