Or. Admin. R. 660-044-0110 - Land Use and Transportation Scenario Plan Contents

A land use and transportation scenario plan must include:

(1) A planning period of at least 20 years in the future.
(2) An assessment of the housing and transportation needs of underserved populations;
(3) Policies and strategies intended to achieve the applicable greenhouse gas emissions reduction target in OAR 660-044-0025.
(4) Planning assumptions used to develop the scenario including:
(a) Regionally significant projects reasonably likely to be funded through the planning period;
(b) Regionally significant projects that would require additional funding;
(c) General estimates of the amount of additional funding required; and
(d) Potential sources of additional funding.
(5) Projections of land uses for the planning period including:
(a) Residential densities and locations;
(b) Employment densities and locations;
(c) Climate Friendly Areas as designated under OAR 660-012-0315; and
(d) Total regional population consistent with forecasts under OAR 660-032-0020.
(6) Analysis of local development regulations to identify any changes needed to enable development of the projected land uses, such as:
(a) Comparison of zoning maps with projected land use needed to meet the target;
(b) Parking requirements; and
(c) Electric vehicle charging requirements.
(7) Projection of future greenhouse gas emissions for the planning period using methods described in OAR 660-044-0030 using a preferred land use and transportation scenario to meet the applicable greenhouse gas reduction target in OAR 660-044-0025.
(8) Assumptions used to project future greenhouse gas emissions including:
(a) Assumptions about state and federal policies and programs;
(b) Assumptions about vehicle technology, fleet or fuels, if those are different than those provided in OAR 660-044-0030; and
(c) Assumptions about proposed regional programs or actions such as investments and incentives not already included in the list of transportation projects and projections of future land uses.
(9) Performance measures and methodologies that cities and counties will use to report on implementation of the preferred land use and transportation scenario, including:
(a) Regional performance measures to determine whether outcomes are progressing to achieve the projected reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. The regional performance measures must include actual performance for the data elements used to project greenhouse gas emissions as described in OAR 660-044-0030.
(b) Local implementation performance measures to determine whether cities and counties are taking the actions necessary to implement the preferred land use and transportation scenario.
(c) Equity performance measures to determine whether implementation of the preferred land use and transportation scenario is improving equitable outcomes for underserved communities.
(10) The performance measures in section (9) must include:
(a) A set of performance measures including methods, details, and assumptions to calculate the value;
(b) Baseline current data, or historical data, for each performance measure;
(c) A reporting schedule repeating every four or five years through the planning period;
(d) A target for each performance measure for each reporting point; and
(e) Best available demographic information for underserved populations.
(11) Report on community-based conversations and other efforts to solicit input from underserved communities.
(12) An assessment of benefits and burdens of the scenario on underserved community members compared to the population as a whole.
