The Regional Models of Cooperation in Air Quality Planning Webinar sponsored by the FHWA, Office of Planning and FTA, Office of Planning and Environment will address collaboration across jurisdictional boundaries in Air Quality Planning, and will feature speakers from the Charlotte, North Carolina Department of Transportation, the Memphis Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization, and the San Joaquin Council of Governments. This webinar is for internal and external audiences, and we request that you please share this announcement with your State DOT, MPOs, and public transportation providers.  Every Day Counts-3 Regional Models of Cooperation provides a framework and process for State DOTs and MPOs to develop multi-jurisdictional transportation plans and agreements to improve communication, collaboration, policy implementation, technology use and performance management across agency boundaries.  This session will be recorded.

Topic to be Discussed:  Presenters will discuss their region’s successful collaboration efforts around the air quality planning process. The webinar will not go into depth on technical topics of air quality modeling or conformity determinations. Rather, it will focus on the techniques used by different regions to establish, maintain, and enhance air quality planning coordination across jurisdictional boundaries.

Presenters include:

  • Anna Gallup, Program Manager, Metrolina Regional Model, Charlotte Department of Transportation
