Annexation is a method by which a city or town extends and increases its corporate limits. The process is closely governed by Arizona state law. This is through Title 9, Chapter 4, Article 7, Arizona Revised Statutes.
Based on these laws, each property owner within a proposed annexation area is notified of the public hearing. Notifications are by mail, advertisement in the newspaper and posting of notices within the area to be annexed. A petition in favor of the annexation is required. Owners of one-half or more of the total assessed value and more that one-half of the owners must sign. This enables each property owner within the area to have a fair say in the annexation.
