Whereas, with the intent that agreements allowing existing municipal electric utilities to enlarge their service territories into areas annexed by those municipalities should be respected, the Chief Petitioners desire to form the Clackamas County People's Utility District and address this petition to the Clackamas County Commissioners:

The Chief Petitioners, electors residing in Clackamas County, desire to form a utility district and request that an election be held, pursuant to ORS 261.105, on the question of whether to form the CLACKAMAS COUNTY PEOPLES' UTILITY DISTRICT (P.U.D.) in the following territory:

All of Clackamas County, except the City of Canby and the territory served by the municipal electric utility of that city, whether within or without the boundaries of the City of Canby, as follows: starting on SW Fir Street, south from the Canby city boundary along backlot lines of SW Fir Street to its end; westerly on Knights Bridge Road from the Canby city boundaries along the back lot lines of Knights Bridge Road to its juncture with Arndt Road; north on N. Holly Street along the back lot lines of N. Holly Street to 22nd Avenue; and along the backlot lines of the 600 block of S Redwood Street; and excluding the following individual parcels along the back lot lines: 1478 S. Township Street, 1429 S. Township Street, and 164 N.E. Territorial Street.

In the event the people within any one or more municipalities or separate parcels of territory within the proposed district vote against its formation, then that portion of the district which voted in favor of organization of a people's utility district may be organized into the district.

As required by ORS 261.11 3, the Chief Petitioners also propose the question of whether the RU.D. shall be authorized to impose a one-time special levy of 3 mills per one thousand dollars of assessed valuation (equal to $3 per million dollars of assessed valuation) to finance an engineer's report and the election under ORS 261.355(1).
