Portland is projected to add 140,000 new jobs and 260,000 new residents over the next 20 years. If in 2035 the percentage of people who drive alone to work remains the same as it is now (nearly 60 percent), traffic, climate pollution, and household spending on vehicles and fuel will all worsen significantly. In order to accommodate this growth, our transportation system must provide Portlanders safer and more convenient ways to walk, bike, and take transit for more trips.
Stage 2 includes initial steps to implementing the Comprehensive Plan, including updating the TSP maps and classifications, measures, and City Codes. On April 12, 2016, the PSC voted unanimously to recommend that City Council amend the City of Portland Transportation System Plan (TSP) as shown in the Proposed Draft of the TSP Update, Stage 2, Sections 1-13 and as amended that day. On June 14, the PSC voted to give conceptual approval to Section 16, Street Vacation Code as amended and had consensus on a letter of support for new Title 17.107 code language for Transportation & Parking Demand Management.
