(2) existing or reasonably anticipated health, safety, and general welfare conditions;
(3) existing or reasonably anticipated economic development;
(4) adequacy of existing services;
(5) extraterritorial powers of the city to which the territory is proposed to be annexed and extraterritorial powers of nearby municipalities; and
(6) whether residents or property owners within the territory receive, or may be reasonably expected to receive, directly or indirectly, the benefit of services and facilities provided by the annexing city.
(b) Territory may not be annexed to a city if essential city services can be provided more efficiently and more effectively by another existing city or by an organized borough on an areawide basis or non-areawide basis, or through an existing borough service area.
