The City has a two-step process for Annexation requests. Step One allows City Council to review the request and determine if it meets the City's Comprehensive Plan Goals and Policies. Approval of a Step One application does not mean that City Council will approve the annexation.
Step Two is a much more detailed look at the request. The City analysis the proposed annexation affects on the tax base, public education, police and emergency response services, transportation infrastructure, utilities, environmental protections, recreational services, and overall land use and development patterns.
The Step Two application also initiates the State's annexation process (Chapter 36 of Title 36 of the Official Code of Georgia). This process includes a highly regulated timeline for official notifications, public hearings, and an arbitration process between counties and cities.
