Annexation

Annexation

The Planning Department prepares feasibility studies for all areas considered for annexation by the city. Annexations proposals are initiated at the request of property owners or they may be city initiated. The Planning Staffcompletes a Plan of Services for all annexation areas. A Plan of Services specifies when and what services the city will provide to annexed areas. If an area is annexed, annual reports on the progress of completing Plans of Services are prepared by the Planning Staff and submitted to the City Council. Once an area is annexed the Planning Department is responsible for completing population certifications which are submitted to the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development.
