About the TSP

by Kurt Yeiter

Eugene’s first comprehensive “local” transportation plan, crafted for and by Eugene, is drafted and will be the subject of a public hearing on Tuesday June 21st.

The 2035 Transportation System Plan (2035 TSP) provides goals, policies, programs and infrastructure improvements necessary to meet the transportation needs of our growing community for the next 20 years. The 2035 TSP reflects recent Eugene initiatives such as addressing the pillars of Envision Eugene, MovingAhead corridor planning, the Climate Change Recovery Ordinance, and “Vision Zero” safety initiatives.

The final draft of the 2035 TSP is available on the project website: www.EugeneTSP.org.

The Eugene and Lane County Planning Commissions will hold a joint public hearing on the 2035 TSP on Tuesday, June 21, 2016, at 6 p.m. in Harris Hall at 125 E. 8th Avenue (Lane County Public Service Building)

As part of the total 2035 TSP package, on June 21 the Eugene Planning Commission will also be taking testimony from the public on corresponding amendments to the Metro Plan, TransPlan, Eugene Code Chapter 9, Eugene’s Street Classification Map, and Ordinance No. 20528 (to remove the “trip cap” limits to development imposed by that ordinance on lands zoned for employment). While the proposed 2035 TSP and Street Classification Map amendments are currently available on the project website, the other proposed amendments, the findings in support of the entire 2035 TSP package, as well as the staff report to the Planning Commission, will be available by June 14 on the Eugene Planning Commission’s webpage at: www.eugene-or.gov/pc.

Comments to the Planning Commissions may be submitted directly to the Commissions during the public hearing or through a written statement addressed to the Planning Commissions, c/o Kurt Yeiter, Public Works- Engineering, 99 East Broadway, Suite 400, Eugene, Oregon 97401 or by e-mail to kurt.m.yeiter@ci.eugene.or.us.

At a later date, the Planning Commissions will make recommendations to their respective elected bodies, the Eugene City Council and Lane Board of County Commissioners. The Council and Board will hold a joint hearing, too, before they make any decisions on the TSP. Their hearing is not expected until fall 2016 at the earliest.

Development of the 2035 TSP benefitted from countless hours of help by the Transportation Community Resource group, staff from multiple local and state agencies, neighborhood and community organizations, local commissions, committees, and the general public. However, the public hearing is an opportunity for people to provide directly to the Planning Commission comments on the proposed plan, suggested changes, or any other thoughts that the public may have regarding 2035 TSP package. I look forward to discussing the draft TSP with residents from your neighborhoods.
