Annexation Information

Find out about the Pinnacle Peak County Island Annexation initiative.

Annexation is a two step process.  The first step is to request annexation into the City.  Once the request has been received, City staff will do a preliminary analysis and recommendation.  The request will then be considered by the City Council.  If the Council elects to proceed, City staff will begin the annexation process. 

In July of 2001, the City Council adopted an Annexation Policy for the City of Peoria.  The purpose of the policy is to provide the City Council with the necessary information in order to make an informed annexation decision. The “Citizen Annexation Manual” is designed to provide the citizen with general information about the annexation process.

Annexations can bring citizens the following benefits:

• Becoming part of a City that is a unit of government designed and equipped to provide urban services in a cost-effective manner.

• A voice in the affairs of the City.  By being a citizen you are eligible to run for City office and serve on citizen Boards and Commissions.

• City water at lower in-city rates and dependable sewer systems to most areas of the City.

• Excellent quality professional fire and paramedic service.

• Well-trained professional police force.

• Regular sanitation pick-up at low cost.

• Environmental and life-style protection through zoning and building ordinances.

• Dedicated streets maintained by the City.

• Access to numerous parks and recreation facilities.

The city of Peoria, as well as many other cities and towns, are motivated to annex unincorporated areas because:

• Creates logical service areas for the provision of effective and efficient local government services at urban levels.

• It will increase the assessed valuation of the city.

• City ad valorem taxes will be assessed and collected based upon assessed valuation of property within the area annexed.

• The increase in population will increase the city’s share of state sales tax distributed to cities based on population.

• The increase in population will increase the city’s share of motor vehicle fuel taxes distributed to cities.

• City sales tax will be collected in the annexed areas.

• City luxury taxes, if any, will be collected in the annexed areas.

• Revenue-sharing of state income tax, if any, will be apportioned to cities on a population basis.

• Federal revenue-sharing and federal grants, aid, projects, and programs are largely based on population and need.

• The increase in population will increase the city’s share of the Local Transportation Assistance  Fund (Lottery) distributed to cities.
