HIGHLAND — An annexation petition has been filed with the city for the purpose of annexing approximately 84.9 acres into the city. The annexation petition was certified by the Highland city recorder and city attorney on Feb. 28.

The proposed property for annexation is generally located north of the northeast corner of 11800 North and Highland Boulevard. If approved, the requested annexation will include office, retail, senior living and 176 residential family lots as a part of a Planned Development District.

A complete copy of the annexation petition is available for review with the Highland city recorder at the city offices, 5400 W. Civic Center Drive.

Unless a written protest is filed with the Utah County Boundary Commission and a copy delivered to the city offices, the Highland City Council may grant approval of the annexation petition and annex the above mentioned property into Highland City. Anyone wishing to file a protest shall file it with the Utah County Boundary Commission at 100 E. Center, Provo.

If the annexation petition is approved, the area will be served by the Lone Peak Public Safety District.
