RFP - Preparation of A Regional CEQA Streamlining Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT) Adaptive Management and Mitigation Program for Ventura County

The Ventura Council of Governments (VCOG), a joint powers authority representing the ten cities of Ventura County and the County of Ventura that facilitates regional cooperation and technical assistance on issues of mutual concern, invites proposals from qualified firms to prepare a Regional CEQA Streamlining Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT) Adaptive Management and Mitigation Program (the “Project”).


The primary source of funding for this Agreement is allocated pursuant to the State of California (the “State”), Department of Housing and Community Development (“Department”) under the Regional Early Action Planning (REAP) Grant Program for regional products and services that lead to affordable housing), the regional component of the Local Government Planning Support Grants Program (as described in Health and Safety Code section 50515.02). As such, VCOG encourages participation of all persons regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, religion, familial status, or disability.


The Project Goal is to develop a VMT Adaptive Mitigation Program and supporting analysis and metrics that can be incorporated by VCOG jurisdictions into the CEQA documentations of their respective 2021-2029 Housing Elements and subsequent Housing Element implementation programs and housing projects. The Project “streamlines” the CEQA process by avoiding having to prepare an EIR only to adopt overriding considerations for a VMT impact above a VMT threshold previously determined by each jurisdiction or other CEQA Lead Agency.
