Chapter 10.60


10.60.010    Intent and purpose.

10.60.020    Transportation system management requirements.

10.60.010 Intent and purpose.

A.    The intent and purpose of adopting and implementing the transportation system management ordinance codified in this chapter is to comply with all requirements to secure funding from AB 434 and other related local, state and federal sources for transportation system improvements.

B.    Since the Bay Area Air Quality Management District’s (BAAQMD) Regulation 13, Rule 1 is the current trip reduction regulation with which our employer base must comply and the jurisdictions within the county of San Mateo did not elect to accept delegation of the rule, the provisions in the ordinance codified in this chapter are intended to assist employers in the region in achieving their trip reduction goals to improve air quality and reduce traffic congestion.

C.    Assure that all existing and future employers and sponsors participate in mitigating traffic problems by implementing TSM measures.

D.    Encourage coordination and consistency between public agencies and the private sector in planning and implementing transportation programs.

E.    Increase public awareness and encourage more use of alternatives to commuting by single-occupant vehicles.

F.    Reduce traffic impacts within the city and the region by reducing the number of automobile trips, daily parking demand, and total vehicle miles per person traveled that would otherwise be generated by commuting.  (Ord. 6-95 §2(part), 1995).

10.60.020 Transportation system management requirements.

A.    Each employer within the city that is subject to the Bay Area Air Quality Management District’s (BAAQMD) Regulation 13, Rule 1 (regional employer-based trip reduction rule) shall conform to the employer-based trip reduction program requirements established and enforced by BAAQMD.

B.    Each employer of twenty-five or more employees shall follow the progression of and comply with Regulation 13 and other BAAQMD trip reduction regulations/rules to comply with new mandates that may come into effect for such employer’s work site.  (Ord. 6-95 §2(part), 1995).
