Annexation Plan — A document required by Texas Local Government Code, Section 43.052, identifying certain kinds of areas that a city intends to annex.
- The plan must identify any areas with 100 or more separate lots or tracts of land containing residential dwellings that the city intends to annex, unless more than 50 percent of the property owners request annexation.
- The plan may also identify other areas.
- Areas that are identified in the plan may only be annexed three years after the plan is adopted.
Annexation Program — An annually updated document identifying areas that the City wishes to consider for initiation of annexation during the succeeding five-year period. The annexation program expresses the City’s intent to consider specific areas for annexation, but is not legally binding. Inclusion of an area in the program does not obligate the City to annex that area, nor does exclusion of an area from the program prevent the City from annexing the area.
