Abstract: Traffic Impact Analysis (TIA) procedures can vary significantly from one agency to another. In Orange County, many cities and the county have adopted their own specialized techniques and requirements that have made standardization of practices very difficult. This paper documents the approach taken in Orange County to develop uniform TIA guidelines in light of recent statewide legislation which requires closer coordination of transportation and land use decisions.
