San Diego County looks to update public on VMT mitigation program

Update On Vehicle Miles Traveled Mitigation Program

Dear Interested Stakeholder,

We want to update you on our progress to implement the Board of Supervisors (Board) direction related to a Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT) mitigation program.

On March 1, 2023, the Board received a report on VMT mitigation program options and provided direction to continue coordination with outside agencies and jurisdictions, to estimate costs to project applicants, to solicit stakeholder input, and to receive additional Board direction before the VMT mitigation program is fully developed.

A VMT mitigation program will play a role in determining where development efforts are focused in the unincorporated area, such as near jobs and transit to reduce travel and greenhouse gas emissions, consistent with the intent of Senate Bill (SB) 743, balanced with considerations regarding development feasibility.

On May 22, 2024, staff will provide an update to the Board on the development of the VMT mitigation program and options that staff are evaluating as part of the program.

Two public meetings options are available to learn about the development of a VMT mitigation program.
