Debate about Knollwood annexation has been going on since the 1920s. In the last 30 years, there have been three annexation/incorporation efforts involving Knollwood:
We're often asked whether Knollwood could be forcibly annexed by any of the surrounding municipalities; the short answer is "no." We've created a couple of flow charts depicting the means by which municipalities may initiate an annexation, and how an unincorporated area may ask for annexation.
At this point the surrounding municipalities are much more interested in the commercial properties that are still unincorporated. Residential properties generally cost more in services than they generate in property tax.
It is the policy of Knollwood Neighbors to keep residents informed of any possible annexation initiatives that may arise, but not to take a position on annexation. That way we can be relied on as an impartial source of information.
