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 to assist the community in understanding the basics of the Transportation System Development Charges. This brochure can be found TSDC

TSDC Project Plan

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.

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. Click on this Transportation SDC Incentive Map link 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.
