Transportation Planning Rule Amendments/Guidelines

The Transportation Planning Rule (TPR) is an Oregon Administrative Rule adopted by the Land Conservation and Development Commission (LCDC) that guides transportation system planning and implementation at the statewide, regional and local levels. Adopted in 1991, minor amendments and updates have occurred. In 2004 the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) and the Department of Land Conservation and Development (DLCD) retained APG to assist a Joint Transportation Subcommittee comprised of Commissioners from both agencies identify TPR issues and amendments to the administrative rule.

Staff conducted a series of approximately 20 stakeholder interviews to identify TPR-related issues for the Subcommittee. Working with staff and the Subcommittee, APG drafted staff reports, issue papers and the proposed administrative rule language for the Subcommittee to consider and forward to LCDC for adoption. The initial set of administrative rule amendments were adopted by LCDC in March 2005.  

APG continued working with staff, the Joint Subcommittee and a TPR Work Group (comprised of stakeholders) on a second phase of proposed amendments to the TPR. Additional amendments the TPR were prepared, adopted by LCDC and included in revisions the the OAR. As a part of this next phase APG prepared recommended updates to the Transportation System Planning Guidelines to assist ODOT staff and local jurisdictions implement the adopted TPR amendments.
