Any addition or changes to the project which are contrary to such resolution shall be ratified by the same procedure as the original resolution of intent.

(c) If the project area identified by the resolution adopted by the board requires the project area be expanded outside of the boundaries of the college's campus, the governing body of the county in which such property is located first shall approve the boundaries of the project area after holding a public hearing.

The resolution shall be published once in the official county newspaper not less than one week nor more than two weeks preceding the date fixed for the public hearing. If the resolution approving the boundaries of the project area is adopted by the governing body of the county, no sales tax increment collected from taxpayers doing business within the project area, but outside the boundaries of the college campus shall be pledged pursuant to K.S.A. 74-8937 as debt service for payment of principle and interest on any bonds issued for the project until it is first subject to a county-wide election and has received the approval of a majority of the electors of the county voting thereon at an election held pursuant to the notice, publication and other election procedures prescribed by K.S.A. 12-187 and amendments thereto.

(d) Any project may be undertaken in separate development phases. Any project shall be completed on or before the final scheduled maturity of the first series of bonds issued to finance the project.
