Traffic Impacts

State and Federal laws require the correlation of Land Use Element building intensities in General Plan with the Circulation Element capacity. A Traffic Impact Analysis (TIA) is required by the City of Orange so that the impact of the land use proposals on the existing and future circulation system can be adequately assessed and to ensure that California Environmental Qualities Act (CEQA) and Congestion Management Program laws and guidelines are met.

The following TIA requirements are intended for any person or entity who is proposing development in the City of Orange, and should be used in coordination with the City's Local CEQA Guidelines and Orange Municipal Code to guide the development review process.
