Annexation & Land Use

Annexation & Land Use

The Coalition of Greater Minnesota Cities supports substantive changes to the state’s annexation law that will lead to better land-use planning, energy conservation, greater environmental protection, fairer tax bases, and fewer conflicts between townships and cities. CGMC also supports technical annexation changes that have been agreed to by cities and townships.
