Reports demonstrating the Denver-North Front Range (Northern Subarea) 8-Hour Ozone Nonattainment Area and the Fort Collins and Greeley Carbon Monoxide Maintenance Areas meeting the federally prescribed air pollution emissions tests using the emissions budgets established under the 2008 8-Hour Ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) have been released for public comment. This demonstration is based on new travel demand projections and network assignments based on new projects selected for a new FY2018-2021 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and projects moved up, with the out year remaining 2040. All other assumptions remain the same from the previously approved conformity determination.

This document was released to the public on November 11, 2016, and are available for review online and at the NFRMPO office at 419 Canyon Avenue, Suite 300, Fort Collins, CO 80521. Public comments are due by 5:00 p.m. on December 10, 2016 to Becky Karasko. All comments will be presented to the North Front Range Air Quality and Transportation Planning Council (NFRT&AQPC) on January 5, 2017 at the formal public hearing and at the Air Quality Control Commission (AQCC) public meeting on December 15, 2016.
