Second + PCH vs. Lennar, Traffic

In order to determine potential traffic impacts associated with a proposed project, it is first necessary to estimate trip generation due to the project.

Following is a comparison of the traffic trip generation estimates for the previously proposed Lennar project and the currently proposed Second + PCH development. For comparative purposes, the last column in the table below shows the percentage change from the Lennar Project to the Second and PCH development. Information obtained to complete the Lennar portion was obtained from the EIR. The Second + PCH project information was obtained from Carl Kemp via email on 4/28/2009.
