The Silverton West-Side Land Use and Transportation Plan project will refine the City of Silverton's Comprehensive Plan, Transportation System Plan, and Development Code, to ensure that urbanization of the Project Study Area occurs in an integrated, connected manner that facilitates multimodal travel, reduces reliance on the automobile, reduces use of highways for local travel, and provides certainty about planned transportation investments to encourage economic development. This project will assure consistency with local and state policies, plans, and rules including the Transportation Planning Rule.
- Identify feasible patterns of land uses for the Project Study Area consistent with the City's goals for urbanization and livability.
- Identify transportation facilities needed for circulation of people walking, bicycling, and driving in the Project Study Area and to integrate the Project Study Area with surrounding neighborhoods.
- Recommend Comprehensive Plan and Zoning designations, plan and development code amendments, and facility standards to implement preferred alternatives for land use and transportation in the Project Study Area.
