City staff are also in the process of creating a FAQ section on the website dedicated to answering annexation-related questions. Please feel free to submit inquiries here, and staff will ensure they are addressed in the online section.

If the annexation is approved, a communitywide vote will be held on November 14, 2023. Both the residents in the proposed annexation area and current Siloam Springs residents will have the privilege to cast their votes on the annexation question.

The annexation is expected to bring essential City services to the area, including police, fire and emergency medical services, code enforcement, animal control, sanitation, street maintenance, and land use zoning. 

The City officials value public input and eagerly await active participation from the community in making this significant decision. The annexation will play a crucial role in shaping the future of Siloam Springs, and community engagement is vital for a well-rounded and inclusive outcome.
