Transportation System Development Charges (TSDC)
TSDC is a funding source for the public cost of constructing and expanding our transportation infrastructure, such as intersections, street lights, bridges and bicycle paths.
The City of Eugene has created a brochure Opens a New Window. to assist the community in understanding the basics of the Transportation System Development Charges.
The city’s recently adopted 2035 Transportation System Plan (TSP) and the Envision Eugene Comprehensive Plan provide the foundation for the transportation infrastructure, goals and policies that support an economically vital, healthy and equitable community.
Location and Transit Based Incentives
Envision Eugene is a community vision for 2032 that promotes new growth along or near key corridors and core commercial areas. As part of the City’s strategies to promote compact development, certain types of development may receive an adjustment to reduce the calculated TSDC.
Compact Development Adjustments
|Criteria||Reduction of |
|Commercial, residential* or mixed-use** development in the Eugene Downtown Plan Boundary|
|Location (only one applies)|
|Development is located within one of five nodes||10%|
|Transit Proximity (only one applies)|
|Transportation Demand Management (TMD) (only applicable to developments qualifying under at least one of the above criteria)|
|Accessory Dwelling Unit (SDU)||100%|
* Single-family detached and duplex housing are not eligible for compact development adjustments.
** A mixed-use development is a development that includes a combination of commercial and certain residential uses
***Adjustments are subject to annual caps.
Accessory Dwelling Unit
As part of the city’s strategies to further efficient housing options and the goals of Envision Eugene, new accessory dwelling units (ADUs) shall be granted 100% reduction of the calculated transportation system development charge.
TSDC Incentive GIS Map
An Incentive Geographic Information System layer has been created to identify if your project is located within one of the TSDC incentive areas. Check out the Transportation SDC Incentive Map Opens a New Window. to view an interactive map showing the proposed location and transit proximity incentive areas.
- Once the map opens, you may click on a property of interest to view the potential TSDC reductions for that property.
- An additional reduction may be available if the property fronts along a Key Corridor.
