Redistricting: Proposed Subdistrict Boundaries

Background

Every ten years when federal population census data is updated, Lane Transit District’s seven subdistrict boundaries must be adjusted to reflect any changes. The Oregon Secretary of State’s office is tasked with establishing rules outlining a process to finalize new boundaries by June 30, 2022. These rules were put into effect February 2, 2022. LTD has launched a public process in accordance with the guidelines set by the Secretary of State to establish new boundaries that ensure each subdistrict:
  • Is contiguous
  • Is of equal population
  • Utilizes existing geographic or political boundaries
  • Does not divide communities of interest
  • Is connected by transportation links
Visit the Oregon Secretary of State's website for the full text of redistricting guidance issued to mass transit agencies.

About the Board of Directors

Each of LTD’s seven board members is a citizen volunteer, appointed by the Governor to represent a geographic subdistrict, in which they reside. Board members can serve up to two consecutive four-year terms.

The topographical map shows proposed changes to Lane Transit District's subdistricts. The seven subdistricts are filled in a different color, with red lines noting proposed changes to subdistrict boundaries.

The proposed redistricting map shows both current boundaries, indicated with the dotted red lines, and proposed boundary changes shaded by the seven different colors. To take a closer look at the map, download the proposed subdistrict map as a pdf.
