Fedeal legislation requires the boundary of a metropolitan planning area emcompass at least the existing urbanized area (UZA) and the contiguous area expected to become urbanized within a 20-years. In order to comply with federal regulations, the MPO boundary must be expanded.
Once approved by MPC, the new boundary recommendation will be forwarded to Oregon Department of Transportation who is coordinating the Governor's approval of changes to MPO boundaries statewide. Comments received before the public comment period ends on November 30th, 2014, will be sent to decision makers to consider as part of the approval process.
The attached map presents the recommendation for establishing the updated boundary of the Central Lane MPO.
