What are the benefits of annexation for current residents?
With the annexation of Greatwood and New Territory, and expected expansion of the City’s tax base, both future and current residents will gain benefits in the additional revenue gained to help fund City projects. As this annexation has been planned to have a net neutral impact to the City’s finances, no City taxes will be used to implement annexation.
