What Does HB 2560 Mean for Your District?
Even if public meetings are being held in person, the governing body MUST provide members of the public an opportunity to:
- Access and attend the meeting by virtual means, and by those means:
- Submit oral testimony (if in-person oral testimony is being taken); and
- Submit written testimony (usually by email) if in-person written testimony is being taken

In coordination with the Special Districts Association of Oregon (SDAO), Streamline developed a feature to help Oregon districts comply with HB 2560 legislation that requires expanded access to online meetings – and it’s something we think every district will benefit from!
All Streamline users will be able to create Meetings with a field specifically for online meeting invitations hosted with tools like Zoom, Teams, WebEx, and more.

Streamline Announces New Accessibility Dashboard
The digital landscape for special districts has changed dramatically over the past few years. With new laws mandating everything from mandating websites to remote public meetings, they have had to up their digital game within lean budgets.
New ADA tools to protect districts
Faced with increasing pressure to be ADA compliant, SDAO members will have access to a new accessibility scanning tool through Streamline, to scan their website and publish a report on the new compliance page. This first-of-its-kind integrated tool takes care of publishing a website accessibility plan, compliance policy, requests for accommodation, annual platform testing by users with various disabilities, and monthly sitewide scans with public remediation reports.

Streamline’s new ADA accessibility dashboard will be available for SDAO members
Streamline’s commitment to developing accessible websites dates back to 2018, when it won the “Access Award” from Disability Rights California—the nation’s largest disability rights organization. It was presented at the California Capitol to Streamline CEO Mac Clemmens by Jeffrey Thom, a Stanford-trained attorney and long-time champion of disability rights. While presenting the award, Jeffrey, who is blind, challenged the audience: “Consider how frustrated you would be if you went to your favorite website and you got just a blank screen with nothing on it,” he said. “This is the reality for many users with disabilities.”
“Just as special districts are stronger together, so too are the organizations that empower them.”
- Mac Clemmens, CEO of Streamline
