PlanCheckNC is the Neighborhood Council Alliance focusing on planning and land use issues. Land Use Committee members are especially encouraged to attend, but anyone interested in learning how to navigate the City’s planning and development process is welcome. PlanCheckNC meets every 2nd Saturday of the month at 10 am. at Hollenbeck Police Station, 2111 E. 1st Street, Los Angeles, CA 90033.


At the May 12th NC PlanCheckNC meeting, Rubina Ghazarian from Los Angeles Department of City Planning, and David Somers from Los Angeles Department of Transportation presented on the Transportation Demand Management (TDM) Ordinance.


The current 25-year-old TDM ordinance does not account for on-demand and shared mobility services that have changed people’s travel behavior in recent years. New mobility services, such as bike share, carshare, on-demand rides, and other smart technologies offer more options than we ever could have imagined in 1993.


With a growing number of residents, jobs, and visitors, the City of Los Angeles needs an updated set of transportation solutions to ensure that everyone has efficient, sustainable, and safe access to their destinations. Transportation demand management (TDM) can help achieve these goals in innovative ways.


TDM includes a broad spectrum of strategies that enhance people’s mobility, from information, support, and incentive programs to investments in connected, complete streets. The City’s TDM Program helps manage the use of infrastructure by ensuring new developments are designed to promote and support a full range of mobility options. The TDM Program can shift Angelenos and visitors’ travel choices, taking advantage of regional transit system investments and encouraging active transportation. TDM will foster active and healthy lifestyles, improve quality of life, and reduce harmful emissions.
