LTC, Annual Forum, Greener California: Impacts of Senate Bill 375 and Winning Strategies for Southern California, 05/22/2009, William Fulton

  1. 1. Third Annual Leonard Transportation Center Forum“WILL SB 375 SAVE OUR LIVES OR KILL US?” William Fulton Friday, May 22, 2009 DESIGN, COMMUITY & ENVIRONMENT
  2. 2. THE NEW WORLD, WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOTVirtually all environmental and land use policy over thenext few years will be driven by climate changeconcernsSome will be focused on mitigation –dealing with sea level rise, shifting crop patterns, etc.MOST will be focused on reducing greenhouse gasemissions. Design, Community & Environment
  3. 3. WHAT IS SB 375?Planning?Regulation?Socialism?A Pain in the #@$#? Design, Community & Environment
  4. 4. TWO QUESTIONS ABOUT SB 375? What’s it supposed to do? Whatever it’s supposed to do, will it do it? Design, Community & Environment
  5. 5. HERE’S THE IDEAAB 32 sets a target – a20% or so reduction ingreenhouse gases by202035-40% of that comesfrom the burning of fuelsfor transportationHow do you reducegreenhouse gasemissions reduction? Design, Community & Environment
  6. 6. THE THREE LEGGED STOOL Design, Community & Environment
  7. 7. DRIVE LESS? YOU’VE GOT TO BE KIDDINGIs this even possible? There’s two ways to look at it How do we comply with SB 375? How do we actually drive less?These may be two different things Design, Community & Environment
  8. 8. DRIVE LESS? YOU’VE GOT TO BE KIDDING Annual Household VMTNob Hill-Fish Wharf 7,437 Rockridge 15,707 Walnut Creek 19,054Danville-San Ramon 31,291 CA Target RB 14,000 0 5,000 10,000 15,000 20,000 25,000 30,000 35,000 Design, Community & Environment
  9. 9. HOW DO WE COMPLY WITH SB 375?Based on RTAC’s advice, CARB creates RegionalTargets for MPOs to reduce GHGsMPOs then create SCSs which become part of the RTPand, if those don’t meet CARB targets, they must createAPSs.In SCAG, subregions can create SCSs and APSs.Local GPs don’t haveto have anything todo with any of this.So what? Design, Community & Environment
  10. 10. WHY THIS MATTERSREGIONAL TRANSPORTATION PLAN - Funding decisions contained in the regional Transportation Plan must be consistent with an adopted Sustainable Communities Plan.CEQA EXEMPTION - Any development project that meets certain requirements (density, transit proximity, a bunch of other things) and is consistent with an adopted SCS is exempt from CEQA or may qualify for truncated review. Even if it’s not consistent with local GP This is why BIA went for it. Design, Community & Environment
  11. 11. HOW DO WE DRIVE LESS? Design, Community & Environment
  12. 12. HOW CAN WE MAKE THIS HAPPEN?“Pricing signals” (i.e., highercosts) are the most powerfulway to alter driving habits.Higher gas costs WILLreduce VMT.But there is a FLOOR to how far downVMT can go Many people MUST drivemost places because of our land usepatterns.Thus, the built environment can onlyabsorb SO MUCH when it comes tolower VMT. Design, Community & Environment
  13. 13. WHAT’S THE GOAL?Clearly, the goal is toincrease the ability ofthe built environment to“absorb” less driving.Many advocates talkabout transit &bicyclingBut that’s aboutMOBILITY. Design, Community & Environment
  14. 14. THE GOAL IS NOT MOBILITY. IT’S ACCESSHow do youprovide thethings thatpeople need incloser proximityto where theyare?Still driving, butdriving less, isstill really good. Design, Community & Environment
  15. 15. AND YOU NEED CONCENTRATION, NOT JUST DENSITY“Mono-Density” – lotsmore of ONE thing –doesn’t help.You must have more ofEVERYTHING in closeproximity to oneanother. Design, Community & Environment
  16. 16. STRATEGIESThe obvious solution is a TODThe not-so-obvious solution is a POD (Parking OrientedDistrict)But the strategies are more or less the same Design, Community & Environment
  17. 17. CONCENTRATION OF ACTIVITIES Maintain a diverse mix of land use patternsDon’t allow anysingle use –residential,commercial, retail, oranything else –to occupy more than50% of your land Design, Community & Environment
  18. 18. CONCENTRATION OF ACTIVITIES Leverage the presence of civic institutions Design, Community & Environment
  19. 19. CONCENTRATION OF ACTIVITIESIntensify employmentas well as housing Design, Community & Environment
  20. 20. HORIZONTAL MIXED USEActivitiesneed to be incloseproximity toone anotherBut notnecessarilyon top ofeach other Design, Community & Environment
  21. 21. IT’S IN THE BUSINESS MIXThe mix ofbusinesses andservices is just asimportant asland useFocus onneighborhoodservices Design, Community & Environment
  22. 22. USE PARKING TO YOUR ADVANTAGEOn a regional level, youneed transitBut on a local level,parking performs thesame role as a transitstationPark Once strategy Design, Community & Environment
  23. 23. POD TO TODGood parking is thefoundation of a goodmixed use districtOften a precursor totransitPasadena: Parkinggarages to supportretail laid foundationfor transit that supportshousing Design, Community & Environment
