Common Annexation Issues in Development

OnDemand Webinar (84 minutes)

Learn about the latest annexation issues and trends in development.

Zoning is often considered the matter of first concern when pursuing a development. But one must first determine whose zoning regulations and procedures will apply, and this is the annexation question. This topic will help you understand key factors affecting developments faced with the annexation question. Not only will you be able to identify and address critical issues arising in the annexation and development context, but this information will provide strategies for achieving development goals when there are competing developments, or competing municipalities, that could impact a development. Effectively utilizing annexation strategies will help establish a sound foundation for the overall entitlement process for a development
