Lane Transit District has new internal boundaries

Pat Walsh
Lane Transit District
Lane Transit District has new internal boundaries, thanks to the once-a-decade redistricting process.

The redistricting process is now complete for Lane Transit District. The Oregon Secretary of State’s office approved the proposed changes this week.

Six of the district's seven subdivisions will see slight changes, based on a shift in population over the past decade. The external boundaries of the district will not change as a result of redistricting. The district includes the Eugene-Springfield metro area, as well as some other communities in Lane County, including Cottage Grove, Creswell, Junction City, and the McKenzie River corridor east of Springfield.

LTD board members are volunteers appointed by the governor. They must live in the district they represent, and may serve up to two consecutive four-year terms.
