Last month, Happy Valley announced it was accepting annexations from properties formerly within the City of Damascus boundaries. With HBA support, the city revised its annexation policy criteria and fee waiver program, which will save annexation applicants thousands of dollars. Properties that meet the annexation criteria include land inside and near Happy Valley’s Pleasant Valley/North Carver Comprehensive Plan Area. HBA thanks Happy Valley elected officials and staff for their prompt response to the September Supreme Court ruling. The court affirmed the disincorporation of the former City of Damascus. HBA applauds the city's annexation program, which will support property owners, the development community, and the city as it looks accommodate over 3,000 projected households over the next 20 years.
