Annexation is a process used by cities and townships to increase their own size through the acquisition of adjacent land. Once land is annexed, the city or township acquiring it extends service to the new citizens. Unincorporated areas frequent seek to be annexed to enhance property values and increase the number of services made available to residents.
At Klun, we can help municipalities decide whether annexation is the right decision for them and help those being annexed decide whether annexation if the right move at this time. We can also assist in the preparation of documents and the negotiation and can also represent clients in annexation proceedings. Orderly annexation lets the city and township address annexation more cooperative and encourages joint planning. We can assist in these negotiations. We can assist with the Municipal Board and the petition process.
