Land Use & Transportation Planning
LLG specializes in the preparation of master plans for campuses and multi-use development projects, specific plans, traffic impact studies, and site access/circulation studies for both private and public sector clients. Other detailed studies include: speed surveys, trip generation surveys for special generator land uses, travel time/commute surveys, patron intercept surveys, neighborhood intrusion surveys, and transportation demand management plans. LLG assists in the development of site plans to ensure that vehicular/truck access; pedestrian/bicycle mobility; parking and internal circulation is optimized and meets criteria. Support is provided throughout the public entitlement process, including client representation at community outreach meetings, agency meetings as well as public hearings.

City of San Gabriel, CA
Located in the heart of the historic City of San Gabriel, the Sheraton Los Angeles San Gabriel Hotel celebrated the recent grand opening with the new year. LLG provided transportation planning consultation to the team and City staff in the development of this contemporary art-deco style hotel featuring 288 guest rooms, a resort-style pool; a full-service café and two high-end restaurants, with meeting rooms and banquet space catered for tourists, businesses, and locals. Consultation included preparation of a weekday and weekend traffic impact analysis, site access and circulation review, traffic signal warrant analyses, shared parking and parking design review, as well as development of transportation demand management strategies.
LLG prepared traffic and parking studies in conjunction with the University Specific Plan and a variety of development projects including new residence halls and parking structures. The studies applied extensive parking and traffic surveys on campus and the surrounding street system, and determined optimal parking ratios to guide for future University growth planning.
LLG delivered a Parking Management Plan (PMP) and implementation manual for Chapman University to address various parking-related issues (supply, demand, enforcement, education, City’s Neighborhood Permit Parking Program, on-street parking on residential streets, etc.), conducted workshops and stakeholder meetings with the University, City and local residents, and prepared an annual report to refine PMP measures.
San Diego, CA
LLG prepared a comprehensive traffic study for the North Embarcadero Visionary Plan. The analysis for the redevelopment project – located on a 295-acre waterfront site in downtown San Diego – included four subsequent projects (County Administration Center, the B Street Cruise Ship Terminal, Lane Field and the Midway Aircraft Carrier) as well as analysis of future regional growth.
LLG’s Traffic Impact Analysis (TIA) report addresses potential traffic impacts and circulation needs associated with the development of the Claremont McKenna College (CMC) Master Plan project. The TIA evaluated the existing operating conditions at 18 key intersections within the project’s vicinity, estimated the trip generation potential for both component areas of the proposed project and forecast existing and future operating conditions with, and without the project. The TIA satisfied the traffic impact study requirements of the Cities of Claremont and Upland as well as the California Department of Transportation. LLG identified 23 related projects with potential to contribute traffic to the analysis area, and included the related projects in the cumulative traffic analysis.
City of Industry, CA
LLG is currently working on the Industry General Plan Update to determine and evaluate the traffic impacts associated with the City’s General Plan Buildout in Post-Year 2035 (i.e., not an actual buildout year, but rather a theoretical timeframe for analysis purposes based on latest regional forecasts), based upon the future land use designations presumed in the General Plan Update. The findings from the traffic study will be included in the EIR being prepared by The Planning Center. The study presents an inventory of existing characteristics of the City’s street network (including 50 key intersections and 25 roadway segments), public transit, rail service, and bicycle facilities; identifies programmed transportation improvements that would be in place by Post-Year 2035; forecasts future baseline traffic volumes, and incremental traffic generated by the General Plan Buildout; evaluates potential impacts of these project-generated trips on the surrounding street system assuming existing infrastructure without programmed improvements, and in Post-Year 2035 with the completion of programmed improvements; identifies additional measures that could alleviate deficient operations; and presents findings from an evaluation of freeway mainline segments and ramp intersections located within the study area.
City of Corona, CA
LLG was responsible for providing traffic planning support to the Downtown Revitalization Specific Plan for the City of Corona, California. The Specific Plan area includes approximately 395 acres and generally consists of the commercial corridor along Sixth Street, from Lincoln Avenue on the west and the Temescal Creek Channel on the east, and the area within the Grand Boulevard Circle. The Specific Plan re-addressed area urban design concepts and requirements for pedestrian/bicycle/transit linkages, affordable housing, recycled water, economic development, infill development, infrastructure improvements, mixed use development and overall community revitalization of the downtown core area.
City of Corona, CA
LLG prepared EIR Traffic Impact Analysis report for the 458-acre Dos Lagos Master Plan mixed-use development in Corona, California consisting of residential, commercial and entertainment retail with Lifestyle Center, golf resort, business park, light industrial/R&D, and condominiums. Provided Site Planning Design Consultation and study of project Internal Circulation for each of the individual development areas within the Dos Lagos Master Plan. Coordinated with Caltrans District 8 regarding Interchange improvements at Cajalco/I-15 and coordinated with Riverside County Transportation Commission regarding the impact of the proposed Mid-County Parkway on the Project site. Prepared Signing & Striping and Traffic Signal design plans, including ATMS improvements, for the roadways and intersections along the Temescal Canyon and Weirick Road project frontages.
City of El Monte, CA
The 14.6-acre, over 1 million square-foot Flair Spectrum Specific Plan project is located in the Flair Park area of the City of El Monte. Under the direction of the City of El Monte, LLG oversaw the preparation of the traffic and parking analyses in support of the EIR entitlement process. The traffic analysis reviewed existing and future operations at 46 locations within six different jurisdictions. The firm was integral in providing support throughout the challenging environmental review process, including preparation of responses to comments in support of the Final EIR. Community meeting and public hearing representation was also provided and the EIR was recently certified.
