On March 10, 2020, Governor Kate Brown issued
Executive Order 20-04, directing agencies to reduce climate pollution. In response, the Land Conservation and Development Commission (commission) is working on updating Oregon's
Transportation Planning Rules and related administrative rules. The commission initiated rulemaking at its September 2020 meeting.
That rulemaking will focus on significantly strengthening Oregon’s administrative rules about transportation and housing planning, particularly for Oregon's eight urban areas with populations over 50,000 people (Albany, Bend, Corvallis, Eugene/Springfield, Grants Pass, Medford/Ashland, Portland Metro, Salem/Keizer). Some of the rule changes may apply to communities outside those areas.
Rulemaking Advisory Committee members and staff will focus on meeting our greenhouse gas reduction goals through rule updates while increasing housing choice and creating more equitable outcomes for community members on the ground.
The purpose of the committee is to ensure the commission and DLCD hear from a broad group of community members. The department aims to include representatives from historically marginalized communities and people experienced in equity issues.
