Annexation in Big Rock Township

The Comprehensive Plan from the 1990's planned for a land area that covered much of Sugar Grove Township and parts of Big Rock Township. The actual Village boundary has extended into Big Rock Township since at least the early 1990's. That boundary remained unmodified with the exception of recent annexations. Though some annexations have taken place in this area, they generally did not include additional development.


In 2001, the Village of Big Rock was incorporated in the central portion of Big Rock Township. The Village of Big Rock believes that their boundaries should essentially be the township boundaries, whereas the Village of Sugar Grove recognizes that these boundaries often do not coincide, nor need to. Many Villages and Cities in Illinois lie within two or more townships. In fact, the Village of Montgomery and the City of Aurora have annexed portions of Sugar Grove Township over the years.


The Village of Sugar Grove has established boundary agreements with every neighboring municipality (Batavia, North Aurora, Aurora, Montgomery, Yorkville, and Plano) with the exception of Big Rock and Elburn, the smallest neighbors. Even little Kaneville which was recently incorporated anticipates establishing a boundary agreement with Sugar Grove. The benefit of boundary agreements is not to establish a "grow-to" line, but to take the pressure off of each municipality to wrestle for development with another municipality.


In 2006 Sugar Grove involuntarily annexed properties located in Big Rock Township, along Camp Dean Road with the intention of bringing the Village of Big Rock to the table to discuss establishing a boundary agreement. The involuntary annexation was met with strong resistance from the people who own the homes on these properties. They appealed to the Village of Big Rock for help. Big Rock found that Sugar Grove had broken their own rules with this annexation, and quickly attempted to annex these homes themselves. After review by the County, it was determined that the Sugar Grove annexation was valid. (Source, Beacon News: http://www.suburbanchicagonews.com/beaconnews/news/201855,2_1_AU08_SUGAR_S1.article)


Then, after tremendous backlash from Big Rock residents and Big Rock officials, Sugar Grove decided to offer the residents the ability to de-annex. The 9 homes involuntarily annexed have now petitioned the Village of Sugar Grove for de-annexation.
