The Director shall determine existing transportation levels of service, and shall classify concurrency corridors, as follows:

A. The Director shall determine the existing level of service for each concurrency corridor according to:

1. Measured average PM peak hour corridor travel speed; and

2. The projected impact on level of service of any reserved capacity or previously approved but un-built development; and

3. The impact on level of service of any revisions, amendments, or alterations to the capital facilities plan, including the Six Year Transportation Improvement Program, which have occurred since the establishment of the most recent existing level of service; and

4. Other factors determined by the Director to have a significant impact upon the existing level of service.

5. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Director shall evaluate Category 4 Corridors for consistency with the adopted Corridor Management Plan.

B. The Director shall classify concurrency corridors into four categories:

1. Category 1 Corridors are those corridors operating at speeds greater than 30% over the adopted level of service,

2. Category 2 Corridors are those corridors operating at speeds between 10% and 30% over the adopted level of service.

3. Category 3 Corridors are those corridors operating at speeds less than 10% above or below the adopted level of service.

4. Category 4 Corridors are those corridors built to ultimate capacity, when so designated by ordinance.

C. The Director shall publish and update the concurrency corridor classification as necessary.

D. Upon initial designation of a corridor as a Category 3 Corridor, the Director shall produce a policy response memorandum to address, at a minimum:

1. Whether the corridor is a candidate for Category 4 Classification;

2. Strategies to keep the corridor operating at or above adopted level or service standards; and

3. The methods the Director will use to evaluate development impacts for transportation concurrency. (Ord. M-4026 §15, 2012; Ord. M-4001 §2, 2011)
