The planning director shall approve, conditionally approve, or deny an application for Traffic Impact Analysis Review following a Type II process, or as part of a Type III process when in conjunction with a CUP or PUD. Approval or conditional approval shall be based on compliance with the following criteria:

(1) Traffic control devices and public or private improvements as necessary to achieve the purposes listed in this section will be implemented. These improvements may include, but are not limited to, street and intersection improvements, sidewalks, bike lanes, traffic control signs and signals, parking regulation, driveway location, and street lighting.

(2) Public improvements shall be designed and constructed to the standards specified in EC 9.6505 Improvements – Specifications. The requirement of improvements based on a traffic impact analysis does not negate the ability of the city traffic engineer to require improvements by other means specified in this code or rules or regulations adopted thereunder.

(3) In addition to the above criteria, if the Traffic Impact Analysis Review was required based on EC 9.8670(4), the improvements shall also address the structural capacity of the street in the County’s jurisdiction and address identified structural deficiencies, or reduction in the useful life of existing street structures related to the proposed development. Improvements may be needed to eliminate the identified structural deficiencies and to accommodate vehicle impacts to structures.

(4) In addition to the above criteria, if the development is located within the S-WS Walnut Station Special Area Zone, any increased traffic the development would generate on streets within the Fairmount neighborhood to the south of the Walnut Station Special Area Zone shall be mitigated through the use of traffic calming strategies or other mechanisms designed to discourage such traffic.
