The GARC Annexation HUB was deployed April 26, 2023 and will be used by local governements to request GIS assistance for their Annexation and Deannexation Reporting.

Georgia House Bill 1385 requires all local governments that annex or deannex property after July 1, 2022 to submit a digital GIS file of the parcels to the Department of Community Affairs (DCA) and the Office of Legislative and Congressional Reapportionment. Communities that do not have GIS capabilities can request assistance from its district Regional Commission. Please be aware that, as a result of this new legislation, statute now provides that no annexed area shall be added to the state map until such report has been properly submitted.
