Annexation is the process of changing city boundaries to bring adjacent unincorporated areas into an existing city, typically to provide urban services not presently available. Properties must be within the City boundary of the City of King City to receive City services.
Annexations initiated by the property owner(s)
Property owners within the City of King City Urban growth boundary (UGB) can initiate an annexation either through the statutory double majority petition process (majority of property owners and registered voters in the area to be annexed) or through the City-adopted expedited process.
Requests for the annexation of a single property are typically submitted through the City’s “Expedited Review Process for Uncontested Annexations and Service Extensions.” An expedited annexation requires the consent of 100 percent of the property owners; at least 50 percent of the electors within the territory requesting annexation; and no objections from necessary parties such as service districts or other city or county service bureaus.
Annexations initiated by the City of King City
King City Comprehensive Plan allows for the annexation of all areas within its UGB.
If the City decides to pursue annexations not initiated by a property owner. In that case, the City Council may adopt an intent to annex and direct staff to gather consent signatures for annexation in the declared area or pursue other annexation options available through State Statute, Metro, and the City code.
For unincorporated areas surrounded by the City of King City municipal limits, the City may pursue the “island method” of annexation, which does not require consent from the electors or property owners. See ORS 222.750.
