Vote on proposed boundary change subject to ORS 341.577

  • commission’s order


The Higher Education Coordinating Commission shall submit the question of any boundary change pertaining to a community college district subject to ORS 341.577 (Procedure when district annexes new territory that is greater in population than original district) to a vote of the electors held the same day in both the original territory and the new territory.


If the proposed boundary change is defeated in either territory, the same or a substantially similar change shall not be considered until at least 12 months have elapsed from the date of the election at which the proposed change was defeated. If the vote is favorable in both the original territory and the new territory, and subject to determination by the commission that there is a legislative appropriation to the Community College Support Fund established in ORS 341.620 (Community College Support Fund) to support the new district resulting from the boundary change at a level commensurate with support for other community college districts, then the commission shall declare the change effective on the date determined under ORS 341.565 (Boundary board). Implementation of the commission’s order shall take place only if the funds needed to accommodate the impact of annexation on other local education districts are appropriated specifically for that purpose by the Legislative Assembly or allocated by the Emergency Board.
