With the implementation of SB 743, the focus of transportation analysis will shift from driver delay to reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, creation of multi-modal transportation networks and promotion of mixed land uses. This shift changes the project review paradigm under CEQA and may rearrange work priorities for a wide range of professionals including traffic engineers, transportation planners, city planners, and environmental professionals.
Join us on Thursday, May 12, for a stimulating lunch event as Chris Ganson and Chris Calfee from the Office of Planning and Research (OPR) discuss the implementation of SB 743. The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion focusing on the implications of incorporating the alternative transportation metrics into CEQA and the new opportunities this may create.

We also invite you to download Circulate San Diego's report: Smart Mobility for Smart Growth: Implementing SB743 and Complete Streets in the San Diego Region. The report was published by Circulate San Diego, in partnership with the Complete Streets Task Force, an ad hoc group composed of Circulate San Diego, the American Planning Association (APA)-San Diego Section, members of the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE)-San Diego Section, and other interested professionals. The recommendations offered in the report are meant to facilitate a conversation on how best to implement SB 743 in the San Diego region and have not been endorsed by any of the organizations sponsoring this luncheon. We look forward to advancing that conversation at the SB 743 luncheon event.
