Document Description
The City is proposing to adopt an ordinance that establishes a Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT) Mitigation Program with the intent to reduce Citywide VMT. The VMT Mitigation Program would identify relevant transportation demand management (TDM) strategies and VMT-reducing projects within the City to be funded by future developments that trigger potentially significant VMT impacts under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). Potential VMT-reducing measures may include providing pedestrian/bicycle network improvements, traffic calming infrastructure, improved street connectivity, and City-run programs to incentivize use of alternative travel modes.
