How does the town annexation process work?
A property owner considering annexation should contact the Town Planning department to discuss the procedural requirements. Properties must be adjacent to the town boundaries and at least 25% of the voters in the area to be annexed must agree to the annexation. Once a petition is received, the Planning Commission reviews to determine consistency with the town’s Comprehensive Plan. A resolution is then prepared for the Town Board’s consideration and a public hearing process is initiated. The overall process generally takes between three to four months depending on the complexity of the annexation petition.
