Regional Strategic Assessment

The AAMPO TAC is currently working on a Regional Strategic Assessment in partnership with the Department of Land Conservation and Development (DLCD) and the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT). ODOT and DLCD are using a scenario planning model that will evaluate the effectiveness of potential policy changes to achieve desired Regional outcomes (greenhouse gas emissions, congestion, land use development, etc.). The AAMPO TAC is tasked with developing regional inputs and outputs, primarily transportation and housing focused, that will then be plugged into the model for sensitivity testing. The final report will consist of three future scenarios (2040) that will help policy makers understand how the decisions of today will affect our world tomorrow.

The public is welcome to attend meetings. AAMPO TAC meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month from 1:30-3:30 PM at the Albany OCWCOG office. The ODOT and DLCD Strategic Assessment has been implemented around the State. For more information about the project and for examples of what other communities have developed, please visit ODOT’s website HERE.
