The goals, objectives, and policies will be used as a point of reference against which potential transportation project and program ideas will be evaluated.

A policy provides a formalized and consistent course of action, moving the community towards attainment of its goals.

Reduce the number and severity of crashes through design, operations, maintenance, education, and enforcement.
Design transportation facilities to avoid pedestrian and bicyclist fatalities and injuries.
Maintain a network of Emergency Response Streets to facilitate prompt emergency response3.
Provide an inviting environment where travelers feel an adequate level of safety and security while traveling.

Question Title

* Do you agree with these Social Equity and Access/Mobility for all Modes policies?

Ensure that transportation facilities are provided for all demographics, including people of different ages, races, ethnicities, abilities, incomes, and different neighborhoods.
Use street design to encourage lower speeds on key multimodal streets.
Complete safe, comfortable, and direct sidewalk and bikeway networks between key destinations, transit stops, and residential areas.
Support Lane Transit District’s efforts to provide high-capacity, frequent transit service, including bus rapid transit (EmX), on the Primary Transit Network.
With Lane Transit District, analyze collector and arterial roads for their potential as a Primary Transit Network, and adopt setbacks, design, and operational standards to realize the potential for high-capacity, frequent transit service.
Expand Transportation Demand Management (TDM), carshare, and bikeshare programs to reduce the number of single-occupant vehicles.
Preserve corridors, such as rail rights-of-way, and easements that may be needed for future transportation uses.
Promote connections between modes of transportation, such as by providing good bicycle facilities at bus and train stations, and truck loading facilities at train yards.
Improve travel times and travel time reliability between key origins and destinations for transit and regional freight movement.
Encourage the use of rail for movement of freight and long distance passenger trips.

Question Title

* Do you agree with these Community Context policies?

  Yes, I completely agree Yes, I somewhat agree Neutral/ Don't know No, I somewhat disagree No, I strongly disagree
Use the Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan as the guide for improvements of pedestrian and bicycle facilities and services.
Design major transportation facilities and include amenities in all project designs in ways that retain or improve the character of residential neighborhoods.
Target publicly-financed infrastructure extensions to support development for higher densities, in-fill, mixed-use development.
Support public investment in the Eugene Airport as a regional facility, using the Eugene Airport Master Plan as the guide for improvements of facilities and services at and near the airport.
Support rail-related infrastructure improvements as part of the Cascadia High Speed Rail Corridor project.
Maximize public support for the transportation plan and individual projects through open information, public participation, and regular public acknowledgement and reassessment of the plan’s directives.

Question Title

* Do you agree with these Economic Benefit and Cost Effectiveness policies?

  Yes, I completely agree Yes, I somewhat agree Neutral/ Don't know No, I somewhat disagree No, I strongly disagree
Design streets to improve speed consistency and optimize fuel consumption.
Increase access to employment centers via foot, bike, and transit, while improving the quality of the traveling experience.
Favor transportation investments that support industries and employment sectors specifically targeted for this region.
Facilitate efficient access for goods, employees, and customers to and from commercial and industrial lands, including freight access to the regional transportation network.
Coordinate with Lane Transit District to stabilize sufficient funding for transit services to meet this growing community’s needs.
Coordinate with partner agencies to ensure efficient planning, design, operation, and maintenance of transportation facilities and programs.
Favor transportation investments that have potential funding for both implementation and ongoing maintenance.
Prioritize enhancement, improved safety, and maintenance of the existing roadway network over roadway expansion.
Operate and maintain transportation facilities in a way that reduces the need for more expensive future repair, to the extent practical and affordable.
Consider a mechanism that aligns transportation infrastructure costs in greenfield areas with the new development and requires new development to fund needed increases to capacity.

Reduce stormwater pollution and minimize hydrologic impacts associated with streets and multi-use paths in a manner prescribed by Eugene’s Comprehensive Stormwater Management Plan.
Maintain or enhance the tree canopy along key transportation corridors to reduce the urban heat island effect.
Care for federal, state, and locally-defined sensitive or imperiled species or habitat by minimizing or avoiding negative impacts associated with transportation projects.
Look for opportunities to repair and enhance habitat in all transportation projects.
