Annexation is the process of incorporating new land into the City limits. Annexation is necessary to bring areas on the edges of urban development into the City so that there can be an orderly extension of City services such as roads, water and sewer. Additionally, the City has limited authority to regulate development unless property is annexed before a project is initiated. Because land uses are not regulated in the county (per state law), if such properties remain outside the City limits, there are no land use requirements, design standards, or building permits required to protect neighboring properties. 
You may request voluntary annexation into the city limits by completing the process and forms in the packet below.

For more information regarding annexation, please contact the Community Development Department at:   (830) 931-4090.
