Transportation Planning

The Transportation Planning section's primary responsibility is preparing and periodically updating the long-range (20-year) county transportation plan. Other major duties include working with Metro and ODOT on regional transportation issues and initiatives, travel forecasting, oversight and coordination of the countywide Transportation Development Tax (TDT) program (formerly Traffic Impact Fee program), bicycle and pedestrian planning, and planning support for other LUT divisions.

The program also staffs monthly Washington County Coordinating Committee meetings, a regular forum for local elected officials to discuss transportation issues. Transportation planning activities include considerable involvement and discussion with county interest groups and residents in general.
