What is the Transportation System Plan?
The Transportation System Plan helps determine which transportation projects, policies and programs receive funding to meet the city's current and future needs. It considers all modes of transportation: walking, rolling, biking, driving and transit. If the project team understands how you use the current system, it can better incorporate your needs and desires, for a transportation system that works for everyone.
Why update the plan?
The existing Transportation System Plan was adopted in 2005. Updating it will help capture changing transportation needs, a city of Woodburn press release stated. For instance, in 2016, 619 acres were added to Woodburn's Urban Growth Boundary (UGB). According to the release, it's important for an updated plan to consider the expanding community and changing transportation patterns.
