Logical municipal boundaries enable cost-efficient service delivery for both city and county governments.

In many cases annexation is initiated by property owners wishing to develop their land or to gain one or more benefits provided by Hot Springs.  

In some instances (enclaves or “islands”), the city may initiate annexation.  In such cases, the city drafts an annexation ordinance which sets forth a schedule for providing services.

Questions about procedures or schedule can be directed to Planning & Development Director Kathy Sellman, (501) 321-6855.
