SUBJECT:
Title
AMENDMENT NO. 2 TO THE AGREEMENT WITH DYETT & BHATIA, URBAN AND REGIONAL PLANNERS FOR PLANNING SERVICES (CITY COUNCIL).

Body
I. SUMMARY

In June 2017, the City entered into an agreement with Dyett & Bhatia, Urban & Regional Planners to provide planning services to update the General Plan and Zoning Ordinance, (Exhibit 1). Staff is recommending City Council approve Amendment No. 2 increasing the contract by $196,970.00 from $1,175,194.00 to $1,372,164.00, (Exhibit 2). Community Services will fund $74,580.00 and Community Development will fund $122,390.00. The proposed work will be implemented in two phases.

The first phase focuses on the evaluation of the Carson Circuit service. The City has provided Carson Circuit routes for decades but no formal evaluation has ever been conducted. The purpose of the evaluation is to detail how the current service meets or does not meet the transportation needs of the community, and set a baseline against which future changes in service provision are evaluated. This is typically called a "Comprehensive Operations Analysis" (COA) and is an important process for defining what benefits transportation services can provide in the City.

The second phase outlines an SB 743 implementation approach through the General Plan to provide valuable information and integrate a Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT) approach into the City's transportation analysis guidelines, TDM program, and Circulation Element. F&P will provide knowledge and insight along the way to allow the City to facilitate a transition to VMT as its primary transportation impact metric for CEQA analysis, marrying the State's objectives to encourage transportation-efficient development with the City's own goals and objectives.
