If I do not sign a Service and Annexation Agreement, can my property still be annexed?

Yes, the city uses the Oregon law to determine what land is potentially subject to annexation. Your land may become part of a larger area that may be annexed under a triple majority annexation, where lands representing the majority of the area, the majority of the value, and a majority of the population can be annexed to the city with consent of the City Council and approval by the city voters. You may also be annexed if your land is part of a larger group of lands that are surrounded on all sides by land that is annexed to the city. This island annexation would be subject to a City Council vote, and a vote of city residents.
