The purpose of the hearing is to notify the public and receive input on the Air Quality Conformity Determinations for the North Front Range Transportation Planning Region (TPR) and a portion of the Upper Front Range TPR. These conformity determinations address the North Front Range MPO FY2020-2023 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and the 2040 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP).

In lieu of offering oral comments during the hearing, written comments may be submitted. These comments must be received at the NFRMPO address noted below or via email no later than 5:00 PM on Friday, May 31, 2019.

The following geographic areas are addressed by the conformity determination:

  • The Fort Collins and Greeley Carbon Monoxide Maintenance Areas
  • The Denver-North Front Range 8-Hour Ozone Nonattainment Area (specifically the North Front Range TPR and a portion of the Upper Front Range TPR which, together, are called the “Northern Subarea”)

The NFRMPO is required to determine conformity of the Regional Transportation Plan and Transportation Improvement Program with federal and state air quality laws and regulations before federal-aid transportation projects proceed. The Federal Highway Administration, the Federal Transit Administration and the Environmental Protection Agency must concur.
