CMP Preparation Manual

This manual is intended to help local jurisdictions comply with the requirements of the state CMP legislation (California Government Code Section 65088-65089.10). To maintain eligibility for transportation funding, local agencies must submit the following checklists to OCTA by June 30 of every odd year (i.e., 2011, 2013, etc.) to demonstrate compliance:

  • Consistency with Level of Service (LOS) Standards
  • Adoption of Capital Improvement Programs (CIPs)
  • Adoption and Implementation of a Program to Analyze the Impacts of Land Use Decisions, Including an Estimate of the Costs Associated with Mitigating those Impacts
  • Adoption and Implementation of Deficiency Plans When Highway and Roadway Level of Service Standards are Not Maintained

The chapters of this manual include instructions for completing these checklists as well as descriptions of the associated Orange County CMP elements. This manual replaces the Preparation Manual published in 1995 and will be updated as needed.
