A two-step transportation demand management (TDM) program is being proposed by the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) as a part of the Central City 2035 Plan and Mixed-Use Zones Project.
A two-step transportation demand management (TDM) program is being proposed by the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) as a part of the Central City 2035 Plan and Mixed-Use Zones Project. Step one of the program is intended to be a “basic” program that would assess a fee of $1,100/unit on new residential development and $2,400/ksf on new nonresidential development to provide education and financial incentives to new residents and employees. The amount would be assessed one time and up front when applying for a building permit. Step two will include work with an advocacy group to provide a more tailored program. The Alliance is compiling developer concerns and recommendations to ensure that this proposal does not discourage new construction.
