What is the process?
Annexation proposals like this one must follow a state-mandated process, defined in the Colorado Revised Statutes.
That process begins with Town Council determining if the annexation application meets statutory requirements and is eligible to start the annexation process. Then, public hearings can begin in order to determine if the property should be annexed to the Town.
To aid in Council’s decision-making, staff reviews the project and studies the potential impacts on Town roads, water and overall levels of service. Input is also gathered from other agencies such as Douglas County, local service providers, nearby Homeowners Associations and the Colorado Department of Transportation. The Town’s goal is to ensure every application matches the community's vision and makes technical sense.
Once the review process is complete, the applicant must go through a series of public hearings including before Planning Commission and Town Council.
