As part of the Hanford Reorganization Project, the City of Hanford will annex several pieces of land into the City from the Kings County jurisdiction. On April 18, 2023, Hanford City Council awarded a contract to QK, Inc, to provide planning and environmental services for the project. That process could take up to nine months.
