Boundary and Annexation Survey

Cities that annex or deannex are required by state law to particpate in the US Census Bureau's Boundary and Annexation Survey (BAS). BAS updates the boundaries on the Census maps that are used for the administration of programs and services, for planning, elections, and for population and housing counts.
