VMT Retail

Step 3: Determine Project Size, Analyze VMT

Retail projects are analyzed based on the project’s total regional VMT. Large retail projects (greater than 50,000 sqft, and excluding those that are deemed locally-serving retail) must be analyzed using the Fresno COG Activity-Based Model. For projects that must use the ABM, project sponsors can either contact COG staff or use Fresno COG’s VMT Modeling Consultant List.

COG Staff: Contact Kai Han (khan@fresnocog.org) or Santosh Bhattarai (bhattarai@fresnocog.org).

Once you have the VMT results, you may continue the analysis:

The project causes total regional VMT to decrease or stay the same

The project causes total regional VMT to increase
