Annexation Fiscal Impact Analyses

Martinez

RSG finalized an update and expansion of a prior annexation study for the City of Martinez. The most current study evaluated the impact of annexing the majority of the City’s SOI, which consisted of four separate study areas within unincorporated Contra Costa County. Due to an unfavorable master property tax exchange agreement, annexation has been impeded previously and the City sought to determine if circumstances had changed materially with an updated report. RSG studied several different property tax sharing scenarios to understand different annexation outcomes. RSG’s projection considered the effect of applying city service standards to the SOI and the overall implications on the City’s General Fund.
