Administrative Rulemaking on TDM Requirements for Campus Institutional Zones

Through engagement with residents and institutions, PBOT developed guidance documents regarding transportation demand management (TDM) requirements in Campus Institutional Zones. The final administrative rule can be found here. 

The administrative rule was enacted in conjunction with the City of Portland 2035 Comprehensive Plan in May 2018. 

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.

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.
