Concord Planning Commission Presentation

The City of Concord received a Priority Development Area (PDA) technical assistance grant from the Metropolitan Transportation Commission and ABAG to remove Level of Service (LOS) and instead use Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT) to evaluate transportation impacts, as required under the directive of Senate Bill No. 743 (SB 743) and recently updated California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) guidelines.

This Planning Commission presentation provides an overview of SB 743 and the city’s proposed approach to implement the legislation.
