Roads End Challenges Annexation

After the Lincoln City City Council formally decided to officially annex the Roads End area into the city December 10th, the Roads End Water District began their legal challenge.  The group has filed an appeal to the state Land Use Board of Appeals (LUBA).

LUBA Appeal:
The text of the appeal has not yet been published but the title describes it as an appeal of an ordinance annexing the Roads End area to the City of Lincoln City. Interested parties can search the LUBA website for Roads End Water District v. City of Lincoln City, LUBA No. 2012-101, which was filed December 28, 2012.
