The commission initiatied rulemaking in September 2020. The rulemaking focused on significantly strengthening Oregon's administrative rules about transportation and housing planning in Oregon's eight urban areas with populations over 50,000 people (Albany, Bend, Corvallis, Eugene/Springfield, Grants Pass, Medford/Ashland, Portland Metro, Salem/Keizer). No significant rule changes will occur for communities outside those areas.
Staff held 12 meetings with a Rulemaking Advisory Committee, focusing on meeting our climate pollution reduction goals while increasing housing choice and creating more equitable outcomes for community members on the ground.
The committee has helped ensure the commission and DLCD hear from a broad group of community members, including representatives from historically marginalized communities and people experienced in equity issues.
Here is a summary of many of the meetings and engagement for this rulemaking.
