If private property is being anexed by a town can property owners be forced into selling or being taken over by the town?

if your property is within a parcel of land being annexed by a town, firstly, there would have to be notice served upon the owners, second, there would have to be a public hearing, and thirdly, a vote by the board members approving the annexation...no..you cannot be forced to sell your land...and yes, you will be subject to the laws of the town which has annexed the land...your alternative is to bring an action in supreme court to stop the annexation, or to amend the amount of land to be taken, or to seek removal of your land from the projected annexation...speak with a lawyer who deals with municipal law
