Or. Admin. R. 660-012-0110 - Transportation System Planning Area

(1) The planning area for transportation system plans is the area within the acknowledged urban growth boundary. The unincorporated area within urban growth boundaries is the urbanizable area.
(2) Cities and counties are responsible for cooperatively developing transportation system plans within the urban area, including the urbanizable area. Cities and counties shall jointly determine and agree how transportation system planning will occur in the urbanizable area, including plan adoption.
(a) Cities may develop and adopt a single transportation system plan for the entire urban area;
(b) A county may choose to develop and adopt a separate transportation system plan for areas in the urbanizable area; or
(c) A city and county may jointly determine the geographic extent of each of their transportation system plans within the urban area.
(3) Counties planning for urban areas as provided in this rule, and associated cities, shall meet these requirements:
(a) Counties shall meet the applicable requirements of this division as if they were a city, even when requirements only refer to cities.
(b) Both the city and county shall meet all applicable requirements of this division based on the population of the entire urban area, except where a population threshold in a rule specifically refers to the population of the urban unincorporated area.
(c) When a county develops a transportation system plan for a portion of the urban area within an urban growth boundary, both transportation system plans must have the same planning horizon year. This subsection does not apply in urban areas with more than one city.
(4) Counties shall plan areas outside urban growth boundaries as rural, regardless of location within a metropolitan area. Counties planning for unincorporated communities within a metropolitan area must meet requirements provided in OAR chapter 660, division 22.
