Annexation Program & Application

Annexation is the means by which property owners in unincorporated areas can join the City of Lake Oswego, receive city services and vote in city elections.  Usually, access to one or more major urban services is the reason residents and property owners outside the city consider annexation.  These services include sanitary and storm sewers, city water, improved road maintenance, and greater police protection.

In 2004, the City Council adopted Resolution 04-38, a natural resources policy, discouraging the destruction of natural resources in unincorporated areas before applying for annexation to the the City.  These policies were updated December 3, 2019, with Resolution 19-59.
