Notes of Decisions

Quasi-judicial boundary com­mis­sion pro­ceed­ing denying peti­tion to annex 88 acres to city was subject to contested case pro­ce­dures of ORS 183.415 (Notice of right to hearing), and lesser pro­ce­dures re­quired by this sec­tion were insufficient.

Notes of Decisions

The statutory scheme of authority and pro­ce­dures for com­mis­sions created by this Act, plus adherence to the prescribed pro­ce­dure as set out in the Act, release the com­mis­sions from the limita­tions placed upon local govern­mental bodies in zone-change matters in Fasano v. Washington County Comm., 264 Or 574, 507 P2d 23 (1973). Marion County Fire Dist. 1 v. Marion-Polk County Local Govt. Boundary Comm., 19 Or App 108, 526 P2d 1031 (1974), Sup Ct review denied
