While Californians are rightfully focused on COVID-19 during this time, OPR has also received many questions about SB 743 implementation in the past few weeks. The requirement in CEQA Guidelines Section 15064.3 to use vehicle miles traveled (VMT) as the metric for transportation analysis still takes effect on July 1st. The purpose of this webinar is to make this transition as easy and seamless as possible.
OPR staff will walk through OPR’s recommendations on how to implement this change and answer clarifying questions from attendees. The webinar will cover methods of VMT analysis, determining VMT significance, and VMT mitigation for both land use and transportation projects.
Guest presenters from the City of San Jose and UC Berkeley Law’s Center for Law, Energy & the Environment will cover how their jurisdiction has implemented the VMT metric and potential mitigation strategies, respectively.
