Section 140. Legislative review

3 AAC 110.140. Legislative review

Territory that meets the annexation standards specified in 3 AAC 110.090 - 3 AAC 110.135 may be annexed to a city by the legislative review process if the commission also determines that any one of the following circumstances exists:

(1) the territory is an enclave surrounded by the annexing city;

(2) the health, safety, or general welfare of city residents is or will be endangered by conditions existing or potentially developing in the territory, and annexation will enable the city to regulate or control the detrimental effects of those conditions;

(3) the extension of city services or facilities into the territory is necessary to enable the city to provide adequate services to city residents, and it is impossible or impractical for the city to extend the facilities or services unless the territory is within the boundaries of the city;

(4) residents or property owners within the territory receive, or may be reasonably expected to receive, directly or indirectly, the benefit of city government without commensurate tax contributions, whether these city benefits are rendered or received inside or outside the territory, and no practical or equitable alternative method is available to offset the cost of providing these benefits;

(5) annexation of the territory will enable the city to plan and control reasonably anticipated growth or development in the territory that otherwise may adversely impact the city;

(6) repealed 5/19/2002;

(7) annexation of the territory will promote local self-government with a minimum number of government units;

(8) annexation of the territory will enhance the extent to which the existing city meets the standards for incorporation of cities, as set out in AS 29.05 and 3 AAC 110.005 - 3 AAC 110.042;

(9) the commission determines that specific policies set out in the Constitution of the State of Alaska or AS 29.04, 29.05, or 29.06 are best served through annexation of the territory by the legislative review process.
