2017 ORS 431.745¹
Petition for alternative plan

(1) At any time after the adoption of a resolution under ORS 431.715 (Resolution requesting Oregon Health Authority to initiate formation or annexation), a petition, signed by not less than 51 percent of the electors registered in the affected territory, may be filed with the Oregon Health Authority. The petition shall suggest an alternative plan to the proposed formation or annexation for removal or alleviation of the conditions dangerous to public health. The petition shall state the intent of the residents to seek annexation to an existing city or special district authorized by law to provide service facilities necessary to remove or alleviate the dangerous conditions. The petition shall be accompanied by a proposed plan which shall state the type of facilities to be constructed, a proposed means of financing the facilities and an estimate of the time required to construct such facilities and place them in operation.

(2) Upon receipt of the petition, the authority shall immediately forward a copy of the petition to the Environmental Quality Commission, if the plan accompanying the petition involves facilities that are subject to the jurisdiction of the commission. The authority also shall forward a copy of the petition to the requesting body and to the county court or boundary commission where the authority filed its findings under ORS 431.740 (Notice to boundary commission) and direct the county court or boundary commission to stay the proceedings pending the review permitted under this section and ORS 431.750 (Commission review of alternative plan).
