(1) This division
implements Oregon Land Use Planning Goal 12 (Transportation) and the state goal
to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The purpose of this division is to
significantly, and as rapidly as possible, reduce climate pollutants that are
causing climate disruption.
Cities, counties, metropolitan planning organizations, and the Metropolitan
Service District serving the Portland metro area (Metro) are encouraged to take
actions beyond the minimum requirements of this division to rapidly make large
reductions in pollution.
division requires cities, counties, and Metro to change transportation and land
use plans to significantly reduce pollution from light vehicles. This division
places specific requirements on Metro in recognition of its unique status in
Oregon. This division also requires cities and counties within other
metropolitan regions to work together to prepare a preferred land use and
transportation scenario that describes a future set of desired transportation
facilities, alternative future land use patterns, and policies that will reduce
greenhouse gas pollution from light vehicles. This division requires the cities
and counties within a metropolitan area to prepare a transportation and land
use scenario plan that defines and implements a preferred scenario, identifies
performance measures for tracking progress, and works to not only avoid or
mitigate any impacts to underserved populations, but to improve outcomes for
these communities over time.
This division aims to reduce inequities for underserved populations. The land
use and transportation scenario planning process and the local implementation
process must prioritize underserved populations so that the actions that reduce
pollution also reduce the historic inequities from prior transportation and
land use development.
