On July 14, 2015 the Portland Planning & Sustainability Commission voted 10 – 0 to recommend for City Council consideration a twenty year list of Major Projects, Citywide Programs, Refinement Plans and financial projections. The package includes:
- Major Projects: 284 major projects (those generally over $500,000 estimated cost) that the City might be able to build with twenty years of reasonably aggressive revenues, including new local, state, and regional funding, and a list of major projects that could be funded under a more aggressive revenue assumption.
- Citywide Programs: 10 citywide programs for smaller projects (those generally under $500,000 estimated cost), including projects from the City’s 2030 Bike Plan and Pedestrian Master Plan.
- Refinement Plans: updates from the 2007 refinement plan list, plus studies added by the PSC, and an ODOT “hot spots” refinement plan list. New refinement plans and studies will be recommended in the next round of TSP updates in fall 2015.
- Financials: A new Finance chapter for the TSP, including “constrained” (reasonably aggressive) and “unconstrained” (more aggressive) revenue forecasts.
This package is the first set of recommended updates to the 2007 Transportation System Plan. The second set of updates will be posted for public review in fall 2015.
