About The Update
The Planning Department recently began the process of updating the City's Transportation System Plan (TSP). The TSP is a document required by statute of every local jurisdiction in the State of Oregon to help guide the planning and investment of transportation infrastructure. The TSP is updated periodically to reflect the growth and changes in the City, as well as to stay compliant with the latest State and Regional regulations.
The City last updated its TSP in 2004, while portions of the document dates back to 1999. Since 2004, the City has conducted periodic amendments to reflect small scale regulatory or planning changes. For instance, in 2012 and 2013, the TSP was amended to incorporate new planning areas for the North Hillsboro, AmberGlen and South Hillsboro areas.
The current TSP update will be a comprehensive revision of the entire TSP document. We will revisit the goals and policies, examine the needs and deficiencies, and develop a transportation plan that meets the growing needs of the City and is fiscally attainable. The update is now underway and is expected to last through the summer of 2017.
The TSP has two advisory committees: the Technical Advisory Committee and the Steering Committee.
The Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) consists of technical staff from partner agencies. The TAC provides guidance and feedback on the technical aspects of the TSP. The Steering Committee (SC) consists of community representatives and stakeholders with demonstrated interests in public service and the City’s transportation issues. The SC provides guidance and direction throughout the TSP update process in keeping with the community’s vision.
