Transportation Sustainability Program February 2016 Updates

Public letter from the SF Planning Department

Dear San Franciscans,

Exciting news!

On September 27, 2013, Governor Brown signed Senate Bill 743 making changes to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). Provisions of the bill affect the environmental review process in San Francisco, specifically how the Planning Department analyzes aesthetics, parking and automobile delay impacts.

State officials are proposing a new method of measurement regarding transportation analysis that recognizes the benefits of projects that reduce vehicular traffic. This guidance, last released in January 2016, calls for a measurement known as “vehicle miles traveled.” Vehicle miles traveled, also known as VMT, measures the amount and distance that a project might cause people to drive, including the number of passengers within a vehicle. The measurement aligns better with adopted state and City policies, it’s easier to calculate, and it will give us a better picture of the environmental effects of projects.

Given the inevitable change at the state level, the time is right for the City to make the change to this new measurement for environmental review. On March 3, 2016, a resolution will be in front of the Planning Commission that, if adopted as presented by staff, will remove automobile delay as a significant impact on the environment and replace it with a vehicle miles traveled threshold for all CEQA environmental determinations, including active projects, going forward.

Check out our updated Align page for more information.

More Updates : The Transportation Sustainability Fee has been approved!

The Transportation Sustainability Fee is projected to provide $1.2 billion in transportation improvements over 30 years, funding projects that help relieve traffic congestion, reduce crowding on buses and trains, and create safer streets. Specific improvements could include more Muni buses and trains; improving reliability on Muni’s busiest routes; more comfortable and faster regional transit; a better-connected bike network and safer sidewalks and intersections.

Proposed amendments to the fee program are currently under review at the Board of Supervisors. Be sure to visit our Invest page for updates.

Transportation Demand Management: SHIFT
On February 11, 2016: Planning Department staff will provide a brief overview on the Transportation Sustainability Program’s Shift component, the proposed Transportation Demand Management (TDM) Ordinance. TDM describes strategies or measures that incentivize sustainable ways of getting around. These types of travel choices are good for the environment, help manage congestion and improve the efficiency of the transportation network.  It’s about shifting people from driving alone in their cars to taking transit, biking or other efficient travel methods. Visit our Shift page for more information.

Upcoming Meetings:

Thursday, February 11, noon:
Noon – City Hall, 1 Dr. Carlton B. Goodlett Place, Room 400
Planning Commission Informational Hearing regarding the Transportation Sustainability Program, with a focus on feedback regarding SHIFT

Thursday, March 3, noon:
