Give Input on the City’s TSP Amendment.
A virtual “open house” is being held to gather input from the community on Hood River’s Transportation System Plan (TSP), a long-range plan for motor vehicle, pedestrian, bicycle and transit projects, last updated in 2011. The virtual “open house” and online input form are available in English and Spanish at HoodRiverTSP.com and will remain open through February 28, 2021.
A vision and guide for future transportation investments, the TSP supports the health and economy of the community. Amendments have been drafted to Hood River’s Transportation System Plan (TSP) to address recommendations that resulted from over 18 months of input and public hearings.
Proposed amendments to the City’s TSP include:
- Revisions and new designs for street classifications including Minor Arterial and Neighborhood Connector streets
- Amendments to maps in the TSP for the motor vehicle system including functional classifications and connectivity, as well as maps for pedestrian and bicycle systems
- Additions and revisions to projects lists for roads and intersections, off-street trails/paths, and other pedestrian and bicycle improvements
Once completed, the TSP will be implemented by the City based on a financially constrained list of prioritized projects. The construction of projects may be completed by the City, private developers, and/or regional, state, or federal agencies, depending on the project.
The TSP update is being prepared by DKS Associates, the traffic engineering team who assisted the City with the 2011 TSP as well as the Westside Area Concept Plan.
Due to the pandemic, a virtual “open house” is being held to gather additional input from the community. Public hearings before the Planning Commission and City Council will be held prior to adoption of TSP amendments. The Planning Commission’s first public hearing on proposed revisions (File No. 2020-25) is scheduled on March 1.
