No Property Owner Fees Associated With Annexation

Please remember that there are no fees associated with the first phase of this annexation process.  The City of San Luis Obispo is covering all of the processing costs associated with this one-time “group” annexation.  And, there are no required infrastructure or “buy-in” fees until new development is proposed (and even then, fees are only based on new floor area).  If you have any questions about costs associated with future development, you are encouraged to contact us.

For questions about annexation please contact:  Kim Murry, Deputy Director, at (805) 781-7274 (
