County of San Diego
NUMBERS: Consider Rescinding the Transportation Study Guide
Implementing Vehicle Miles Traveled Analysis in the
Unincorporated Region (PDS2018-POD-18-001)
DESCRIPTION: On June 24, 2020, the County adopted the
Transportation Study Guide (TSG), a technical guide for
analyzing transportation impacts under CEQA using Vehicle
Miles Traveled (VMT), consistent with Senate Bill 743.
Adoption of the TSG is not required by law but provides
guidance for applicants and decisionmakers in analyzing
transportation impacts. In 2018, the Governor’s Office of
Planning and Research (OPR) issued a Technical Advisory
recommending that, for projects in unincorporated county
areas, the lead agency compare a project’s VMT to “the
region’s” average VMT. The County considered the Technical
Advisory at the time it adopted the TSG. The OPR Technical
Advisory did not define a region and did not make any
specific recommendations on the boundary that should be
established for unincorporated areas to analyze VMT. On
June 29, 2021, OPR clarified that unincorporated areas of
counties should use a threshold based on the average VMT of
the entire San Diego county region. Today's request is for
the County Board of Supervisors (Board) to adopt a
resolution to rescind the current TSG, which had relied on
an unincorporated area average for VMT.
also includes direction for staff to return to the Board in
January 2022 with additional information on the 13 items the
Board directed staff to analyze related to VMT on May 19,
2021 (1), including more opportunities for infill
development, creation of transit accessible areas,
opportunities for affordable housing, and VMT mitigation
programs, and consider preparation of a revised TSG after
considering the report on the 13 items directed by the Board.
project is located within the unincorporated area of San
Diego County, which consists of 3,570 square miles in the
southwestern corner of the State of California.
STATUS: It has been determined that this action is not a
“project” as defined in the Public Resources Code Section
21065 and CEQA Guidelines Section 15378; and, is not subject
to CEQA pursuant to Public Resources Code Section
21080(b)(1) and CEQA Guidelines Sections 15060(c) and
15061(b)(3). In addition, even if the action constitutes a
project under CEQA, it would be categorically exempt under
CEQA Guidelines Section 15308 as an action taken by an
agency to assure the enhancement or protection of the environment.
