Article 2. Boundary Changes for Local Districts.

§ 15.2-4713. Enlargement of local districts.

A. The district shall be enlarged by a resolution of the governing body of the locality upon the joint petition of the commission and the owners of at least 51 percent of either the land area or assessed value of land of the district within the locality and of at least 51 percent of either the land area or assessed value of land located within the territory sought to be added to the district; however, any such territory shall be contiguous to the existing district. The joint petition shall present the information required by subsection A of § 15.2-4702. Upon receipt of such a petition, the locality shall use the standards and procedures provided in subsections B and C of § 15.2-4702; 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 the governing body finds the enlargement of the district would be in accordance with the applicable 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 the governing body 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, the governing body of the locality may, at its option, pass a resolution providing for the enlargement of the district.

The 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 call be expected from the abolition of the district; and

4. Shall request the local governing body to abolish the district.

B. Upon receipt of such a petition, the governing body shall use the standards and procedures described in subsections B and C of § 15.2-4702, 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 the governing body finds that the abolition of the district would be (i) in accordance with the applicable 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 the governing body, with the approval of the voters of the locality, has agreed to assume the debts of the district, then the local governing body 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 locality.
