Staff from the Department of Land Conservation and Development (DLCD) will provide a briefing on the effort underway at the state level to set greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction targets for Oregon's six metropolitan areas. State law directs the Land Conservation and Development Commission (LCDC) to set targets through an administrative rule-making process. Once established, the targets will be intended to help guide metropolitan areas to conduct land use and transportation scenario planning to explore ways to significantly reduce GHG emissions.

 

Details about the briefing are provided below:

Date: Thursday, February 17, 2011

Time: 3:00 to 4:00 pm

Location: 1300 NW Wall Street, Deschutes County Administration Building, DeArmond Room

DLCD staff will address the following issues:

* Getting to the targets - the technical information

* Role of scenario planning - crafting an approach that best reduces GHG emissions while meeting a full range of community livability objectives

* What land use and transportation actions cities, counties, and regions are already taking

* Process of rule-making and opportunities to comment
