SB 743: An Evolutionary Change to Transportation Impact Analysis
SB 743 started a process that changes transportation impact analysis as part of CEQA compliance. These changes include elimination of auto delay, level of service (LOS), and other similar measures of vehicular capacity or traffic congestion as a basis for determining significant impacts for land use projects and plans in California under CEQA. According to the legislative intent contained in SB 743, these changes to current practice were to balance the needs of congestion management with statewide goals related to infill development, promotion of public health through active transportation, and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Come learn how these changes to CEQA guidelines might affect your next environmental document, infrastructure project, transportation impact assessment, or other planning document.
