The RTP is required by the federal government for all metropolitan areas with
populations over 50,000. It is a 20+-year planning document covering jurisdictions
within the MPO area including Coburg, Eugene, Springfield and Lane County as well
as the Lane Transit District (LTD) and the Oregon Department of Transportation
(ODOT). The RTP establishes regional goals and policy direction to achieve those
goals, includes a list of all regionally significant transportation projects, and a funding
forecast. The MPC adopted the current RTP in December 2011.

Staff provided MPC draft copies of the RTP’s four chapters and received feedback
and direction from the MPC during the November 2016 meeting. Based upon MPC’s
direction, staff has removed the “nodal development” concept from the RTP.

Staff has updated the RTP to meet federal requirements for completing an update at
least every four to five years. This update is a minor update of limited scope; staff will begin a major update to the RTP later in 2017.
