Adopt Phase

Cities and counties must adopt regional and local TSPs as part of their comprehensive plans (OAR 660-012-0015(4)). Because of this, the local jurisdiction needs to approve TSPs through a legislative adoption process.

Drafting an adoption ordinance

Clearly specify the elements that will be adopted and provide the foundation for future decision-making. Such elements include:

Policies header
(if included in TSP rather than a comprehensive plan)
Maps & Lists header
  • Maps illustrating the planned modal systems
  • Functional classification designations/maps
  • Project lists and maps showing the general location of planned projects for all modes
Standards header
  • Street/roadway design standards
  • Performance standards
  • Access management standards

Supporting information

Supporting information does not have to be adopted by ordinance. This information is reviewed during the process as technical reports or memoranda and is compiled into a background reference document.

Amending your TSP

Cities and counties can amend their state-acknowledged comprehensive plans through either periodic review or a post-acknowledgment plan amendment. Local notice procedures remain the same under either process, but notice requirements to the Department of Land Conservation and Development differ, and appeals to the local decision are either heard by the Land Use Board of Appeals (for a post-acknowledgement plan amendment) or the Land Conservation and Development Commission (for periodic review).

Policy and Regulations

A vital step in achieving TSP goals, objectives, and recommendations is to ensure that adopted policy, land use, and development requirements are consistent with (and can help achieve) the desired transportation system. Jurisdictions must develop findings of compliance with applicable statewide planning goals and acknowledged comprehensive plan policies and land use regulations in conjunction with the adoption of the TSP (OAR 660-012-0025(2)).

Cities and counties must adopt a local TSP as part of their comprehensive plans. Jurisdictions amend the comprehensive plan by adopting the TSP by reference. Physical amendments to the comprehensive plan may or may not be necessary, depending on the format and content of both the TSP and the comprehensive plan documents. Land use and development requirements, including subdivision requirements, must be consistent with the TSP. Updates to development requirements may be necessary to ensure that future development is consistent with the location of planned facilities and adheres to updated local transportation standards and state transportation planning requirements. Development requirements help protect roadway function and safety, encourage active modes (transit, ridesharing, bicycling, and walking), and ensure consistency between planned land uses and the planned transportation system.
