Community Development

The City reviews all annexation requests to ensure the land being annexed meets the City's goals for growth, no county islands are created, and public services are available to the area.  The State allows non-voluntary annexations to take place if 80% of the land being annexed is voluntary.  All territory annexed into the City of Cedar Rapids is assigned a zone district classification within ninety (90) days afterannexation. Annexations are approved by the City and the State.

Applications can be submitted to the Community Development Department at any time.
