In 2017, the City of Baytown extended its boundary by unilaterally annexing several areas into Baytown city limits; these areas are centered around Connally Road, Barkaloo Road, and Sjolander Road. The City conducted a careful analysis and selected these areas to manage growth and development patterns and support more efficient distribution of services.
Upon annexation, these areas began receiving city-provided services such as fire and police protection and could elect for trash and recycling collection. The City has been planning the delivery of water and wastewater services to newly annexed areas. The City has prepared construction plans and began construction of water and wastewater services in the Summer of 2021.
