(3) Future land use assumptions must be developed for future years, including but not limited to the planning horizon year of the transportation system plan, and a common horizon year for all jurisdictions within the metropolitan area.

Future land use assumptions must assume existing acknowledged urban growth boundaries throughout the planning period.
(6) Where applicable, future land use assumptions for transportation planning must allocate growth assumptions for employment and housing within climate-friendly areas as provided in OAR 660-012-0320 before allocating growth to other parts of the city or county.
(7) Future land use assumptions must be developed at a sufficient level of detail to understand where future development is expected.
