Annexation is the process whereby an established municipality amends its boundaries by adding lands that were previously outside of its boundaries pursuant to requirements contained in the Miami-Dade County Code Chapters 20-1 thru 20-3 and 20-30. The Code addresses petition requirements and considerations made by the Planning and Advisory Board and the Board of County Commissioners.

Miami-Dade County is governed by Chapter 20 of the Miami-Dade County Code of Ordinances. See the code for the annexation process.

Upon these considerations the Board of County Commissioners determine if the annexation is to be put to a vote by the electorate (if more than 250 electors reside in the boundaries) of the affected area.
