Speaker: Mike McKeever, Executive Director, Sacramento Area Council of Governments
Please join WTS Sacramento on October 20 to hear Mike McKeever speak about his role in the design and implementation of Senate Bill (SB) 375. SB 375 requires each Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) to consider the impact of land use patterns and transportation choices on Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions and develop a Sustainable Communities Strategy that will meet regional GHG emission reduction targets for passenger and light duty vehicles. The California Air Resources Board (ARB) recently adopted the regional GHG emission reduction targets for each MPO. SACOG’s targets are a seven percent reduction by 2020, and a 16 percent reduction by 2035.
Mr. McKeever will share his considerable knowledge about the target setting process. He served as the chair of ARB’s Regional Targets Advisory Committee (RTAC), which recommended a process for the ARB to use in setting the targets. Mr. McKeever will discuss the challenge of determining what would be ambitious and achievable targets, and how the state’s MPOs have worked together to meet this challenge. And, he will share his thoughts on how our region’s transportation system and land uses will need to evolve by 2020 and 2035 in order to meet our targets.
