What we reported
The city of Conroe approved annexation of eight tracts of land Dec. 14. The tracts include the Saddle and Surrey, Lake Lorraine, Pine Lake, White Oak Ranch, Lakewood Estates, Lake Conroe Village, Riverbrook Forest Hills and Carriage Hills neighborhoods.
Annexation of Saddle and Surrey, Lake Lorraine and Pine Lake went into effect Jan. 1, and the individuals who live on those tracts are now residents of Conroe. Annexation of White Oak Ranch went into effect Jan. 2. Changes to tax rates will be reflected on each resident’s 2018 tax bill.
The remaining four annexations— Lakewood Estates, Lake Conroe Village, Riverbrook Forest Hills and Carriage Hills—were also approved by the city. However, because the tracts each have 100 or more homes, those tracts were placed on three-year annexation plans. Residents of these communities are not considered residents of the city of Conroe, but the process for annexation has been officially approved and set in motion. The annexations will be effective in 2021.
