Development Review, Planning and Local Programs
Development Review

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. 



Local Programs
Transportation in Oregon is a cooperative effort involving all levels of government. Together with local partners, ODOT has made an extensive study of Oregon’s roads, highways and bridges. The information gathered helps identify and establish priorities for road and bridge needs of each responsible agency. The agencies address these priority needs subject to the allowed uses of available funds. ODOT continues to share funding based on the priority needs. Because ODOT is responsible for administering all federal funds supporting highway construction in Oregon, all local expenditures related to federal highway programs are included in ODOT’s budget. About 25 percent of the federal funds that come to Oregon support local programs.
