Still at a LOS?  Don’t be driven to distraction; learn from practitioners’ experience in understanding and applying SB 743.

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 and transaction exchanges, legal and administrative framework)

Presenters will include attorneys, transportation planners and transportation consultants with extensive experience in the field.

*The organizer is seeking accreditation for six hours of MCLE and AICP credits. Registration fees are waived for the following individuals:
