Or. Admin. R. 660-012-0600 - Bicycle System Planning

(1) Transportation system plans must include a bicycle system element that meets the requirements of this rule. The bicycle system must be designed to provide safe and comfortable routes for a range of users and abilities. For the purposes of this division, the bicycle system is intended to serve people riding bicycles and other vehicles that operate at a similar speed and scale to people riding bicycles. These vehicles include, but are not limited to: electric bicycles, kick-style and electric scooters, and skateboards; and do not include motorcycles.
(2) A bicycle system element must include the following elements:
(a) The complete bicycle system as described in section (3) that includes the full buildout of the bicycle system within the urban growth boundary;
(b) Identification of gaps and deficiencies in the bicycle system as described in section (4);
(c) Locations of key bicycle destinations identified as provided in OAR 660-012-0360; and
(d) A list of prioritized bicycle system projects developed as provided in OAR 660-012-0620.
(3) The complete bicycle system is the full buildout of a complete bicycle system within the planning area. A city or county determines the complete bicycle system plan by:
(a) Using the bicycle system inventory developed under OAR 660-012-0605 as a base;
(b) Adding the minimum bicycle facilities to places that do not presently meet the minimum bicycle system requirements in OAR 660-012-0610; and
(c) Adding enhanced facilities above the minimum bicycle system requirements where the city or county finds that enhanced facilities are necessary or desirable to meet the goals of the jurisdiction's comprehensive plan.
(4) Cities and counties shall identify gaps and deficiencies in the bicycle system by comparing the complete bicycle system with the bicycle system inventory developed under OAR 660-012-0605. Cities must include any part of the complete bicycle system not presently built to the standard in the complete bicycle plan as a gap or deficiency.
