What if my land is annexed by a municipal corporation?

If the owner did not sign a petition favoring annexation, or vote for the annexation, the land remains in the agricultural district, even through future application renewals.

However, if the owner either signs a petition favoring annexation or votes for annexation, or if the owner who opposed annexation has sold or transferred the land to another person who is keeping the land in the agricultural district, that land shall be subject to the rules pertaining to applications for land that is within a municipal corporation ( Ohio Revised Code 929.02 [B]).
