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

This program addresses 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.  It draws 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 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.

*The organizer has accreditation for six hours of California Continuing Legal Education credits and six hours of American Institute of Certified Planners Certification Maintenance credits.
