Transportation Demand Management Rulemaking for Campus Institutional Zones

TDM Campus Institutional Zones header

The primary policy goal of the Campus Institutional Zoning Update Project is to provide for the growth of Portland's major campus institutions as essential service providers, centers of innovation and major employers.  

An administrative rule was enacted in conjunction with the City of Portland 2035 Comprehensive Plan in May 2018. The final administrative rule can be found here.

Through engagement with residents and institutions, PBOT is developing guidance documents regarding transportation demand management (TDM) requirements in Campus Institutional Zones.

These public meetings will inform the final guidance document(s) that will assist City staff and stakeholders in implementing two policy documents passed by City Council in 2016: Section 14 of the Transportation System Plan (Parking and Demand Management) and the Campus Institutional Zoning Project.


Campus Institutional Zoning Project Background

More than one third of the forecast job growth in Portland over the next 20 years is expected to be in the health care and education sectors, which is particularly concentrated in large college and hospital campuses dispersed throughout the city. The City’s draft Economic Opportunity Analysis (EOA) estimates that there is not enough suitably zoned developable land to accommodate this growth.

Additionally, the Conditional Use Master Plan (CUMP) and Impact Mitigation Plan (IMP) land use reviews, which have historically been used, are considered cumbersome and expensive by many involved in the process, and they often generate conflict between the institutions and their neighborhoods.

To address these concerns, the Campus Institutional Zoning Update Project (CIZUP) will allow institutions more flexibility to develop on their campuses, while protecting adjoining neighborhoods from undesired offsite impacts, including encroachment of campus uses.
