TSP Update Proposed Draft Tile

Message from Commissioner Steve Novick

The proposed Transportation System Plan divides Major Projects and Citywide Programs into those on the "constrained" and "unconstrained" list based on eleven criteria, including number of households (current and 2035 projected) that will benefit most from the improvement, number of employees (current and 2035 projected) who will benefit most from the improvement, safety, demonstrated community support, health, equity, economic benefit (including freight access and mobility), climate and cost effectiveness. 

This is the Bureau's draft recommendation, not the end of the process. We fully expect Portlanders to question some of these preliminary choices, and argue that we are underestimating or overestimating the benefits of particular projects. Given that we do not expect the projected revenue to significantly increase as we refine our forecasts, we will not be able to add projects to the "constrained" list without moving others to the "unconstrained" list.  So, we do ask that anyone who wants to see a project moved up to identify other projects (of equivalent cost) to be moved down. 

In addition, in order to inform the Bureau's upcoming recommendation for our five year project, program and revenue priorities, please comment on what you believe to be the top investments and revenue sources the City should pursue in the next five years.
