The Metropolitan Transportation and Comprehensive Planning Committee of the City Club of Portland was established by the Board of Governors in February of 1965 "to study and recommend upon the preferred pattern of future transportation planning efforts for this metropolitan area, especially as they relate to comprehensive metropolitan planning and to the several single-purpose metropolitan-wide planning programs." In its charge, the Committee was specifically directed to focus primarily upon problems of governmental organization for planning, rather than to formulate a transportation plan of its own, to recommend someone else's plan, or to describe the preferred content of some future plan. Accordingly, this report is directed to the status of planning for transportation in the Portland Metropolitan Area, rather than the problems of transportation itself.
