California’s SB-743 regulation was designed to favor infill over sprawl by encouraging construction in areas with low VMT. New construction projects must be analyzed for their impact on VMT -- difficult to do quickly and cost-effectively.
The city of Citrus Heights, California asked Fehr & Peers to create a framework for instantly assessing the VMT impact for any proposed construction project.
Watch John Gard from Fehr & Peers and StreetLight CEO Laura Schewel to see their framework for using data on VMT per resident, employee, and visitor for each Census Block Group in Citrus Heights, including trip origin-destination locations and trip length, to demonstrate VMT impact. They will also discuss how Citrus Heights is implementing this framework.
