(70 ILCS 1205/3-6d)
(from Ch. 105, par. 3-6d)
(a) This Section applies only in a park district located
in whole or in part within a county with a population of more than 250,000
but less than 1,000,000.
(b) A contiguous area of land containing one or more tracts may be
disconnected from the district if (1) the area contains 20 acres or more in
the aggregate, (2) the area is located on the border of the district, (3)
disconnection will not cause any part of the district to be isolated from
the rest of the district, and (4) the district has levied taxes in a total
amount of less than $10,000 for each of the 5 previous years.
(c) The owner or owners of record of the area must file a petition
in the circuit court of the county in which the land is situated
alleging facts in support of the disconnection. If the area is
located in 2 or more counties, the petition must be filed in the
circuit court of the county in which the largest portion of the area
is located. The district from which disconnection is sought
shall be made a defendant, and it or any taxpayer residing in the
district may appear and defend against the petition. If the court finds
that the allegations of the petition are true and that the area
is entitled to disconnection, it shall order the area
disconnected from the district.
