In 2005, Prescott voters passed the Reasonable Growth Initiative, also known as Prop 400. This citizen initiative had four provisions that applied to proposed annexations of 250 acres or more. On November 8, 2005,council officially added the initiative's provisions, with supplementary language, to Article I, Section 4 of the city charter, where it states,
Â"The people of the City of Prescott believe it is in the best interest of the city to establish additional local requirements for annexation to ensure that any future expansion of the city's boundary does not undermine the city's efforts to attain safe-yield or otherwise threaten the water supply of city residents."
