NewBridge Specific Plan AQ Mitigation Plan & GHG Reduction Plan

The NewBridge Specific Plan Project is located in Sacramento County consisted of a comprehensive land use and regulatory framework to guide development within the approximately 1,095-acre site. At buildout, the proposed project would provide approximately 3,075 dwelling units, accommodate approximately 8,118 residents, add approximately 500,000 square feet of retail, office, and mixed-use space, and provide approximately 2,530 permanent jobs. The applicant for the project requested Raney prepare an Air Quality Mitigation Plan (AQMP) and Greenhouse Gas Reduction Plan (GHG RP).

At buildout, the proposed project would provide approximately 3,075 dwelling units, accommodate approximately 8,118 residents, add approximately 500,000 square feet of retail, office, and mixed-use space, and provide approximately 2,530 permanent jobs. The applicant for the project requested Raney prepare an Air Quality Mitigation Plan (AQMP) and Greenhouse Gas Reduction Plan (GHG RP).  The AQMP was prepared in compliance with the Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District (SMAQMD) Recommended Guidance for Land Use Emission Reduction and was intended to provide air quality impact mitigation measures that would be applied to the proposed project necessary for the project to meet the requirements of CEQA and meet regional air quality goals. The GHG RP was prepared in compliance with the County’s adopted thresholds for GHG emissions and was intended to provide GHG impact mitigation measures that would be applied to the proposed project necessary for the project to meet the requirements of CEQA and regional climate change goals. Raney coordinated heavily with both the County and with SMAQMD throughout the preparation of the reports. Ultimately both reports received verification letters from SMAQMD.
