Annexation for Municipalities


Governments engaged in long-term planning often consider annexation. For political and fiscal reasons, it is a path that is difficult to undertake. However, Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP has significant experience counseling cities and towns through this multi-faceted and complex process. We guide city, county and other municipal government elected officials through a wide-range of matters including:

  • Fiscal impact (additional revenue, expenses, debt)
  • Property analysis
  • Service impact
  • Streets and roads assessments
  • Tax abatements
  • Tax burdens
  • Utilities impact
  • Zoning classifications

We work closely with our clients to analyze each community’s impact studies to determine if annexation is a viable option. If the client decides to proceed, our attorneys help them avoid the pitfalls and craft favorable annexation agreements. We consider all issues that may arise including:

  • Appeals by homeowners
  • Drafting appropriate ordinances
  • Fiscal planning
  • Impact on citizen representation
  • Public hearings and notices of public hearings

Our knowledgeable attorneys stay current on any developments to Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio statutes, such as the significant changes to Indiana Code 36-4-3. We believe in an innovative, proactive approach to help our clients meet and exceed their goals.
