D5) Hearing - CEQA Transportation Impact Thresholds Update to Comply with Senate Bill (SB) 743
(Est. Time 1 HOUR)
SB 743 and subsequently CEQA Guidelines Section 15064.3 changed transportation impact analyses under CEQA, specifically stating “vehicle miles traveled" (VMT) is the most appropriate measure of transportation impacts. With this change, the County may no longer use automobile delay, as measured by Level of Service (LOS) or similar measures of vehicular capacity or traffic congestion, as the basis for determining the significance of transportation impacts under CEQA. Thsi item is to consider proposed amendments to comply.
