Local Program Leadership Team
Purpose Statement

The Local Program Leadership Team (LPLT) provides strategic level planning, decision-making, and guidance for key aspects of the Local Program.

ODOT's Local Program involves collaboration among the Active Transportation Section, Regional Local Program Units & Technical Centers, Technical Services and local agencies, for the development and delivery of local projects in compliance with program requirements.
The purpose  of the Local Program Leadership Team is to ensure that ODOT's Local Program fulfills its commitments by delivering local programs, projects, and policies that comply with program requirements and meet the needs of ODOT's customers and stakeholders. 
Meeting Times and Location
LPLT meetings are typically held on the first Wednesday of each month, from 9:00am - 12:00pm in Salem at 455 Airport Rd Building B SE Salem, 97302, and offer phone and web conferencing as an option for travel. There is a short span of time allotted on the agenda for members to discuss important issues if the need arises. November and December meeting times will fluctuate based upon the availability of committee members due to the holidays.
