A White City Incorporation question was on the November 6, 2012 election ballot in Jackson County, which is in Colorado.

County authorized and published summary of Question:

This measure would make the rural unincorporated community of White City, as well as lands contiguous to that rural unincorporated community, into a city. If approved, the city in Jackson County would be located between the cities of Medford and Eagle Point, but primarily to the east of Highway 62, west of Bigham Brown Road, north of Justice Road, and south of Hoover Avenue. The city would serve approximately 8,550 residents. The city would provide urban services such as planning, road development and improvement. No service districts will be extinguished by this incorporation.

The city would be governed by an elected five member City Council, one member of which would service as mayor. The city will take its authority from, and be governed by, the Oregon Revised Statutes. A home rule charter may subsequently be adopted by the city voters.

This measure authorizes a permanent tax rate limitation of $1.45 per $1,000 of assessed value on the nonexempt real property and taxable personal property within the city.[1][2]
