Annexation is the incorporation of contiguous land area into an existing municipality with a resulting change in the corporate boundaries. Although annexations can be accomplished in several different ways, the Village of Richmond typically wishes to use voluntary annexation. There are many benefits to annexing into our wonderful community!
A property owner, or group of property owners, may petition to have property annexed to the Village in accordance with Illinois law. Annexations are most commonly requested because a property owner desires to receive municipal services, such as a potable water supply, sanitary disposal of wastewater and solid refuse, public safety, emergency response, planning, development regulations, economic development, etc.
