The Region 2 Development Review program is administered through the Planning Development program. ODOT staff is responsible for coordinating internal review of local land use and development proposals. The Development Review program works in cooperation with the District Maintenance staff, Planning Staff and Access Management staff, each of whom has a distinct contribution and function within development review activities.
The goals of development review are to protect the traveling public's safety and to enable the infrastructure to achieve its full design life. ODOT participates in local land use review to help protect the public investment in the state transportation system by working with local governments to mitigate the impacts of development.
By participating in the local land use and development review process, ODOT works to achieve a balance between the traffic generated by a proposed development and what the transportation system can accommodate.
