Brown Ranch Annexation Committee

Annexation GraphicThe Brown Ranch Annexation Committee is an open public body that follows similar meeting requirements to city boards & commissions like City Council or Planning Commission. The committee is charged with negotiating the terms of a comprehensive agreement governing the proposed annexation.

All meeting minutes, agendas, session video recording and other pertinent material will be accessible online through the city website, YVHA website and Public comment is available at committee meetings, through or by email or letter. 

Once the draft agreement is finalized by the BRAC, City Council will review, and additional public comment will be available.
