The State of California requires cities to analyze land development and transportation projects using Vehicle Miles Traveled as the metric for impacts in all California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) documents, replacing the previous metric of vehicular delay or level-of-service (LOS). The City has developed a methodology to complete the updated transportation analysis under CEQA guidelines. View Here
