Public Input Opportunities

To facilitate an open, inclusive process, NCTCOG offers opportunities for North Texans to get informed, involved:

Governor's Proposed Ozone Classification
On October 1, 2015, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) revised the eight-hour ozone standard to less than or equal to 70 parts per billion (ppb). Per the Federal Clean Air Act, states submit recommendations for which counties should be designated as nonattainment within one year of the revision to the ozone standard. Governor Greg Abbott submitted the formal nonattainment recommendations for the State of Texas to the EPA on September 30, 2016. The recommendation for North Central Texas included the existing 10-county nonattainment area, with the addition of Hood County. The EPA will review all state submittals and anticipates final designations to be announced in October 2017.

About the Metropolitan Planning Organization and Public Involvement

As the federally designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the Dallas-Fort Worth area, the NCTCOG Transportation Department and Regional Transportation Council are together responsible for developing, coordinating and allocating funding to transportation plans and related air quality projects. What is the MPO?

NCTCOG invites and encourages all North Texans, including those traditionally underserved by transportation, to share ideas and opinions. The Public Participation Plan [PDF] details more about how groups and individuals can be involved. Additionally, NCTCOG proactively seeks to educate and engage North Texans in the transportation planning process. It is expected that by 2035, nine million people will call North Texas home. Meeting the mobility needs of today and tomorrow requires coordination and collaboration.
