TSP Update Stage 2:

Initial Steps to Implementing the Comp Plan

The TSP is being updated in three stages

The first two stages are part of the Comp Plan update being led by the Portland Bureau of Planning and Sustainability.

Stage 1 resulted in new policies, a list of capital projects and programs and a financial plan. The “recommended” draft is now headed to Council for a hearing. If you want to check if a project made it into the TSP list, you can check  the map app. If a project you’re concerned about isn’t on there, you can still go to Council and let them know. A hearing is scheduled on Thur. Nov. 19, 2015 at 2 p.m. Check the City Council agenda here for the latest information. 

Stage 2 is underway. Stage 2 comprises additional items that are required to update the Comp Plan (per the Council adopted Periodic Review workplan) and ensure consistency with the policies from Stage 1. Stage 2 is the initial step towards implementing the Comp Plan. We will continue working to implement the Comp Plan, to refine area and modal plans, and to routinely update the TSP over the next two decades.

Stage 3 will follow the adoption of the 2035 Comp Plan and will be led by PBOT. PBOT will address items not required to complete the 2035 Comp Plan. For example, we will look at geographic-specific elements of the TSP – including the Transportation District Policies – and explore ways to incorporate the 5 Pattern Areas. Other street classification changes will also be considered.

What is included in Stage 2?

Stage 2 is the first step to implement new direction provided in the 2035 Comp Plan. Stage 2 consists of removing items that are inconsistent with 2035 Comp Plan policies and incorporating adopted plans since 2007 (last TSP update).

Stage 2 items are generally grouped into 3 categories:

Maps and classifications: For example, addressing Centers and Corridors (citywide) in Street Design Classifications

Measuring progress: For example, setting citywide mode share goals

City code amendments: Primarily to support Bureau of Planning and Sustainability zoning projects, such as Transportation Demand Management in Mixed Use Zones
