Tualatin has an integrated comprehensive or comp plan and land development code known as the Tualatin Development Code (TDC).
Chapters 1-30 constitute the comp plan, and the remaining chapters contain zoning and site development standards. Because of this integration, in lieu of land use and zoning maps, Tualatin has a single map of "planning districts," which function as both comp plan land use designations and zoning districts.
