Information on car care awareness and modifications to the Unified Planning Work Program will be posted at www.publicinput.com/nctcogOct22, where North Texans can provide comments until Tuesday, Nov. 8.

October is Fall Car Care Month, and NCTCOG invites residents to ensure their vehicles are properly taken care of and are contributing to the regional air quality solution. More information about car care awareness can be found at www.ntxcarcare.org.
