Chapter 46. Multicounty Transportation Improvement Districts
3/2/2024

Article 2. Boundary Changes for Local Districts.

§ 15.2-4615. Enlargement of local districts.

A. The district shall be enlarged by resolutions of the boards of supervisors of the participating counties upon the concurrent joint petitions of the commission and the owners of at least 51 percent of the land area of the district within each county, and of at least 51 percent of the land area located within the territory sought to be added to the district; however, any such territory shall be contiguous to the existing district. Joint petitions shall present the information required by subsection A of § 15.2-4603. Upon receipt of such petitions, each county shall use the standards and procedures described in subsections B and C of § 15.2-4603; however, the residents and owners of both the existing district and the area proposed for the enlargement shall have the right to appear and show cause why any property should not be included in the proposed district.

B. If each county board of supervisors finds the enlargement of a local district would be in accordance with the applicable county comprehensive plan for the development of the area, in the best interests of the residents and owners of the property within the proposed district, and in furtherance of the public health, safety, and general welfare, and if each board finds that enlargement of the district does not limit or adversely affect the rights and interests of any party that has contracted with the district, each board shall pass identical resolutions providing for the enlargement of the district.

§ 15.2-4616. Abolition of local transportation districts.

A. Any district created under the provisions of this chapter may be abolished by resolutions passed by each board of supervisors upon the joint petition of the commission and the owners of at least 51 percent of the land area located within the district in each county. A joint petition:

1. May state whether the purposes for which the district was formed substantially have been achieved;

2. May state that all obligations theretofore incurred by the district have been fully paid;

3. May describe the benefits which can be expected from the abolition of the district; and

4. Shall request each board of supervisors to abolish the district.

B. Upon receipt of such a petition, each board shall use the standards and procedures described in subsections B and C of § 15.2-4603, mutatis mutandis; however, all interested persons who either reside on or who own real property within the boundaries of the district shall have the right to appear and show cause why the district should not be abolished.

C. If each board of supervisors finds that the abolition of the district would be (i) in accordance with the applicable county comprehensive plan for the development of the area, (ii) in the best interests of the residents and owners of the property within the district, and (iii) in furtherance of the public health, safety, and general welfare; and that all debts of the district have been paid and the purposes of the district either have been fulfilled or should not be fulfilled by the district, or that each board of supervisors, with the approval of the voters of each county, has agreed to assume the debts of the district, then each board shall pass a resolution abolishing the district and the district advisory board. Upon abolition of the district, the title to all funds and properties owned by the district at the time of such dissolution shall vest in the county in which the district was located.
