The city of Washington, through its planning and zoning commission, is deeply engrossed in an annexation study. Members of the commission and other municipal officials are making progress on a plan that reflects what areas should be part of the city and what is practical in extending services in a reasonable time frame.

There never is complete agreement on annexation plans. It is impossible to please everybody. But for orderly growth annexation is necessary. Opponents often label any annexation as a land grab to enhance the city’s taxes, but too often they miss the point of the many advantages of being in a municipality. The one point often missed is that being in an incorporated area, property values increase because of the services available. Washington provides excellent services at reasonable rates.
