What is a non-annexation agreement?

A Non-annexation agreement offers the property owner the option to continue current use of land for agricultural, wildlife, or timber management.  Upon City discretion, non-annexation agreements can also be offered to non-agricultural, timber, or wildlife properties. The non-annexation agreement would allow the property to continue to be in the ETJ and delay annexation until the property is developed or the use is changed. Properties identified for non-annexation agreement offers will receive an option for non-annexation for 10 years (with no change in current use of the property) with the option to renew the non-annexation agreement for up to 45 years maximum.
