There are several steps in the annexation process. Prior to submitting your request for annexation, your first step should be to schedule a meeting with staff in the Planning Division. They will help you determine whether you are within the City of Arlington’s UGA. If you are within the Urban Growth Area (UGA), they will assist you in determining the best boundaries as well as provide the information you need for your submittal and an indication of staff recommendation on the proposal. You can then proceed with the next step.
If you are not within the UGA, you must take steps to have the UGA boundary revised to include your property. This is done through Snohomish County’s Planning and Development Services Department, which is located in the County Administration Building at 3000 Rockefeller Avenue in Everett; their phone number is 425-388-3311. Please note that we are revising many of our forms and those listed may not be available at this time. If a form link does not work please contact the Permit Center at 360-403-3551 for assistance.
