SCS Evaluation Guidelines

Status:Staff is considering most recent comments
Summary:

SB 375 charges ARB with accepting or rejecting the MPOs determination that the Sustainable Community Strategy, if implemented, would achieve the applicable target.  ARB's SCS Program & Evaluation Guidelines focuses on the technical aspects of the regional modeling and supporting analysis related to that determination.  ARB is updating these guidelines.

Comments:
  • Purpose.  The Guidelines are not approved by the Board.  Instead, they are a staff level document developed to provide greater certainty to the methodology of reviewing the 18 separate strategies that ARB reviews over a rolling four year period.  In many ways, this makes sense.  It assures that the process is similarly applied across the state.  But as a staff level document, there are limits.  It should not be a policy document insofar as additional requirements are included that are outside the scope of the regulatory requirements.

  • MPO Comment Letter.  The attached 12 page letter outlines a number of areas in which the draft guidelines should be improved.
