Shifting from Maintaining LOS to Reducing VMT:
Case Studies of Analysis and Mitigation under CEQA Guidelines Implementing SB 743
Friday March 1, 2019
Held at the Offices of the Southern California Association of Governments, Los Angeles
This program will address the differences between the implementation of the California Environmental Quality Act before and after the adoption of Senate Bill 743, which substituted analyzing and mitigating additional vehicle miles traveled (VMT) for maintaining Level of Service (LOS) standards. The program will draw on five case studies based on projects previously approved under CEQA; a regional shopping mall, two mixed use redevelopments, a highway widening project and a General Plan update.
Topics to be discussed include:
- VMT impact analysis (methodology; appropriate tools and models, determining impact area)
- VMT significance thresholds (project effects, cumulative effects)
- VMT significance thresholds (project, cumulative)
- VMT mitigation strategies (project level, programmatic, VMT banks and transaction exchanges, legal and administrative framework)
Presenters will include attorneys, transportation planners and transportation consultants with extensive experience in the field.
Space is limited to 70 people to attend in person; registrants can view the program online streaming concurrently or subsequent to the program.
