The North Front Range Transportation & Air Quality Planning Council (NFRT&AQPC) will hold a public hearing as part of their regular monthly meeting on Thursday, June 7, 2018 to determine air quality conformity. The public is encouraged to attend. The meeting will begin at 6:00 p.m. will take place at the Windsor Public Works Administration Building, at 922 N. 15th Street, Windsor, CO 80550. View additional meeting information.

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 rely on the regional emissions analysis conducted for the 2040 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP), and address the North Front Range MPO FY2019-2022 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).

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 Monday, June 3, 2018.

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.

For questions or comments prior to the public hearing, please contact Becky Karasko via phone or email at the NFRMPO: (970) 416-2257 or bkarasko@nfrmpo.org.
