Annexation into the city is currently voluntary. Annexation typically occurs when a property owner proposes to develop a property that is within the UGB but is not within the city limits and their annexation application is approved. There has been no discussion of requiring properties to annex if they are brought into the UGB. To annex into the city limits, property must:
- border the city limits and
- be within 300’ of services (water, wastewater, streets), or
- be willing to extend those services to the project site at the developer’s cost
