This chapter is intended to meet the requirements of Assembly Bill 1791, which requires development of a trip reduction and travel demand element to the Congestion Management Program adopted by the County of Orange and adoption and implementation of a Trip Reduction and Travel Demand Ordinance.
   New office, commercial, industrial, and multi-use development, including employment centers which employ the minimum number of persons requiring submittal of a On Road Motor Vehicle Mitigation Option to the South Coast Air Quality Management District, may adversely impact existing transportation and parking facilities, resulting in increased motor vehicle emissions, deteriorating levels of service, and possibly significant additional capital expenditures to augment and improve the existing transportation system.
   In order to more efficiently utilize the existing and planned transportation system and to reduce vehicle emissions, it is the policy of the City of Anaheim to:
   A.   Reduce the number of peak-period vehicle trips generated in association with additional development;
   B.   Promote and encourage the use of alternative transportation modes such as ridesharing, carpools, vanpools, public bus and rail transit, bicycles and walking, as well as those facilities that support such modes;
   C.   Achieve related reductions in vehicle trips, traffic congestion, and public expenditure and achieve air quality improvements through utilization of existing local mechanisms and procedures for project review and permit processing;
   D.   Promote coordinated implementation of strategies on a countywide basis to reduce transportation demand; and
   E.   Achieve the most efficient use of local resources through coordinated and consistent regional and/or local transportation demand management programs. (Ord. 5209 § 1 (part); April 2, 1991; Ord. 5705 § 1; November 16, 1999.)
