For territory located in a county with a population of more than 2 million persons (Maricopa County), a territory seeking to void its annexation and be severed from the municipality and returned to the county is required, within 20 years after the territory’s initial annexation, to file with the clerk of the county board of supervisors of the county in which the land is located a petition signed by the owners of 1/2 or more in value of the real and personal property and more than 1/2 of the persons owning real and personal property of the territory, a description and map of the territory to be severed, an affidavit stating that the municipality failed to comply with statutory requirements for annexation, and an affidavit stating that the developer did not complete the municipality's subdivision regulations. The board of supervisors is required to set a public hearing and to notify the governing body of the municipality in which the territory to be severed is located and each owner of real property in the territory. If owners of at least 51 percent of the land area protest the action or if the municipality demonstrates compliance with annexation statutes, the board of supervisors cannot declare the initial annexation void.
