District Annexations

Lane County District Annexations

The district annexation process for most types of special districts is covered in Oregon Revised Statute (ORS) Chapter 198 – “Special Districts Generally.”  Always check the principal Act for the specific type of special district annexation to determine if additional formation requirements are required.

Additional information may be found by visiting the Special Districts Association of Oregon. 

Filing fees for annexations can be found here:  Annexation Fees 

Ready to start the annexation process? There are multiple departments within the County who play a significant role in the process. To better serve you, we created a special district working group, and you may email the team here to begin the process.  

Disclaimer of Legal Service: This page and any links are intended for informational purposes only. Persons wanting to annex property are encouraged to carefully review all relevant law, including the relevant provisions of Oregon Revised Statutes Chapter 198, before attempting to initiate an annexation. The County and its attorneys do not provide legal advice or representation to members of the public. All petitioners, landowners, and interested persons are expected and encouraged to retain their own legal counsel to answer questions related to annexing property, and to prepare or assist in the preparation of the petition and all other documents necessary.
