Rulemaking - Transportation Planning Rule

Minor and Technical Amendments to the Transportation Planning Rules

The Land Conservation and Development Commission (LCDC) is considering minor and technical amendments to administrative rules within OAR chapter 660, division 12, commonly known as the Transportation Planning Rules.

Minor and technical amendments to the Transportation Planning Rules, OAR 660, division 12, in order to:

  1. 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.
  2. 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of a section of rule that was previously adopted by LCDC and was not intended to be removed and had not been repealed by LCDC.
  3. Update reference to population forecasts to ensure consistency with ORS 195.033 and 195.036.


  • Proposed Draft Rule
  • Notice of Proposed Rulemaking Hearing (coming soon)
  • Statement of Need and Fiscal Impact (coming soon)
  • Housing Impact Statement (coming soon)

The department has decided to not advance the proposed amendments that clarify adoption of RTSPs to the commission at this time. Please be aware that due to deadlines, rulemaking notices published through the Secretary of State will include this as one of the proposed amendments.
