Discuss with City Planning
Schedule a meeting with the Planning Division staff to discuss the feasibility of annexing/attaching property to the City of Madison.
- An accurate description of the subject property prepared by a registered land surveyor that includes the legal description of the lands proposed to be added to the City and a scale map depicting the same.
- A petition stating the intent of the property owner(s) to annex/attach to the City. The petition shall also include the population of the lands to be added to the City and the presence of any buildings on that site.
In most cases, City staff will share a draft of these materials with staff from other agencies to get their feedback prior to the property owner(s) proceeding further. This review allows the City to ensure that the annexation/attachment materials are in acceptable form and allows various City departments to offer preliminary comments to the property owner before proceeding with their formal petition.
