Text of measure
||Charter Amendment Requiring All Annexations To Be Approved By Voters
The question on the ballot:
|| Shall the City amend the City Charter to require all annexations to be approved by the City’s voters?
The Charter requires voter approval
for the annexation of land outside the Metropolitan
Service District Urban Growth Boundary. The Charter
also specifies that all land proposed for annexation
requires approval by the majority of the City’s voters.
The proposed charter amendment makes it clear that
all annexations have to be approved by the City’s
voters, except for annexations mandated by law.
