If I sign a Service and Annexation Agreement, when can I expect my property to be annexed?

The first time your property will be considered for annexation is within 1 year from the signing of the Service and Annexation Agreement (PDF). The City Council will consider such annexations, and may act to approve or disapprove. If approved by the City Council, the annexation is forwarded to Grants Pass voters for approval. If disapproved by the voters or by the City Council, your property will be placed on the listing for consideration of annexation annually.
