12.34.010 Introduction.

In 1990, the California voters adopted Proposition 111. The resultant increased gas tax imposes new requirements on local government to curb congestion on California’s transportation network.

Each county with an urbanized area is required to develop, adopt and annually update a congestion management plan (CMP). The CMP requires that each city adopt a trip reduction ordinance.

The Bay Area Air Quality Management District has adopted Regulation 13, Rule 1 (Trip Reduction Requirements for Large Employers). The regulation establishes trip reduction requirements for public and private employers with 100 or more employees per work site, and it establishes a specific implementation schedule. The requirements of Regulation 13 are incorporated by reference into the Congestion Management Program, 1993 Update, adopted by the Alameda County CMA. The requirements of Regulation 13, Rule 1, satisfy the City’s CMP requirements regarding trip reduction. (Ord. 2065 § 1(A), 2018; Ord. 1428 § 2, 1994)

12.34.020 Administration and enforcement.

The City defers the administration and enforcement of Bay Area Air Quality Management District Regulation 13, Rule 1, regarding trip reduction, to that District. (Ord. 2065 § 1(A), 2018; Ord. 1428 § 2, 1994)
