Spurred by state greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction targets, three Oregon MPOs have incorporated climate change into their long-range planning processes. The new approach considers GHG emissions reduction along with other community goals, using an urban version of the GreenSTEP tool. The results show that adopted local plans combined with state-led actions enable multiple paths to reach the GHG targets, allowing communities and regions to customize GHG reduction actions that reflect community values. This session will highlight the recent work by the three different size MPOs, noting common and different approaches from each region. For example, Portland Metro found that fully funding their adopted plans would be sufficient to meet their GHG target. Supporting the region’s integrated land use and transportation strategy, these plans call for maintaining a compact urban area, providing more routes for walking and biking, expanding transit service and commuter programs, building complete and connected streets, and using technology to actively manage traffic flow. Eugene-Springfield is choosing to support state actions for a road user fee to garner needed revenue and compensating for significantly reduced driving costs under the newer fuel efficiency vehicles, which tend to increase travel per capita. They are also building on their successful bus rapid transit system, compact development, and parking policies on the University of Oregon campus. The area is also supporting private sector initiatives that support driving reductions like pay-as-you-drive insurance. Corvallis, also found many paths building on their investment in free transit and compact development near the university, with an increase in car sharing and parking management as key components. Their analysis showed the effect of channeling growth in the region’s core with these travel options had a big effect on VMT reduction and increased healthy use of active travel modes. All three efforts found significant benefits and cost savings from reduced air pollution, reduced delay and more fuel-efficient vehicles slated to be sold over the next decades. The session will highlight their findings and recommended mix of practical and innovative solutions to contemporary planning challenges that will help reduce GHG emissions and create healthy and equitable communities and a strong economy.
