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.
The TSP was updated in three stages. Each stage was developed with a public engagement and adoption process:
Stage One: This Stage was part of the Comp Plan Update, as outlined in Task 4 of the Periodic Review Work Plan. New proposed TSP goals & policies, projects & program lists and a financial plan were prepared with the Comp Plan Update and adopted by City Council in June 2016.
Stage Two: This Stage was also a part of the Comp Plan Update, as outlined in Task 5 of the Periodic Review Work Plan. Tasks included in this stage of the TSP Update were modifying TSP objectives to be consistent with the proposed Comp Plan update, incorporating street classification changes, and addressing performance measures and city code changes to implement the Comp Plan. This stage was adopted by City Council in December 2016.
Stage Three: This Stage is not part of the Comp Plan Update. This is the final stage of the TSP update. A full list of components is outlined here.
