The SKATS Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) establishes the schedule and priority for the near-term (6-year) funding and implementation of projects called for in the adopted 20-year Regional Transportation Systems Plan (RTSP). The FY2015-FY2020 TIP was adopted by the SKATS Policy Committee on May 26, 2014. The first 4 years of the new TIP will be incorporated in the Oregon Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP).
Federal regulations require that the TIP be “financially constrained.” Only those projects and programs for which funding is reasonably anticipated during the timeframe of the TIP are included. Project selection and funding allocations contained in the TIP are developed through a cooperative process facilitated by the MPO (SKATS) and reflect active participation by area jurisdictions, agencies, interest groups, and citizens. The SKATS Public Participation Plan describes the types of activities used to involve the public and allow for public comment. For public transportation projects, the public participation process for the Transportation Improvement Program satisfies the public participation process and timing for the Program of Projects. The TIP is updated every two years. Between updates, the TIP may be adjusted or amended following the TIP Management Guidelines that are part of the adopted TIP.
