Webinar: Using GreenTRIP Connect to Gain Community Support and Win Cap and Trade Funding for Transit Oriented Developments

Climate Change continues to be one of the key challenges shaping housing and infrastructure policy in California. There is a growing demand for technological tools for developers, policy advocates, and government staff to measure and mitigate the climate impacts of their projects. GreenTRIP Connect is a free statewide tool that forecasts greenhouse gas and traffic reductions, parking savings and other features on a parcel by parcel basis depending on proposed project specifications. This webinar will demonstrate how GreenTRIP Connect can directly support projects and city policies to maximize competitiveness to the Affordable Housing Sustainable Communities (AHSC) portion Cap and Trade program.

In addition to a demonstration of the program, the webinar will also provide an overview of how GreenTRIP Connect was used to support a proposed redevelopment of the Rancho Cucamonga Metrolink station into a mixed use, multi-generation transit-oriented village. Finally, there will be a presentation on how parking data will soon be included in the GreenTRIP Parking Database and the basis for a parking model in Connect for Los Angeles. Hear how these tools can support his extensive efforts on revamping CEQA transportation thresholds for affordable housing and to develop a new Transportation Demand Management (TDM) ordinance.
