This is a handbook for municipal officials in Tennessee who are considering annexation as a solution for fringe area problems. The unincorporated urban fringe that surrounds most cities creates a host of problems, both from the the viewpoint of the city and the suburban dwellers. The purpose of this handbook is to present and to discuss briefly the factors that enter into a decision as to whether annexation should be undertaken.
