Revised Draft Air Quality Conformity Analysis

public hearing

SJCOG has released the revised Draft Air Quality Conformity Analysis for the 2019 Federal Transportation Improvement Program (FTIP) and 2018 Regional Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy (RTP/SCS) for a thirty day public review and comment period. 

The Draft Conformity Analysis for the 2019 FTIP and 2018 RTP/SCS is being revised to incorporate 1997 ozone conformity due to uncertainty associated with ongoing litigation related to the EPA’s 2015 Ozone Implementation Rule dealing with the revocation of the 1997 ozone standard and the relevant “anti-backsliding” requirements.  The Draft Conformity Analysis contains the documentation to support a finding that the 2019 FTIP and 2018 RTP/SCS meet the air quality conformity requirements for ozone and particulate matter.

A public hearing is scheduled for June 15, 2018 at 12:00 P.M. at SJCOG, 555 East Weber Avenue, Stockton.  The 30-day public review and comment period on the Draft Conformity Analysis will commence on May 24, 2018 and conclude on June 22, 2018.  Public comments are welcome at the hearing or may be submitted in writing by 5:00 P.M. on June 22, 2018 to:
Ryan Niblock, Senior Regional Planner
555 East Weber Avenue
Stockton, CA 95202

The Draft Conformity Analysis, linked below and available for review at the SJCOG office, supersedes the version released for public review and comment on March 28, 2018.

Individuals with disabilities may call Rebecca Calija (209-5235-0600) at SJCOG (with 3-working-day advance notice) to request auxiliary aids necessary to participate in the public hearing. Translation services are also available (with 3-working-day advanced notice) to participants speaking any language with available professional translation services.
