EGM-01 – Control Measure Background

New development projects produce new sources of air pollution from new vehicle trips, use of consumer products, landscape maintenance, new stationary source processes such as fuel combustion, as well as emissions generated during construction activities. Each day millions of vehicles travel the roads in the South Coast Air Basin and the length of vehicle trips is expected to increase as outlying areas continue to be developed. In addition, older residential, commercial and industrial areas may undergo major redevelopment involving construction activities, with emissions comparable to new development projects. Redevelopment projects may also generate additional vehicular traffic compared to the projects they replace because redevelopment projects often involve increasing population density compared to the previous use. Redevelopment includes demolishing existing buildings, increasing overall floor area or building additional capacity on an existing property.

The purpose of this control measure is to mitigate emission growth from new development and redevelopment projects. This initiative is designed to reduce emissions related to new residential, commercial, industrial and institutional development, including redevelopment.
