Interested persons are encouraged to review the text of the proposed ordinance in detail. A certified copy of the full text is posted in the Office of the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors, Room 402, County Administration Center.

This summary is published pursuant to Government Code Section 25124 and the Board of Supervisors’ action on January 2, 1979, authorizing publication.



NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Board of Supervisors of the County of San Diego will conduct a public hearing on the Transportation Study Guide and CEQA Guideline Update for Vehicle Miles Traveled, Update on the Parcel-By-Parcel Analysis, and Updates to fire safety guidelines and standards as follows:


Date:       September 28, 2022

Time:              9:00 a.m.

Location:        County Administration Center, 1600 Pacific Highway, Room 310, San Diego, California 92101

APPLICANT:  County of San Diego

PROJECT/CASE NUMBERS: Update on Implementing Vehicle Miles Traveled Analysis During Environmental Review in the Unincorporated Region (PDS2018-POD-18-001), Update on the Parcel-By-Parcel Analysis, and Updates to fire safety guidelines and standards.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: This is a request for the Board of Supervisors (Board) to consider adopting a Transportation Study Guide (TSG) for Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT) that would establish a threshold based on the regional average VMT (rather than an unincorporated area average), which includes the entire San Diego region. In addition, the TSG identifies Infill Areas with higher densities, intersection counts, and near jobs and transit where no VMT analysis or mitigation would be required, excluding any areas designated as High or Very High Fire Hazard Severity Zones. Additionally, the TSG will provide screening criteria for small-projects, 100 percent affordable housing, locally serving uses and public facilities.  An update will also be presented on the Parcel-by-Parcel Analysis and potential changes to County fire safety guidelines and standards.

LOCATION: Unincorporated Area

ENVIRONMENTAL STATUS: It has been determined that the adoption of the proposed TSG complies with the CEQA and State and County CEQA Guidelines because the TSG is: (1) not a project as defined in the Public Resources Code section 21065 and CEQA Guidelines section 15378, and is therefore not subject to CEQA pursuant to CEQA Guidelines sections 15060(c)(3); (2) categorically exempt pursuant to section 15308 of the CEQA Guidelines because this action will enhance and protect the environment; and (3) subject to the common sense exemption, CEQA Guidelines section 15061(b)(3), because the resolution implements existing law and the other options will be reviewed under CEQA and therefore it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that the adoption of the resolution and the direction on the other options may have a significant effect on the environment.

PLANNING COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: On 7/22/2022, the Planning Commission recommended the Board of Supervisors revise the TSG to exclude Very High Fire Hazard zones from the Infill Areas, but keep areas mapped as High Fire Hazard Severity, reconsider the 15 percent below threshold recommended by the State and use a better than existing threshold, and define Affordable housing as 120 percent Area Median Income (AMI). The Planning Commission also recommended the Board reconsider using a regional VMT average and consider using an unincorporated VMT average.
