Specific projects may be exempt from the program based upon their size, use, and proposed parking. TDM requirements are impacted by location-based modifiers, ensuring that projects in areas with less TDM-mitigation availability are still able to participate in the program.

For all projects for which the program is applicable, the City has attempted to create a predictable, easy-to-use, staff-driven program that will be easy to participate. To this end, mitigation measures have been identified and an interactive tool put together that would identify TDM requirements based on the characteristics of the property and that would inform applicants of their compliance with the ordinance based upon the mitigation measures that they have selected.

This tool would be submitted to the City as certification of TDM ordinance compliance.
