Section 200. Legislative review

3 AAC 110.200. Legislative review

Territory that meets the annexation standards specified in 3 AAC 110.160 - 3 AAC 110.195 may be annexed to a borough by the legislative review process if the commission also determines that any one of the following circumstances exists:

(1) the territory manifests a reasonable need for borough government that can be met most efficiently and effectively by the annexing borough;

(2) the territory is an enclave surrounded by the annexing borough;

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

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

(5) residents or property owners within the territory receive, or may be reasonably expected to receive, directly or indirectly, the benefit of borough government without commensurate tax contributions, whether these 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;

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

(7) repealed 5/19/2002;

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

(9) annexation of the territory will enhance the extent to which the existing borough meets the standards for incorporation of boroughs, as set out in the Constitution of the State of Alaska, AS 29.05, and 3 AAC 110.045 - 3 AAC 110.065;

(10) 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.
