California Department of Transportation

Local Development - Intergovernmental Review Program


The primary goal of the Local Development Review Program is to assist lead agencies with the identification of impacts and appropriate mitigation measures of local development activities on the State Highway System. District 3 planners review local, state, and federal programs, plans, and projects that have the potential to impact existing or proposed state transportation facilities. Local Development Review Coordinators serve as the primary point of contact with the District for all Local Development Review program activities. By coordinating with the lead agencies and developers, Intergovernmental Reviewers (IGR) establish the type and level of mitigation needed to offset project impacts. District reviewers ensure that conditions or project approval proposed by the Department and/or adopted by the lead agency are forwarded to the District Permit Engineer.

The District works with local agencies and organizations to satisfy statewide goals or policies developed by program directors at our headquarters office in Sacramento. Occasionally, specific conditions arise that require an interpretation of these broadly stated goals or policies by program directors.
