Urban Renewal

ORS 457.075
Termination of urban renewal agency

If the governing body of a municipality which has an urban renewal agency under ORS 457.035 (Urban renewal agencies) finds that there no longer exists a need for an urban renewal agency in the municipality, the governing body shall provide, by ordinance, for a termination of the agency and a transfer of the agency’s facilities, files and personnel to the municipality. The termination of an urban renewal agency shall not affect any outstanding legal actions, contracts or obligations of the agency and the municipality shall be substituted for the agency and, for the purpose of those legal actions, contracts or obligations, shall be considered a continuation of the urban renewal agency and not a new entity. No urban renewal agency shall be terminated under this section unless all indebtedness to which a portion of taxes is irrevocably pledged for payment under ORS 457.420 (Plan may provide for division of property taxes) to 457.470 (Modification of assessed value) is fully paid.

Notes of Decisions

Provisions of this chapter creating urban renewal agencies, and provisions of Housing Authorities Law, ORS 456.055 to 456.235, are parallel statutory schemes, and thus identical provisions in the two acts will be given same effect.
