The Land Conservation and Development Commission (LCDC) has adopted minor and technical amendments to administrative rules within OAR chapter 660, division 12, commonly known as the Transportation Planning Rules.
These minor and technical amendments have been made to the Transportation Planning Rules, OAR 660, division 12, in order to:
- Specify that rule requirements related to Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) do not apply to the Walla Walla Valley MPO because this area is primarily within the state of Washington and only includes one small urban area in Oregon.
- Correct an administrative rule filing error by the department in June 2006 that inadvertently resulted in the elimination of a section of rule that was previously adopted by LCDC and was not intended to be removed and had not been repealed by LCDC.
- Update reference to population forecasts to ensure consistency with ORS 195.033 and 195.036.
A copy of the draft rules that were adopted is available here.
The rules will be effective upon filing. The official copy of the rules is at the Secretary of State's website.
