"Measure M2's Environmental Mitigation Program"
The M2 Environmental Mitigation Program is a major component of the sales tax measure to provide programmatic environmental mitigation to off-set impacts from the 13 freeway projects. This program involves integrating acquired open space properties and habitat restoration projects into a Natural Community Conservation Plan/Habitat Conservation Plan (NCCP/HCP). The NCCP/HCP also includes a public access component for the acquired properties as well as long-term land management responsibility by OCTA or its designee.

When & Where
In 1959, a very small group of Traffic Engineers in Orange County started meeting during their noon hour once each month. It had become quite evident that a dire need existed within the county for a forum within which all persons engaged in the Traffic Engineering function might periodically gather, discuss individual or mutual problems, and arrive at solutions which reflect the combined talents of the professionals and the public. The organizers were soon joined by representatives of other firms or agencies who sought to either lend their talents or become recipients of professional assistance. The ORANGE COUNTY TRAFFIC ENGINEERING COUNCIL did indeed become the desired forum.
