Annexation involves incorporating a property into the Kingsport City municipal limits. Considering that state law requirements affect the eligibility of a property for annexation, property owners are advised to contact Planning Staff and discuss their annexation intent before submission or a request.
As part of your application, upload a meets and bounds description of the property or a surveyor’s plat showing the specific property proposed for annexation. The request should include your name, mailing address, the tax map and parcel number (found on tax card), requested zoning, and reason for the request. There are no fees for annexation.
A request for annexation of a developed residential or commercial area should be accompanied by a petition signed by those property owners who favor the annexation of their properties.
The Planning Division will conduct a feasibility study of each annexation prior to Planning Commission consideration. All annexations are required to be reviewed by the Planning Commission and by the Board of Mayor and Aldermen as a resolution. At the time of annexation, the property will be zoned in accordance with City zoning regulations.
