Step 1: Locate

Locate your site, project, or area of interest in the Locations section (pages 79-85). The Locations section includes maps of Town & Village Centers, Gateways, Regional Circulation Corridors, Trails, and the Highway 1 Design Corridor, and their attendant lists of BRP designated Locations, local jurisdiction Opportunity sites, and Relevant Guidelines.

BRP designated Town & Village Centers, Gateways, Regional Circulation Corridors, Trails, and the Highway 1 Design Corridor are Locations where the RUDG are required for BRP consistency. Opportunity sites were identified during the public process and are Locations where the RUDG are encouraged – but not required for BRP consistency.

Step 2: Evaluate

Each Guideline includes Objectives, Measures, and Design References. Objectives describe the general BRP design direction and are implemented through the Measures. Measures help implement the Objectives. Design References are examples and resources to help with your planning.

  • If your site, project or area of interest is within a Town & Village Center, Gateway, Regional Circulation Corridor, Trail area, and/or the Highway 1 Design Corridor, use the Relevant Guidelines lists to inform project planning.
  • If your site, project or area of interest is within multiple planning Locations, utilize the Relevant Guidelines list for each planning Location. For example, if your project is located within a Town & Village Center, along the Highway 1 Design Corridor, use both sets of Relevant Guidelines.

Step 3: Consistency

There may be multiple ways to implement the Objectives and Measures, the jurisdiction where your project is located will be primarily responsible for ensuring RUDG compliance subject to FORA review and approval. Use the Compliance Checklist (Appendix 1) as a tool to evaluate plan RUDG compliance. The jurisdiction where your project is located will prepare the formal checklist that is submitted to FORA for consistency evaluation.
