Why does the City want to annex our land?

A municipality may wish to annex land to ensure sound urban development and accommodation to growth as well as ensure that municipal services can be provided to those areas. A municipality can only annex land that is contiguous with a part of the boundary of the municipality. A city might wish to annex land to clean up irregular boundaries and eliminate enclaves. A municipality will also annex land at the request of the property owner.

Please call 321-433-8684 for more information about initiating the annexation process, and contact the City's Planning Department at 321-433-8501 for P&Z related inquiries.
