INTRODUCTION
This is the 2008 8- hour ozone standard conformity determination report for 2035 long
range transportation plans (LRTPs) and fiscal years (FY) 2012-2018 transportation
improvement programs (TIPs) for the following areas:





The Mecklenburg-Union Metropolitan Planning Organization (MUMPO)
The Cabarrus Rowan MPO (CRMPO)
The Gaston Urban Area MPO (GUAMPO)
The portion of the Rocky River Rural Planning Organization (RPO) in Eastern
and Southern Union County.
The portion of the Lake Norman RPO in southern Iredell and eastern Lincoln
Counties
Based on the results of the analysis described in this report, the 2035 long-range
transportation plan (LRTPs) for MUMPO, CRMPO, GUAMPO and their latest,
respective transportation improvement program (TIP) conforms to the purpose of the
North Carolina State Implementation Plan (SIP). This transportation conformity
determination is supported by the following findings:



The FY 2012-2018 TIPs are direct subsets of the conforming 2035 LRTPs.
Each LRTP has a 20-year planning horizon.
The conformity determinations for the RPOs (donut areas1) were made by the
North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT). The Donut Areas
projects from the FY 2012-2018 STIP conform to the purpose of the North
Carolina SIP.
The current (amended if applicable) 2035 LRTPs were adopted:



by the Mecklenburg-Union MPO on October 25, 2012
by the Cabarrus Rowan MPO on June 22, 2011

FISCAL CONSTRAINT DETERMINATION
As part of the federal transportation planning requirements 23 CFR 450 and 500 for
LRTPs, the costs of implementing transportation programs and projects included in
LRTPs are compared with the funding expected to be available. These LRTPs’ financial
analyses were developed in response to the requirements for “financially constrained
plans”.
These LRTPs consider capital costs and operation and maintenance (O&M) costs
associated with the preservation and continued operation of the existing transportation
system, as well as the costs associated with the recommended expansion of the
transportation networks included in the LRTPs. The LRTPs also describe revenues from
all sources that will be available to pay for capital and O&M costs. Each LRTP describes
in detail its own financing plan.
Assumptions for revenues and expenditures are the same as shown in the original
document because overall costs of projects did not change.
TRANSPORTATION CONFORMITY
The conformity determination accomplishes the intent of the North Carolina State
Implementation Plan (SIP). This conformity determination is based on a regional
emissions analysis that uses the transportation network approved by each of the abovenamed Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) for their 2035 LRTPs, donut area
projects from the FY 2012-2018 State TIP for the Rural Planning Organizations (RPOs)
and the emissions factors developed by the North Carolina Department of Environment
and Natural Resources (DENR). The analysis and schedule utilized was the result of
interagency consultation as documented in Appendix B. Based on this analysis the
MUMPO, the CRMPO and the GUAMPO 2035 LRTPs and their respective FY 20122018 TIPs conform to the purpose of the North Carolina SIP. The FY 2012-2018 TIP
(i.e., project scope/description, project length, number of lanes) and horizon year (project
completion) are direct subsets of the conforming 2035 Long-Range Transportation Plan
(LRTP). The LRTP has a 20-year planning horizon. The conformity determination for
the RPOs (donut areas) was made by the North Carolina Department of Transportation
(NCDOT). RPO (donut area) projects conform to the purpose of the North Carolina SIP.
In 1997 the NAAQS for ozone was reviewed and revised to reflect improved scientific
understanding of the health impacts of this pollutant. When the standard was revised in
1997, an eight-hour ozone standard was established. In April 2004 (effective June 15,
2004), the USEPA declared the entire Metrolina area (as shown in Figure 1) as being in
moderate nonattainment for the eight-hour ozone standard. This area included:


The Cabarrus-Rowan Metropolitan Planning Organization (CRMPO)
o Cabarrus County
o Rowan County
The Gaston Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (GUAMPO)
6




o Gaston County
The Mecklenburg-Union Metropolitan Planning Organization (MUMPO)
o Mecklenburg County
o Union County
The portion of the Lake Norman Rural Planning Organization in western Gaston
County, Lincoln County, and southern Iredell County (part);
The portion of the Rocky River Rural Planning Organization in eastern and
southern Union County; and
The Rock Hill, Fort Mill Area Transportation Study (RFATS) an MPO
comprising the urbanized (eastern) half of York County, SC.
Figure 1. MPO and Non-MPO areas Comprising the Metrolina Nonattainment
Area for the 1997 ozone standard.
In 2012 the NAAQS for ozone was reviewed and revised once again to reflect improved
scientific understanding of the health impacts of this pollutant. This is known as the 2008
eight hour ozone standard. Effective July 20, 2012, the USEPA declared almost the
entire Metrolina area (as shown in Figure 2) as being marginal nonattainment for the
eight-hour ozone standard. Appendix A contains the Federal Register Notice for the Air
7
Quality Designations for the 2008 NAAQS. This area includes:






The Cabarrus-Rowan Metropolitan Planning Organization (CRMPO)
o Cabarrus County (part)
o Rowan County (part);
The Gaston Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (GUAMPO)
o Gaston County (part)
The Mecklenburg-Union Metropolitan Planning Organization (MUMPO)
o Mecklenburg County
o Union County (part)
The portion of the Lake Norman Rural Planning Organization in western Gaston
County (part), Lincoln County (part), and southern Iredell County (part)
The portion of the Rocky River Rural Planning Organization in eastern and
southern Union County (part); and
The Rock Hill, Fort Mill Area Transportation Study (RFATS) an MPO
comprising the urbanized (eastern) half of York County, SC.

Although a portion of York County, South Carolina was designated for both the 1997 and
the 2008 eight hour ozone standards part of the bi-state Charlotte 8-hour ozone
nonattainment area, they are allowed to demonstrate conformity independent of the North
Carolina portion of this nonattainment area. As thus, the planning assumptions and
methodologies used for the York County, South Carolina portion of this nonattainment
area is reflected in a separate transportation conformity determination that is generated by
the Rock Hill-Fort Mill Area Transit Study Metropolitan Planning Organization.
This conformity determination will cover the 2008 8-hour ozone standard which became
effective on July 20, 2012. Transportation conformity must be demonstrated by July 20,
2013. This conformity determination is scheduled to be completed in May 2013.
This conformity analysis applies the same travel model and planning assumptions as
included in the original 2035 LRTPs. There were slight changes in some of the Mobile
6.2 emissions factors as a result of some updated MOBILE6 modeling parameters. Those
changes are documented in the amended Appendix D.
The transportation conformity emissions for NOx and VOC for 2015, 2025 and 2035 use
vehicle miles of travel (VMT) and speeds from the Metrolina area MPOs 2035 LRTPs
and projects from the FY 12-18 TIPs for the donut area counties. This information is
provided in Appendix C.
Tables 2 through 8 contain a summary of results from the County budget comparisons for
the Metrolina area as follows:

In every horizon year for every pollutant, the emissions expected from the
implementation of the LRTPs are less than the motor vehicle emissions budgets for
Mecklenburg County, and Union County established in the SIP.
The emissions comparison summary covers the 2008 eight hour ozone standard.
To demonstrate conformity to the 2008 ozone standard, the motor vehicle emission
budgets contained in the Metrolina RFP SIP (deemed adequate March 8, 20120) will be
used for Mecklenburg, Union (part), Cabarrus (part), Rowan (part), Gaston (part),
Lincoln (part) and Iredell (part) as detailed below:

Mecklenburg County: whole county designated and whole county VMT/speed
used, emissions calculated and compared to whole county MVEB)


Union County (partial county designated but whole county VMT/speed was used,
emissions calculated and compared to whole county MVEB)
Cabarrus County (partial county designated but whole county VMT/speed was
used, emissions calculated and compared to whole county MVEB)
Rowan County (partial county designated but whole county VMT/speed was
used, emissions calculated and compared to whole county MVEB)
Gaston County (partial county designated but whole county VMT/speed was
used, emissions calculated and compared to whole county MVEB)
Lincoln County (partial county designated but whole county VMT/speed was
used, emissions calculated and compared to whole county MVEB)
Iredell County (partial county designated and partial county VMT/speed was
used, emissions calculated and compared to partial county MVEB).
This approach is allowed per EPA Guidance for Transportation Conformity
Implementation in Multi-Jurisdictional Nonattainment and Maintenance Areas dated
7/2012.

Based on the results of the analysis and the conformity interagency consultation meetings
for the Metrolina Area 2035 LRTPs and the FY 2012-2018 TIPs and projects from the
2012-2018 STIPs conform to the purpose of the North Carolina SIP. In every analysis
year for every pollutant, the emissions expected from the Metrolina Area LRTPs/TIPs are
less than the emissions budgets for all the Metrolina area counties in the RFP SIP for the
2008 8-hour ozone standard. The Federal Register notice deeming the RFP SIP MVEB
adequate for transportation conformity is provided in Appendix A. The documentation
and results of the regional emissions analysis is provided in Appendix E.

Progress (RFP) plan, submitted on
November 30, 2009, by the North
Carolina Department of Air Quality (NC
DAQ), are adequate for transportation
conformity purposes. The bi-state
Charlotte moderate 1997 8-hour ozone
area is comprised of Charlotte-Gastonia
in North Carolina; and Rock Hill (a
portion of York County), South
Carolina. The North Carolina portion of
the Charlotte bi-state area is comprised
of the following sub-areas or counties:
Cabarrus, Gaston, partial of Iredell
(Davidson and Coddle Creek
Townships), Lincoln, Mecklenburg,
Rowan, and Union. North Carolina’s
RFP plan includes the required MVEBs
for volatile organic compounds (VOC),
and voluntary MVEBs for nitrogen
oxides (NOX). This action relates only to
the North Carolina portion of the
Charlotte bi-state area. EPA is
considering South Carolina’s RFP for
the applicable portion of York County in
a separate action. As a result of EPA’s
finding, which is being announced in
this notice, the North Carolina portion
of the Charlotte bi-state area must use
the sub-area MVEBs for future
conformity determinations for the 1997
8-hour ozone standard.
DATES: These sub-area MVEBs are
effective March 8, 2010.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This
notice is simply an announcement of a
finding that EPA has already made. EPA
Region 4 sent a letter to NC DAQ on
January 12, 2010, stating that the subarea MVEBs identified for the North
Carolina portion of the Charlotte bi-state
area in the 1997 8-hour ozone RFP plan,
submitted on November 30, 2009, are
adequate and must be used for
transportation conformity
determinations in the North Carolina
portion of the Charlotte bi-state area.
EPA posted the availability of the subarea MVEBs contained in the North
Carolina RFP plan on EPA’s Web site on
December 3, 2009, as part of the
adequacy process, for the purpose of
soliciting comments. EPA’s adequacy
comment period ran from December 3,

Transportation conformity is required
by section 176(c) of the Clean Air Act.
EPA’s conformity rule, 40 CFR Part 93,
requires that transportation plans,
programs and projects conform to state
air quality implementation plans and
establishes the criteria and procedures
for determining whether or not they do
so. Conformity to a state
implementation plan (SIP) means that
transportation activities will not
produce new air quality violations,
worsen existing violations, or delay
timely attainment of the national
ambient air quality standards.
The criteria by which EPA determines
whether a SIP’s MVEBs are adequate for
transportation conformity purposes are
outlined in 40 CFR 93.118(e)(4). EPA
has also described the process for
determining the adequacy of submitted
SIP budgets in a July 1, 2004, final
rulemaking entitled, ‘‘Transportation
Conformity Rule Amendments for the
New 8-hour Ozone and PM2.5 National
Ambient Air Quality Standards and
Miscellaneous Revisions for Existing
Areas; Transportation Conformity Rule
Amendments: Response to Court
Decision and Additional Rule Changes’’
(69 FR 40004). Please note that an
adequacy review is separate from EPA’s
completeness review, and it should not
be used to prejudge EPA’s ultimate
approval of the RFP plan for the North
Carolina portion of the Charlotte bi-state
area. Even if EPA finds a budget

February 12, 2013
The Mecklenburg Union Metropolitan Planning Organization (MUMPO), Gaston MPO (GUAMPO),
Cabarrus Rowan MPO (CRMPO) and the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOTrepresenting rural portions of the Metrolina non-attainment area) are proposing the following plan and
procedures to conduct a transportation conformity analysis. This plan is being submitted to the
interagency consultation partners for soliciting consensus before commencement of a full-scale
transportation conformity analysis. The plans and procedures may be revised as the MPO’s and
NCDOT proceed with the analysis. After consensus is reached; notification of changes will be made
to the interagency consultation partners.

Staff collected data as outlined in Attachment A. The partners updated previously collected 2000
base year data to 2005. Population, household, and student enrollment data were updated using
locally tracked data (see data sources listed below). Employment data, however, is not tracked
locally in a way that can be reliably converted to model input data. In 2002, an economist was
contracted to produce population, household, and employment estimates in five-year increments
from 2000 to 2035.The Regional partners used the economist’s 2005 employment to population
ratio estimate to calculate 2005 employment data. The data was allocated to Traffic Analysis
Zones (TAZs) based on the previous 2000 data set and local knowledge. Several partners
supplemented this process with Employment Security Commission data and / or 2005 Info USA
employment data.

Additional table notes and explanations:
County:

Ozone: For this conformity process the Metrolina ozone non-attainment area designated
for the 2008 Ozone Standard consists of 1 whole county and 6 partial counties
(Mecklenburg, Union (partial), Gaston (partial), Cabarrus (partial) Rowan (partial),
Lincoln (partial-donut) and Iredell (partial-donut). The ozone non-attainment area includes
four donut areas (Union, Gaston, Lincoln and Iredell) represented by the NCDOT in
cooperation with the Lake Norman Rural Planning Organization (RPO) and the Rocky
River RPO.
o It was decided (IC meeting date 10/2/12) for the 2008 Ozone NAAQS conformity
process (due by 7/20/13) that the full county areas in the Metrolina RFP SIP
MVEBs (1997 Ozone NAAQS-Cabarrus, Gaston, Iredell-partial, Lincoln,
Mecklenburg, Rowan and Union) will be used to demonstrate conformity. This is
allowed per the EPA multijurisdictional guidance dated 7/2012, page 44, Section
4.1.1
Conformity Analysis Approach:


The Metrolina Regional Modeling-MRM (vehicle miles traveled and speeds) that was used
for the conformity determination that was completed on 7/6/12 can also be used for this
conformity process. New MRM runs are not required (assuming that there have not been
any changes since the last conformity determination).
MOBILE6.2 model runs (and/or NCDAQ review of the emission factors) will be required
for all Metrolina area counties (Mecklenburg, Gaston, Union, Cabarrus, Rowan, Iredell and
Lincoln).
*Note: a dount area is an area outside the MPO boundary but within the non-attainment/maintenance area.
Model Status: Mecklenburg, Union, Cabarrus, Rowan, Gaston, and Lincoln, plus one partial
county (Iredell) are completely within the Metrolina Regional Model (MRM) boundary.
Emissions analysis years: The Metrolina area has a RFP SIP for the 8-hour ozone standard.
Emission analysis source: The VMT and speeds for the regional emissions analysis (REA) will
be derived from the MRM.

7. Land-Use Demographics Projections/Forecast:
In 2002, an economist was contracted to produce population, household, and employment
estimates in five-year increments from 2000 to 2035. The economist’s forecasting model is
calibrated statistically to 1990-2000 data for 228 metropolitan counties in the eastern US.
Refer to Demographic and Economic Forecasts for the Charlotte Region, December 8, 2003,
by Thomas R. Hammer, Ph.D. for more detailed information. Staff used the economist’s report
to benchmark projections for the five-year increments, and the regional partners came to a
consensus on the regional projections. The regional partners agreed to a regional population
ceiling of 3.5 million for 2035. Final population projections were substantially lower than this
ceiling. The Regional partners primarily relied on the employment estimates from the
economist.
MPO and RPO staff projected population, household, and employment data for 2015, 2025,
and 2035 through a top-down forecasting approach. Qualitative inputs to the projections
process include future land use plans, building permits data, transportation plans and other
capital improvements plans. These resources were used to geographically allocate growth by
traffic analysis zone across the region. The final and most important qualitative input was
“planners’ judgment”, meaning the collective knowledge of planning officials and staff about
the development patterns and development potential of specific areas within their jurisdictions.
MPO staff reviewed projections by county or city with local planners and presented population
and employment density maps to technical and elected boards.
Refer to Attachment A for the list of variables projected for use in the travel demand model.
8.
Travel Demand Model: Metrolina Regional Model (MRM)
The regional travel demand model is a four-step model developed for a 2-state, 11- county (9
whole, 2 partial) region (refer to Attachment B). The modeling area encompasses 4 MPOs and
2 RPOs.
As described previously, a multitude of land use and demographic data was collected as input
into the model. Additional data collected includes transit and highway network data as well as
multiple travel surveys. Transit data collected includes routes, headways, and travel times.
Refer to Attachment C for the highway network data dictionary. Following is a list of the
travel surveys completed:
2001 External Travel Survey;
2002 Household Travel Survey;
2003 Workplace Survey; and
41
2009 On-board Transit Survey of Express and Local Buses and South Corridor Light
Rail Transit (LRT) Survey and Counts
The model team has implemented several improvements to the Metrolina Regional Model.
Improvements that potentially affect VMT and travel speeds include:
2005 calibration using TransCAD 5.0, 2005 socio-economic data, and 2005
count data;
•
Mode choice model calibrated to the 2009 on-board transit survey and count
data, to reflect recent ridership information related to the CATS LRT project, which
opened in November 2007.
•
A number of other improvements were implemented to improve model operating speed and
efficiency. Minor network and modeling errors and bugs have been repaired when identified.
10. Mode Split / Mode Choice:
The nested logit mode-choice model is structured similar to the Houston-Galveston Area
Council’s regional travel model. Nesting and mode constants were developed using CATS’s
on-board ridership survey conducted in 2009.
Transit paths include in-vehicle travel time, out-of-vehicle time (walking / driving and waiting),
transfers, and direct cost (fare, parking). Four trip purposes are modeled. For the Home-Based
Work, Home-Based-Other, and Home-Based University trip purposes, the potential transit
Council’s regional travel model. Nesting and mode constraints were developed using CATS’s
on-board ridership survey conducted in 2009.
Walk, drive, and drop-off approaches are handled in the nesting structure. Parking is provided
at selected suburban stations.
The mode choice model was developed under contract with AECOM Consult
11. Local Street Count & VMT Estimate:
Vehicle miles of travel (VMT) – the sum of the distance that each vehicle travels during a
specified period (day, year, etc.) – is the most typical measure of the level of travel in an area.
Like most statistics, it is still impossible to actually measure. To do so, all vehicles would have
to be monitored all day. The most common method of estimating VMT uses traffic counts.
We have a large count database from CDOT, NCDOT, and SCDOT including counts from
2000 – 2006. Each count will be factored to the base year (2005). Average Daily Traffic
volumes will be factored to Average Weekday volumes. The adjusted base-year weekday
counts are then aggregated by County and functional class. The average (mean) volume for
each county / functional class will be multiplied by the number of road miles to obtain VMT.
For future year estimates, the travel demand model, calibrated to the base year counts and
VMT, will provide VMT for thoroughfares (VMT = assigned volume * length).
Local streets make up 60%-70% of the roadway miles, but a much smaller fraction of VMT.
Most serve to accumulate traffic from neighborhoods. The bulk of the trip is then made on
thoroughfares (that are modeled). Few local streets are included in the model. Counts are
sporadic and usually concentrated on local streets experiencing traffic problems. Many of the
42
local streets are represented by zonal centroid connectors in the model. We will use the
centroid connectors times 2 to better approximate actual local VMT. VMT derived with this
method compares favorably with local VMT estimated using street miles and assumed
volumes. The centroid method provides a better method of relating VMT to high growth
TAZs.
12. Rural (Donut) Area Projects
The rural areas do not develop long range transportation plans like the MPOs. The rural area’s
projects that are included in the conformity regional emissions analysis (REA) come from the
State TIP. It is NCDOT’s position that projects that are in the State TIP and have right of way
or construction phases scheduled in the first seven years should be included in the REA. In
addition, for rural areas adjacent to an MPO the MPO may extend projects outside their
boundary to a logical terminus. The MPO may include the portion outside of their MPO
boundary in the financial element of their LRTP.
13. VMT Adjustments:
No VMT adjustments
14. Motor Vehicle Emissions Budgets
RFP 8-hour Ozone SIP MVEBs. The Metrolina area is non-attainment for the 8-hour ozone

Iredell and Lincoln Counties that are outside of any MPO MAB
Each of these responsible organizations must make a conformity determination for its
respective area in order for all of the areas to be designated in conformity.
The following MPO/RPO/NCDOT resolutions will be needed:
• MUMPO Conformity Determination for the 2035 LRTP and 12-18 TIP
• GUAMPO Conformity Determination for the 2035 LRTP and 12-18 TIP
• CRMPO Conformity Determination for the 2035 LRTP and 12-18 TIP
• NCDOT conformity determination for the donut counties of Gaston, Union,
Iredell-partial and Lincoln
46
•
RPO conformity determination for the donut counties of Gaston, Union, Iredellpartial and Lincoln (OPTIONAL)
24. Other
Any reference to York County in this document has been removed since EPA has made
the 8-hour ozone designations. Although a portion of York County, South Carolina was
designated as part of the bi-state Charlotte 8-hour ozone nonattainment area, they are allowed
to demonstrate transportation conformity independent of the North Carolina portion of this
nonattainment area. Therefore, the planning assumptions and methodologies used for the
York County, South Carolina portion of this nonattainment area is reflected in a separate
transportation conformity determination that is generated by the Rock Hill-Fort Mill Area
Transit Study Metropolitan Planning Organization.

The techniques used for this conformity process are the following:
 VMT and speed will be done for 4 times of day (the 4 times of days are summed
for the regional emissions analysis)
• 6:30 am - 9:30 am
• 9:30 am - 3:30 pm
• 3:30 pm - 6:30 pm
• 6:30 pm - 6:30 am
o
Off model work (applied to all scenarios):
• ITS enhanced
• Signal System
• Vanpool
o Updated starts from the new model were added

ITEMS DISCUSSED:
MUMPO LRTP/TIP Amendment
The following LRTP/TIP amendments/scenarios were discussed:
I-4750HOT – Scenario N1 - construct one HOT lane HOV3+ in each direction along I-77 from Exit 28
(connecting to I-5405 HOT Lane Project) to Brawley School Rd (Exit 35) with construction ending
approximately 2500 ft. North of the NC 150 Structure (Exit 36).
• NB and SB HOT designation begin and end at Brawley School Rd Structure (Exit 35).
I-3311C – Scenario S1 - construct one HOT lane HOV3+ along I-77 from just North of the I-77/I-85
Interchange (connecting to I-5405 HOT Lane Project) to and along I-277;
• construct one HOT lane NB from I-277 to NB Southern terminus of I-5405;
63
•
•
construct extension of existing converted SB HOV lane to I-277.
along I-277 construct one HOT lane HOV 3+ in each direction from I-77 to N. Brevard St. (with
HOT lane designation beginning and ending at N Tryon St.)
NOTE: conversion of the existing SB HOV lane handled under I-5405
I-3311C – Scenario S2- construct two HOT lanes HOV3+ along I-77 from just North of the I-77/I-85
Interchange (connecting to I-5405 HOT Lane Project) to and along I-277:
• extend the converted SB HOV lane to I-277;
• construct an additional HOT lane HOV3+SB to I-277
• construct two HOT lanes HOV 3+ NB from I-277 to NB Southern terminus of I-5405;
• along I-277 construct one HOT lane HOV 3+ in each direction from I-77 to Caldwell Street (with
HOT lane designation beginning and ending at N Tryon St.)
NOTE: conversion of the existing SB HOV lane handled under I-5405
2008 Ozone NAAQS
This conformity process will also include a regional emission analysis for the 2008 Ozone
Standard for the Metrolina Area. A conformity determination for the Metrolina Area will be
required no later than 7/20/13. This work will include the Cabarrus Rowan MPO, the Gaston MPO
and MUMPO.
The Metrolina Area Counties designated under the 2008 Ozone NAAQS is provided below:
Cabarrus County (part)
Central Cabarrus Township, Georgeville
Township,
Harrisburg
Township, Kannapolis
Township, Midland Township, Mount Pleasant

CONFORMITY PROCESS SCHEDULE (CPS)
FHWA (Dancausse) went over the CPS
• It was noted that the transportation modeling/regional emissions analysis (REA) work
will begin on10/1/12 and end on 12/28/12. This timeframe is prior to the 3/2/13 date
(after this date the MOVES model has to be used for REA work) where the use of the
MOVES model will be required. Since transportation modeling/REA work begins prior
to the 3/2/13 date MOBILE6.2 can be used for this conformity determination. This
64
information will be documented in the consensus plan and the conformity determination
report.
CONSENSUS PLAN
FHWA (Dancausse) went over the consensus plan.
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Pages 2, 5 &11, MRM Model Team (Gallup), MUMPO (Cook) and Gaston MPO
(Yacobucci) need to verify if there is still a dount portion of Gaston and Union Counties
based on the partial county designations for the 2008 Ozone NAAQS.
Page 10, the IC partners will need to decide what emissions model will be used for this
conformity process. MOBILE6.2 can be used for this conformity process. NCDAQ
mentioned that EPA advised them to submit the Maintenance Plan (with MOVES
compatible MVEBS) for the Metrolina Region in time for an approval prior to 7/30/13
(This assumes that there will be no additional monitor violations for the region. If there
is an additional monitor violation then a maintenance plan cannot be submitted). So the
question proposed to the group and options available related to the emissions model is
the following
o Use MOBILE6.2 and coordinate with EPA to ensure that the maintenance plan
approval does not occur until this conformity process is complete (4/30/13) but
prior to 7/20/13.
o Use both MOBILE6.2 and the MOVES model for the REA and share that
information during the agency/public review periods and then select an analysis
prior to the transportation conformity determination.
A final decision on this topic was deferred until the 8/30/12 IC meeting. At that point
NCDAQ might have clearer picture on monitor data and whether or not a maintenance
plan can be submitted.
If the MOVES model is used for this conformity process it will likely add an additional
2.5 months to the current conformity process completion date of 4/30/13
Page 10 & 11, update the version of the MRM from MRM11v2 to MRM11v1.1
Page 12, item #23, iii, add the donut counties of Lincoln and Iredell
For this conformity determination the Metrolina Area RFP SIP MVEBs will be used for
the MUMPO LRTP/TIP amendment and the 2008 Ozone NAAQS Designation work.
EPA’s Multijurisdictional Guidance
(http://www.epa.gov/otaq/stateresources/transconf/regs/420b12046.pdf ) allows the use
of existing whole county MVEBs, even if the new area designated are partial counties.
The conformity determination for the 2008 Ozone NAAQS will require that all MPOs
(Cabarrus Rowan, Gaston and MUMPO) demonstrate conformity before the USDOT
conformity determination. This is covered EPA’s Multijurisdictional Guidance.
ACTION ITEMS:
• MUMPO (Cook) will need to share the I-4750HOT and the I-3311C project amendments
with the MUMPO TCC and TAC so they are prepared to take an action on 9/19/12, to
proceed with the transportation modeling/REA work for the projects.
• FHWA (Dancausse) will revise the consensus plan and will send out to the IC partners
65

•
MRM Model Team (Gallup), MUMPO (Cook) and Gaston MPO (Yacobucci) need to
verify if there is still a dount portion of Gaston and Union County based on the partial
county designations for the 2008 Ozone NAAQS.
The IC partners will need to decide what emissions model will be used for this process.
This will be a topic of discussion for the 8/30/12 IC meeting.
NCDAQ (Pasley) will provide MRM Model Team (Gallup) a township boundary map
(GIS shape file) for the 2008 Ozone NAAQS Designation for the Metrolina Region.
FHWA (Dancausse)/CDOT (Haynes) will document in the consensus plan and in the
conformity determination report the date that the transportation modeling work/REA
begins and ends.
NCDAQ (Pasley) will check to see if there is updated vehicle mix and vehicle age
distribution information that is available for use in this process.
If the MOVES model is used NCDAQ (Pasley) will need the populations for the partial
counties. MRM Model Team (Gallup), MUMPO (Cook), Gaston MPO (Yacobucci) and
Cabarrus Rowan MPO (Conrad) will provide this information.

ITEMS DISCUSSED:
Metrolina Ozone Monitoring Data
• At this time, all ozone monitors in the Metrolina area are in attainment of the 1997 ozone
NAAQS. The two most at-risk monitors in the Metrolina area are Garinger and County
Line, which both currently have unofficial 2010-2012 design values of 83 PPB. Their 4thhighest values for 2012 are 80 PPB and 85 PPB, respectively; to become non-attainment
for the 1997 standard, the 4th-highest values for both of these monitors would need to
increase another 5 PPB by the end of the year, to 90 PPB at County Line and 85 PPB at
Garinger. There has been no reading above 90 PPB at County Line thus far this year, and
4 days of 90 PPB+ readings would be needed to put County Line in non-attainment of the
1997 ozone NAAQS. There have been two readings greater than 85 PPB thus far at
Garinger this year, so only two days above 85 PPB would be needed to put Garinger in
non-attainment of the 1997 ozone NAAQS.
• Other monitors in the Metrolina area are at far less risk of violating the 1997 ozone
NAAQS. Unofficial 2010-2012 design values for the remaining Metrolina monitors are the
following: Monroe: 73 PPB, Crouse: 75 PPB, Arrowood: 77 PPB, Enochville: 77 PPB and
Rockwell: 78 PPB. For each of these sites, it would require 3-4 days of extremely high
daily ozone readings (e.g., 94 PPB+ at Arrowood, Code Red at the remaining sites) to go
into nonattainment of the 1997 ozone NAAQS, which at this point is all but impossible.
• NCDAQ (Pasley) mentioned if there are no additional monitor violations a maintenance
plan for the Metrolina Region will be submitted to EPA for approval by 7/20/13
68
Emissions Model Discussion MOBILE6.2 or MOVES
• It was decided that MOBILE6.2 (M6.2) will be used for this conformity process. The
MOVES model grace period is in effect and M6.2 can still be still be used through 3/2/13.
As long as the modeling and regional emissions analysis work begins prior to 3/2/13 and
there is IC partner agreement the M6.2 model can be used. For this conformity process the
modeling work begins on 10/1/12 and will end on 12/28/12. This information will be
included in the conformity determination report.
• It is critical that this conformity process is completed by 4/30/13. NCDAQ will submit a
maintenance plan for the Metrolina Region to EPA using MOVES compatible MVEBS for
approval prior to 7/20/13. If this conformity process (that will use the M6.2 model) is
delayed into July without a completed USDOT conformity determination and the Metrolina
Region Maintenance Plan is approved by EPA then all the conformity analysis work
completed using M6.2 will no longer be valid and the regional emissions analysis using the
MOVES model would need to be redone. This would add at least 6 additional months of
work to this conformity process.
• EPA (Smith) will work with FHWA (Dancausse) and NCDAQ (Boothe/Pasley) to coordinate
the approval of the Metrolina Region Maintenance Plan after the completion of this
conformity work on 4/30/13
MUMPO LRTP/TIP Amendment
The following LRTP/TIP amendments/scenarios were discussed:
Scenario #1
I-4750-HOT – Construct one HOT lane HOV3+ in each direction along I-77 from Exit 28
(connecting to I-5405 HOT Lane Project) to Brawley School Rd (Exit 35) with construction
ending approximately 5500 ft. north of the NC 150 Structure (Exit 36).
• NB and SB HOT designation begin and end at Brawley School Rd Structure (Exit 35).
I-3311C – Construct one HOT lane HOV3+ along I-77 from just north of the I-77/I-85
Interchange (connecting to I-5405 HOT Lane Project) to and along I-277;
• Construct one HOT lane NB from I-277 to NB Southern terminus of I-5405;
• Construct 1 HOT lane HOV 3+ from the southern terminus of the existing SB HOV Lane
to I-277.
• Along I-277 construct one HOT lane HOV 3+ in each direction from I-77 to N. Brevard
St. (with HOT lane designation beginning and ending at N Tryon St.)
NOTE: Conversion of the existing SB HOV lane handled under I-5405
Horizon Year: 2025
Scenario #2
I-4750-HOT – Construct one HOT lane HOV3+ in each direction along I-77 from Exit 28
(connecting to I-5405 HOT Lane Project) to Brawley School Rd (Exit 35) with construction
ending approximately 5500 ft. north of the NC 150 Structure (Exit 36).
• NB and SB HOT designation begin and end at Brawley School Rd Structure (Exit 35).
69
I-3311C – Construct two HOT lanes HOV3+ along I-77 from just North of the I-77/I-85
Interchange (connecting to I-5405 HOT Lane Project) to and along I-277:
• Construct 1 HOT lane HOV 3+ from the southern terminus of the existing SB HOT Lane
to I-277;
• Construct an additional HOT lane HOV3+ SB from the Southern terminus of I-5405 to I277;
• Construct two HOT lanes HOV 3+ NB from I-277 to NB Southern terminus of I-5405;
• Along I-277 construct one HOT lane HOV 3+ in each direction from I-77 to Caldwell
Street (with HOT lane designation beginning and ending at N Tryon St.)
NOTE: conversion of the existing SB HOV lane handled under I-5405
Horizon Year: 2025
NCDOT (Mabry) asked CDOT (Gallup) if two additional I-77 scenarios were added to the
modeling work how much additional time would be needed to complete the work. CDOT (Gallup)
said that two additional scenarios would double the modeling time from 2 months to 4 months
2008 Ozone NAAQS
This conformity process will also include a regional emission analysis for the 2008 Ozone
Standard for the Metrolina Area. A conformity determination for the Metrolina Area will be
required no later than 7/20/13. This work will include the following MPO’s: Cabarrus Rowan,
Gaston and Mecklenburg Union and the following counties: Cabarrus (partial), Gaston (partial)
Iredell (partial), Lincoln (partial), Mecklenburg, Rowan (partial) and Union (partial).
Per the EPA Multijurisdictional dated 7/2012, page 44, Section 4.1.1:
4.11 How is conformity demonstrated in a Scenario 2 area, when the budget applies to the entire area for the
relevant NAAQS?
In a Scenario 2 area, the relevant NAAQS area is smaller than and completely encompassed by an area designated for
another NAAQS of the same pollutant. In this situation, one of the following options must be met for the relevant NAAQS
area:
• The budget test using the subset or portion of the budget for the other NAAQS that applies to the relevant NAAQS area,
where such portion(s) can be reasonably identified (40 CFR 93.109(c)(2)(ii)(A)).
For example, a three-county area designated for the relevant NAAQS is entirely within a four-county area that has a
budget for another NAAQS, and the SIP identified emissions by county. In this case, the portion of that other NAAQS
budget that applies to the relevant NAAQS area can be identified, so it could be used to demonstrate conformity for the
relevant NAAQS;
OR
• The budget test using the budget for another NAAQS of the same pollutant for the entire area designated for that other
NAAQS. In this case, any additional emissions reductions beyond those addressed by control measures in the SIP for that
other NAAQS would be required to come from the relevant NAAQS area (40 CFR 93.109(c)(2)(ii)(B)).
For example, in the case of the three-county area, the four-county area’s budget for another NAAQS could be used for the
four-county area (i.e., the area designated for that other NAAQS) to demonstrate conformity for the three-county area (i.e.,
the relevant NAAQS area). Any reductions needed would have to come from within the three-county area.
The highlighted portion of the Multijurisdictional guidance (above) will be used for this conformity
process. We will use the full county 2007 Ozone NAAQS MVEBs to demonstrate conformity for
the 2008 Ozone NAAQS.
70
EPA (Smith) mentioned that in addition to the 2008 Ozone NAAQS conformity determination that
will be done for the entire Metrolina Region a conformity determination will also need to be done
for the 2007 Ozone Standard for the MUMPO LRTP/TIP amendment work. The reason for this is
that since the conformity determination is planned to be completed by 4/30/13, the 2007 Ozone
Standard is still in effect. FHWA (Dancausse) asked EPA (Smith) if conformity for the 2007
Ozone Standard could only cover the counties of Mecklenburg and Union since these are the only
two counties involved in the LRTP/TIP amendment work. EPA (Smith) was going to double check
to see if this approach is acceptable and will let the IC group know.
CONFORMITY PROCESS SCHEDULE (CPS)
FHWA (Dancausse) went over the CPS. No revisions were made to the CPS.
CONSENSUS PLAN
FHWA (Dancausse) went over the consensus plan.
• The document was revised to show that there is still a donut area for Gaston and Union
Counties

EPA (Smith) mentioned that in addition to the 2008 Ozone NAAQS that a conformity
determination for the entire Metrolina Region a conformity determination will also need
to be done for the 1997 Ozone Standard for the MUMPO LRTP/TIP amendment work.
The reason is that since the conformity determination is planned to be completed by
4/30/12, the 1997 Ozone Standard is still in effect. FHWA (Dancausse) asked EPA
(Smith) if conformity for the 1997 Ozone Standard could only cover the counties of

CDOT (Haynes) had expressed some uncertainty about how the motor vehicle
emissions resulting from the new State I/M rules exempting the 3 most recent car model
years from I/M would be modeled by MOBILE6.2. CDOT (Haynes) and NCDAQ
(Pasley) will work together to figure out how this will be accomplished. This action item
is completed. NCDAQ Pasley provided the information provided below in an email dated
to Eldewins Haynes dated 10.1.12:
Eldewins – you are correct. For modeling years 2014 and later, the end year listed in the “I/M

ITEMS DISCUSSED:
Emissions Model Discussion MOBILE6.2 or MOVES
• It was decided that MOBILE6.2 (M6.2) will be used for this conformity process. The
MOVES model grace period is in effect and M6.2 can still be still be used through 3/2/13.
As long as the modeling and regional emissions analysis work begins prior to 3/2/13 and
there is IC partner agreement the M6.2 model can be used. For this conformity process the
modeling work begins on 10/1/12 and will end on 12/28/12. This information will be
included in the conformity determination report.
• It is critical that this conformity process is completed by 4/30/13. NCDAQ will submit a
maintenance plan for the Metrolina Region to EPA using MOVES compatible MVEBS for
approval prior to 7/20/13. If this conformity process (that will use the M6.2 model) is
delayed into July without a completed USDOT conformity determination and the Metrolina
Region Maintenance Plan is approved by EPA then all the conformity analysis work
completed using M6.2 will no longer be valid and the regional emissions analysis using the
MOVES model would need to be redone. This would add at least 6 additional months of
work to this conformity process.
• EPA (Smith) will work with FHWA (Dancausse) and NCDAQ (Boothe/Pasley) to coordinate
the approval of the Metrolina Region Maintenance Plan after the completion of this
conformity work on 4/30/13.
75
MUMPO LRTP/TIP Amendment
There were 5 scenarios (all HOV 3+) for modeling that was provided to the group for discussion.
MUMPO and NCDOT could not come to an agreement on which scenarios to model for
conformity. The modeling work is on hold until there is some agreement between MUMPO
and NCDOT on what scenarios will be modeled for conformity. It is likely that the
completion date of 4.30.13 for this conformity process will not be met
2008 Ozone NAAQS
This conformity process will also include a regional emission analysis for the 2008 Ozone
Standard for the Metrolina Area. A conformity determination for the Metrolina Area will be
required no later than 7/20/13.
Per the EPA Multijurisdictional dated 7/2012, page 44, Section 4.1.1:
4.11 How is conformity demonstrated in a Scenario 2 area, when the budget applies to the entire area for the
relevant NAAQS?
76
In a Scenario 2 area, the relevant NAAQS area is smaller than and completely encompassed by an area designated for
another NAAQS of the same pollutant. In this situation, one of the following options must be met for the relevant NAAQS
area:
• The budget test using the subset or portion of the budget for the other NAAQS that applies to the relevant NAAQS area,
where such portion(s) can be reasonably identified (40 CFR 93.109(c)(2)(ii)(A)).
For example, a three-county area designated for the relevant NAAQS is entirely within a four-county area that has a
budget for another NAAQS, and the SIP identified emissions by county. In this case, the portion of that other NAAQS
budget that applies to the relevant NAAQS area can be identified, so it could be used to demonstrate conformity for the
relevant NAAQS;
OR
• The budget test using the budget for another NAAQS of the same pollutant for the entire area designated for that other
NAAQS. In this case, any additional emissions reductions beyond those addressed by control measures in the SIP for that
other NAAQS would be required to come from the relevant NAAQS area (40 CFR 93.109(c)(2)(ii)(B)).
For example, in the case of the three-county area, the four-county area’s budget for another NAAQS could be used for the
four-county area (i.e., the area designated for that other NAAQS) to demonstrate conformity for the three-county area (i.e.,
the relevant NAAQS area). Any reductions needed would have to come from within the three-county area.
The highlighted portion of the Multijurisdictional guidance (above) will be used for this conformity
process. We will use the full county 2007 Ozone NAAQS MVEBs to demonstrate conformity for
the 2008 Ozone NAAQS.
EPA (Smith) mentioned that in addition to the 2008 Ozone NAAQS conformity determination that
will be done for the entire Metrolina Region a conformity determination will also need to be done
for the 2007 Ozone Standard for the MUMPO LRTP/TIP amendment work. The reason for this is
that since the conformity determination is planned to be completed by 4/30/13, the 2007 Ozone
Standard is still in effect. FHWA (Dancausse) asked EPA (Smith) if conformity for the 2007
Ozone Standard could only cover the counties of Mecklenburg and Union since these are the only
two counties involved in the LRTP/TIP amendment work. EPA (Smith) was going to double check
to see if this approach is acceptable and will let the IC group know.
EPA’s email response is provided below:
Conformity Demonstration for the 1997 and the 2008 Ozone Standard
•
Confirmed, Yes, Mecklenburg, Union and associated donut areas will be required to demonstrate conformity
for the 1997 (not 2007) Ozone standard because of the Plan and TIP Amendment for the HOT lanes.
•
Also, to clarify how the budget test will be demonstrated in the highlighted option below, if you use this
highlighted option for the 2008 smaller boundary area which includes partial and donut (Cabarrus, Gaston,
Lincoln, Rowan, Iredell and Union) counties and the one whole (Mecklenburg) county area will use the entire
2008 RFP VOC and NOx subarea budget that has been deemed adequate as the conformity test.
If this area can scale the TDM model down to capture the VMTs and speeds and apply the associated
emissions factors for the new smaller boundaries, then this scale down modeling will become a "subset or
portion" of the 2008 RFP VOC and NOx subarea budget and this "subset or portion" of the budget will be the
conformity test used to demonstrate conformity for the 2008 standard. This is the first budget test option (nonhighlighted section) referred to below:
•
Let me know if there are any further questions.
77
It was decided for the 2008 Ozone NAAQS conformity process that the full county areas in the
Metrolina RFP SIP MVEBs and the Metrolina Area designated for the 1997 Ozone Standard (i.e,
Cabarrus, Gaston, Iredell (partial), Lincoln, Mecklenburg, Rowan, and Union) will be utilized to
demonstrate conformity for 2008 Ozone NAAQS due by 7/20/13. It is the option described under
the second highlighted paragraph (provided above) in EPA’s Multijurisdictional Guidance (dated
7/2012) above.
In order to demonstrate conformity for the 2008 Ozone Standard the following would need to
occur:
• The Metrolina Regional Modeling – MRM (vehicle miles traveled and speeds) that was
used for the conformity determination that was competed on 7/6/12, could also be used for
this conformity process. A new MRM is not required (assuming that there have not been
any changes since the last conformity determination).
• The WMT and Speed will be used to run the MOBILE6.2 model.
• The MOBILE6.2 model will need to be updated to include the changes in the I/M program in
NC.
• The consensus plan and CPS would be updated to reflect just doing the conformity work for
the 2008 Ozone Standard
CONFORMITY PROCESS SCHEDULE (CPS)
FHWA (Dancausse) went over the CPS. No revisions were made to the CPS.
78
CONSENSUS PLAN
FHWA (Dancausse) went over the consensus plan and pointed out revisions that were made as
suggested at the last IC meeting. There is still one revision pending from the last meeting and it is
detailed as an action item below.
OTHER
It was discussed that if there could not be a resolution reached between MUMPO and NCDOT on
the I-77 project scenarios related to the MUMPO LRTP/TIP amendments that we would continue
the conformity work for the 2008 Ozone NAAQS under a separate conformity process. This will
eliminate the possibility of jeopardizing the 2008 Ozone NAAQS deadline of 7/20/13 by the delays
in the MUMPO I-77 LRTP/TIP amendment work. This will be an agenda item for the next IC
meeting to be held in November.
ACTION ITEMS:
1. MUMPO and NCDOT need to agree on what projects will be modeled for conformity
2. FHWA (Dancausse)/CDOT (Haynes) will document in the consensus plan and in the
conformity determination report (CDR) the date that the transportation modeling work/REA

will be included in the CDR
5. EPA (Smith) will work with FHWA (Dancausse) and NCDAQ (Boothe/Pasley) to coordinate
the approval of the Metrolina Region Maintenance Plan after the completion of this
conformity work on 4/30/13.
6. FHWA (Dancausse) will provide meeting minutes. This item is complete
ITEMS DISCUSSED:
MUMPO LRTP/TIP Amendment
NCDOT has hired a consultant (Gresham/Padgett) to model the 5 project scenarios. The
modeling work will include running the Metrolina Regional Model (MRM), the MOBILE6.2 model
and determining emissions for all the impacted counties of Mecklenburg and Union. The NCDOT
consultant (Padgett) had some questions related to the project scenarios FHWA (Batuzich)
answered the questions. FHWA (Batuzich) will revise the project scenarios document (I-77 HOT
Project Description and Scenario Analysis for AQ Conformity TIP# I-4750, I-5405 & I-3311CRevised 11/13/12) to provide further clarity on the project scenarios for modelers and the
interagency partners. The revised project scenario document is provided as a separate document
to these meeting minutes.
2008 Ozone NAAQS Conformity Process
It was decided that the 2008 Ozone NAAQS process will be separated from the MUMPO
LTRP/TIP Amendment (TIP# I-4750, I-5405 & I-3311C). The reason for this is to ensure that the
area can meet the conformity requirement of the 2008 Ozone NAAQS independent of MUMPO
LRTP/TIP Amendment work. There is still some uncertainty related to the timely completion of the
MUMPO LRTP/TIP Amendment work. FHWA (Dancausse) will revise/create the consensus plans
for the two conformity processes. The two processes will utilize the conformity process schedule
dated 7/25/12.
CONFORMITY PROCESS SCHEDULE (CPS)
FHWA (Dancausse) went over the CPS. FHWA will make some revisions to item #37 on the CPS
to give NCDAQ more time to complete their work since 5 scenarios will be analyzed instead of the
original 2. The revised CPS will be shared with NCDAQ (Pasley/Hildebrandt) to make sure they
agree with the revisions and then it will be shared with the group
CONSENSUS PLAN
FHWA (Dancausse) went over the consensus plan and pointed out revisions that were made as
suggested at the last IC meeting. Page 10, item g, needs to be revised to remove the following:
81
“Vehicles from the last 3 years will not be subject to the I/M emissions test requirements (antitampering requirements still apply)”.
FHWA (Dancausse) will create two consensus plans: one for the MUMPO LRTP/TIP Amendment
work and the other for 2008 NAAQS Ozone Standard and will share it with IC partners for their
review and comment.
OTHER ITEMS
The Lawyers Road project will not be a part of this conformity work
NCDAQ (Pasley) may have some additional questions in the future from the modeling consultants
related to local starts and road type data.
ACTION ITEMS:
1 FHWA (Dancausse)/CDOT (Haynes) will need to be included the following information in
the CDR:
o Document in the consensus plan and in the conformity determination report (CDR)
the date that the transportation modeling work/REA begins and ends
o It was decided that for this conformity process the MOBILE6.2 (M6.2) model will be
used. The MOVES model grace period is in effect and the M6.2 can still be still be
used through 3/2/13. As long as the modeling and regional emissions analysis work
begins prior to 3/2/13 and there is IC partner agreement the M6.2 model can be
used. For this conformity process the modeling work begins on 10/1/12 and will end
on 12/28/12
2 EPA (Smith) will work with FHWA (Dancausse) and NCDAQ (Pasley) to coordinate the
approval of the Metrolina Region Maintenance Plan after the completion of this conformity
work on 4/30/13.
3 FHWA (Batuzich) will revise the project scenarios to clarify some consultant modeling
questions. This is complete and the document is titled: “I-77 HOT Project Description and
Scenario Analysis for AQ Conformity (TIP# I-4750, I-5405 & I-3311C), Revised 11/13/12”this item is complete
4 FHWA (Dancausse) will revise/create consensus plans
5 FHWA (Dancausse) will revise the consensus plan (item number 37) to allow more time for
the NCDAQ emission factor work
6 FHWA (Dancausse) will draft the meeting minutes

ITEMS DISCUSSED:
• Updated 2011 vehicle age distribution (VAD) and 2010 vehicle mix will be used for both the
2008 Ozone Standard work and the MUMPO LRTP/TIP amendment work (TIP# I-4750, I5405 & I-3311C). This was discussed by the IC partners and everyone was ok with this
approach
• The VAD (2011) will be used by county instead of universal age distribution data that was
used in the past. The reason for this is that the data received from NCDOT is broken down
by county in preparation for use with the MOVES2010b model (even though we will be
using MOBILE6 for this conformity work). This was discussed by the IC partners and
everyone was ok with this approach
• EPA (Smith) mentioned for the MUMPO LRTP/TIP Amendment I-4750, I-5405 & I-3311C
process conformity has to be done for both the 1997 and 2008 ozone standard because the
1997 standard is still in effect until 7/20/13. Will need to include language in the CDR to
mention that conformity is being done for both standards. The REA will be the same for
both standards.
ACTION ITEMS:
1 MUMPO LRTP/TIP Amendment I-4750, I-5405 & I-3311C
a. NCDAQ will provide CDOT (Haynes/Gallup) updated 2011 VAD and 2010 vehicle
mix files for the MUMPO LRTP/TIP Amendment I-4750, I-5405 & I-3311C by
1/14/13
b. The NCDOT consultant (Padget/Gresham) will provide NCDAQ with MOBILE6
emission factors and emissions for the MUMPO LRTP/TIP Amendment work (I4750, I-5405 & I-3311C) by 1/22/13
c. NCDAQ will complete the review and QC of the emission factors and emissions by

ITEMS DISCUSSED:
• Modeling Discussion: At the January IC meeting it was decided that the vehicle age
distribution (VAD) would be used by county instead of the universal age distribution used in
the past. The reason for this method is that the data received from NCDOT is broken down
by county in preparation for use with the MOVES2010b model and would be easier to use it
this way (less manipulation of the data). Using this approach caused difficulties with the
Gaston County regional emissions analysis (REA). To remedy this issue it was decided
that the VAD should be done consistent with past conformity determinations (a combination
of Mecklenburg/Gaston Counties VAD and the other areas would use NCAGE). This was
discussed by the IC partners and everyone was ok with this modified approach
• MUMPO LRTP/TIP Amendment I-4750, I-5405 & I-3311C
o NCDAQ sent the updated VAD files to the NCDOT modeling consultant (Gresham)
on 2/5/13
o NCDOT modeling consultant (Gresham) will provide emissions to NCDAQ within 3
days (2/8/13)
o It will take NCDAQ (Pasley/Hildebrandt) approximately one week (2/15/13) to
QA/QC the emissions work
o MUMPO will approve the release of the draft CDR during their 2/20/13 TAC meeting
and approve the LRTP/TIP amendment and the conformity determination during
their 5/15/13 meeting
o CDOT (Haynes) will complete the draft CDR by 2/20/13
• 2008 Ozone NAAQS Conformity Process
o NCDAQ sent the updated VAD files to CDOT (Haynes) on 2/5/13
o CDOT (Haynes) will complete the emissions within a couple of days (2/7/13) and
provide it to NCDAQ (Pasley/Hildebrandt)
o It will take NCDAQ (Pasley/Hildebrandt) approximately one week (2/15/13) to
QA/QC the emissions work
o MUMPO will approve the release of the draft CDR during their 2/20/13 TAC meeting
and approve the LRTP/TIP amendment and the conformity determination during
their 5/15/13 meeting
o The Cabarrus Rowan MPO and the Gaston MPO approved the release of the draft
CDR during their January TAC meetings and will approve the conformity
determination during their March TAC meetings
o CDOT (Haynes) will complete the draft CDR by 2/20/13
• Both conformity processes will need to be completed no later than the first week of
June 2013. NCDAQ will submit a maintenance plan for the 1997 ozone standard to
EPA and request their approval no later than 7/20/13. Once EPA approves the 1997
ozone maintenance plan the SIP MVEBs must be used for the conformity
determination REA. The danger with this is if the USDOT conformity determination
is not completed prior to the EPA approval of the 1997 ozone maintenance plan, then
the regional emissions analysis will need to be redone (to compare to the new 1997
ozone maintenance plan MVEBs). In addition to redoing the REA, the following will
need to occur: draft conformity determination will need to go out for agency/public
review/comment, MPO TAC adoptions/conformity determinations and final Federal
reviews. This will delay these conformity processes approximately 6 to 8 months.
Additional Information (Since the 2/5/13 IC meeting was held)

•
Jamal Alavi email dated 2/11/13:
o Just a quick heads up, we have been informed by the I-77 Concessionaires that
based on their analysis of time, they will not be able to finish construction of the
central section of the I-77 HOT project by 2015. Therefore we will have to move the
Central section’s Horizon year to 2025 which requires moving the central section
from the 2015 and into 2025. Good news is that the 2025 has all the sections in it
and we already have the 2015 no-build (with existing HOV lanes) run by Craig (for
the traffic forecasting) and he will be able to complete the AQ runs within a couple
of days.
o I apologize for this change and please let me know if you have any questions. We
will inform the entire interagency team as well.

I. Overview The Mecklenburg ‐ Union Metropolitan Planning Organization (MUMPO) is the Federally designated regional transportation planning entity for all of Mecklenburg County and the western and central, urbanized portions of Union County. It is committed to meaningful public involvement in the regional transportation planning process. MUMPO believes public participation is not a simple “add on” or “after thought,” but a method that guarantees high quality transportation planning. It maintains that successful public involvement ensures effective transportation planning by including those whose everyday lives are critically affected by how they get to work, home, school, stores, and services. MUMPO maintains that educating the public about the transportation planning process is key to real participation, as is including all segments of the population in that process. In order to obtain successful public involvement, MUMPO is dedicated to achieving the following goals: • Actively soliciting participation, not just waiting for it • Creating meaningful access to decision‐making information, not just generating data • Respecting and seriously considering input that is received, not just collecting it • Demonstrating that input is incorporated, not just filing it away • Providing meaningful opportunities for input, not just fulfilling regulations. MUMPO is dedicated to transportation planning with the entire public’s full involvement. While Federal laws and regulations set a framework for public involvement in transportation planning, MUMPO seeks to go beyond the letter of these laws and regulations to fulfill the true spirit of full public participation. A. MUMPO MUMPO is responsible for coordinating transportation planning activities, providing long range transportation policy and overseeing the Federal transportation planning process including full and fair public participation. It is governed by a policy board that consists of elected officials representing Charlotte, Cornelius, Davidson, Huntersville, Matthews, Mecklenburg County, Mint Hill, and Pineville in Mecklenburg County. Indian Trail, Monroe, Stallings, Union County, Waxhaw, Weddington, Wesley Chapel and Wingate are represented by their elected officials from Union County. A member of the North Carolina Department of Transportation is also a voting member. The policy board also includes non‐voting members from the Charlotte‐Mecklenburg Planning Commission, Union County Planning Board, North Carolina Turnpike Authority and the Federal Highway Administration. In addition, the Charlotte‐Mecklenburg Planning Department is the MPO’s lead planning agency; the Charlotte Department of Transportation provides additional staff support to MUMPO. 167
MUMPO’s mission is to develop, promote, and ensure implementation of a transportation planning process and to support the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act‐A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA‐LU) planning process by: • Supporting the economic vitality of the MUMPO region; • Increasing the safety and security of the transportation system for motorized and non‐motorized users; • Increasing the accessibility and mobility options available for people and freight; • Protecting the environment, promoting energy conservation, and improving quality of life; • Enhancing the integration and connectivity of the transportation system across and between modes of people and freight; • Promoting efficient transportation system management and operation; • Emphasizing the preservation of the existing transportation system; and, • Promoting an efficient relationship between land use and transportation that maximizes the use of existing and future public programs and infrastructure. Activities MUMPO performs include the following: • Overseeing and managing the planning process in a manner that complies with current Federal requirements; and, • Providing policy direction and oversight to meet Federal and State environmental requirements for attaining applicable air and water quality standards. The Public Involvement Plan will assist MUMPO in carrying out its mission in an open process that provides complete information, timely public notice, full public access to key decisions, and support for early and continued involvement. B. Federal Requirements The Federal laws and processes covering public participation in transportation planning include the following: • Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act­A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA­LU) • Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 • Executive Order 12898, Federal Actions to Address Environmental Justice in Minority Populations and Low­Income Populations (1994) • Executive Order 13166, Improving Access to Services for Persons with Limited English Proficiency (2000) • The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504), and the Rehabilitation Act Amendments of 1998 (Section 508) • The Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990. 168
1. SAFETEA­LU As mandated in SAFETEA­LU and other supporting Federal regulations, Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPO) must establish, periodically review and update public involvement processes. These processes should assure early and continued public awareness of and access to the transportation decision‐making process. The planning regulations contain a number of performance standards for public involvement, including: • Providing reasonable public access to technical and policy information used in the development of plans and Transportation Improvement Programs (TIP) • Requiring adequate public notice of public involvement activities and time for public review and comment at key decision points • Demonstrating explicit consideration and response to public input received during the planning and program development processes • The use of visualization techniques • Ensuring that all documents are available in an electronic format. 2. Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 states that “no person in the United States shall, on the grounds of race, color or national origin be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.” 3. Executive Order 12898, Federal Actions to Address Environmental Justice in Minority Populations and Low­Income Populations (1994) The basis of Executive Order 12898 lies in Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. It directs that “each Federal agency shall make achieving environmental justice part of its mission by identifying and addressing, as appropriate, disproportionately high and adverse human health or environmental effects of its programs, policies, and activities on minority populations and low‐income populations.” Executive Order 12898 defines minority populations as belonging to any of the following groups: • Black – a person having origins in any of the black racial groups of Africa; • Hispanic – a person of Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Central or South American, or other Spanish culture or origin, regardless of race; • Asian American – a person having origins in any of the original peoples of the Far East, Southeast Asia, the Indian subcontinent, or the Pacific Islands; and, • American Indian and Alaskan Native – a person having origins in any of the original people of North America and who maintains cultural identification through tribal affiliation or community recognition. 169
It defines low‐income populations as those whose household incomes (or in the case of a community or group, whose median household income) is at or below the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services poverty guidelines. The three fundamental environmental justice principles include: • To avoid, minimize, or mitigate disproportionately high and adverse human health and environmental effects, including social and economic effects, on minority populations and low‐income populations; • To ensure full and fair participation by all potentially affected communities in the transportation decision‐making process; and, • To prevent the denial of, reduction in, or significant delay in the receipt of benefits by minority and low‐income populations. 4. Executive Order 13166, Improving Access to Services for Persons with Limited English Proficiency (2000) The basis of Executive Order 13166 lies in Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. It requires that Federal agencies work to ensure that recipients of Federal financial assistance provide “meaningful access” to their limited English proficiency applicants and beneficiaries. 5. The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504), and the Rehabilitation Act Amendments of 1998 (Section 508) The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 mandates that public facilities be made accessible to people with disabilities and has been the basis for requiring that transit buses and street curbs be retrofitted or reconstructed with appropriate equipment and design details. The Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504) states that “no qualified individual with a disability in the United States shall be excluded from, denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under” any program or activity that receives Federal financial assistance. The Rehabilitation Act Amendments of 1998 (Section 508) states that Federal agencies must ensure that electronic and information technology is accessible to employees and members of the public with disabilities to the extent it does not pose an “undue burden.” 6. The Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 The Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 establishes a timetable and program to improve the nation’s air quality, emphasizes mobile source emissions, and requires the Environmental Protection Agency to invoke penalties if states failed to submit adequate plans to attain standards. The Amendments’ rating system categorizes the MUMPO region as a “non‐
attainment” area for the eight‐hour ozone standard (and as maintenance for carbon monoxide). MUMPO is part of the eight‐county, Metrolina non‐attainment region. In non‐
attainment areas, the air quality conformity documentation for the Transportation Improvement Program and long range transportation plan must be available for public review and comment before any formal action is taken. 170

II.
The Strategy & Policy Guide The following is a list of strategies that can be used to enhance and support public outreach and education in the regional transportation planning and decision‐making process. Not all strategies are necessarily used every year and not all of these strategies will necessarily be implemented. As MUMPO forms new relationships and bolsters existing relationships with its different constituencies, new strategies may also be adopted. A. Identify and Build Relationships with Stakeholders A stakeholder is defined as any person or group affected by a transportation plan, program, or project, including those who may not be aware they are affected. In accordance with SAFETEA‐LU, stakeholders will include “citizens, affected public agencies, representatives of transportation agency employees, freight shippers, providers of freight transportation services, private providers of transportation, representatives of users of public transportation, representatives of users of pedestrian walkways and bicycle transportation facilities, representatives of the disabled, and other interested parties . . . (CFR 450.316) ” Citizens will include the general public; environmental, health, neighborhood, citizen, and civic organizations; and, traditionally underserved communities such as people with disabilities, and/or low‐income, minority, and elderly. Individual stakeholders and representatives of stakeholder groups will be included in MUMPO’s database. MUMPO will continually work to identify new stakeholders interested in or affected by the transportation planning process. With their prior consent, the names and addresses of all those attending MUMPO functions or meetings, or those e‐mailing, telephoning, faxing and writing MUMPO will be added to the database. Ongoing meetings with stakeholders will be conducted to share information on a one‐to‐
one basis about MUMPO’s public involvement process. These meetings will also give stakeholders an opportunity to provide individualized feedback to MUMPO’s public involvement staff. B. Develop and Implement a Plan to Reach Non­participating Minority and Low­Income Populations Particular emphasis will be put on reaching people who have traditionally not been participants in the transportation planning process. Traditional non‐participants include persons who are low‐income, minority, elderly, and disabled; have no vehicles; are low literate or have limited English proficiency. Staff will identify and meet with organizations and community leaders who represent these populations. The purpose of these meetings will be to build relationships with the groups and leaders as well as identify strategies for bringing traditional non‐participants into the transportation planning process. The identified strategies will be implemented in 171
cooperation with the organizations and community leaders. Detailed plans for identifying and meeting with groups and leaders and implementing strategies will be developed. Strategies may incorporate the following: • having meetings in transit accessible locations or in the community for those who do not have personal transportation • holding meetings at times of the day or night that reflect the public’s work schedule and the elderly’s safety concerns • holding meetings on days of the week or weekend when it is convenient for the public to attend • piggy‐backing on existing events to reduce time away from family and work • conducting meetings and providing materials in a language that can be understood by the community C. Develop an Outreach and Education Program The outreach and education program will be designed to educate the public about the regional transportation planning process and its relevance to all stakeholders. English and Spanish materials produced as part of this program will include such tools as pamphlets and brochures. These brochures can be used in various presentations and for distribution. It will be necessary to periodically review and update the program and accompanying materials. Special considerations and arrangements will be made to design a program that is tailored for non‐participants such as minority, low‐income, those who have no vehicles, those with limited English proficiency, and disabled communities. These considerations will include developing materials specifically targeted to those communities. D. Publicize MUMPO Activities Media coverage will be actively cultivated to ensure that mainstream and ethnic radio, television and newspaper outlets understand the importance of providing information on transportation planning activities. In addition, articles, news releases and/or media alerts will be disseminated to announce public review and comment periods for MUMPO’s Long Range Transportation Plan, the Long Range Transportation Plan amendments, Transportation Involvement Program, Unified Planning Work Program, Public Involvement Plans and other major activities. In order to do so, a current list of media outlets such as mainstream and ethnic television, radio, and cable stations, and newspapers, including small community‐based publications will be established and maintained. E. Partner with Outreach Professionals Establishing partnerships with member jurisdictions and agency outreach professionals will help MUMPO reach a greater number of affected communities and help to promote best practices. Such professionals are often aware of local issues, have a good 172
understanding of the various communities and community networks within their jurisdictions, and can provide interpretation and translation services. In addition, utilizing their resources to publicize activities and events will help MUMPO reach a broader audience. F. Establish a Speaker’s Bureau The Speaker’s Bureau will consist of MUMPO members, staff and other volunteers who can speak to civic groups, professional organizations, neighborhood associations, and other groups about the regional transportation planning process. Members of the speaker’s bureau will present information in order to educate the public about the MPO process. In addition, the public will be given opportunities to educate MUMPO about local issues and needs. In addition, the availability of speakers will be marketed to interested groups. The public and organizations involved in the transportation planning process will be asked to identify speaker topics that would be useful to them. G. Maintain a Website MUMPO’s website provides information about MUMPO and its activities, as well as the transportation planning activities of its member jurisdictions. The website will allow for access to public documents such as, but not limited to, the Transportation Improvement Program, Long‐Range Transportation Plan, Unified Planning Work Program, Public Involvement Plan, as well as meeting agendas and minutes. MUMPO’s website should provide an opportunity for the public to provide input and formal comments on an ongoing basis through e‐mail links. In addition, a “frequently asked questions” section will be provided. The website will be maintained in compliance with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act Amendments of 1998. H. Produce and Distribute Brochure MUMPO has developed a brochure in English and Spanish dedicated to explaining MUMPO and its roles and responsibilities, and should be periodically reviewed to ensure that it is presenting accurate information. If requested, the brochure should be provided in a large print format. The brochure will be available online and distributed to all identified stakeholders and made available at libraries, government buildings and MUMPO’s offices, and other locations. Specialized brochures may be needed to provide timely information on targeted topics. I. Produce and Distribute Newsletters MUMPO should produce a quarterly newsletter in English and Spanish dedicated to MUMPO activities including the Long Range Transportation Planning process. If requested, the newsletter should be provided in a large print format. The newsletter should include information about technical issues written in layman’s terms for the general public. In addition, the newsletter should provide the public with periodic updates of MUMPO’s 173
activities. The newsletter should be available online and distributed to all identified stakeholders, made available at libraries, government buildings and MUMPO’s offices and other locations. Additionally, specialized newsletters may be needed to provide timely information on targeted topics. J. Conduct Information Workshops Information workshops should be conducted on topics associated with the transportation planning process. Such workshops should be designed to educate participants on specific topics, e.g., transportation modeling, intelligent transportation systems, elderly travel, air quality, etc. Information workshops provide a means for allowing participants to express their ideas and concerns in an informal setting. Information workshops will be conducted on an as needed basis. K. Hold Open Houses Open houses provide an informal setting for the public to access general information on the transportation planning process. Open houses have no fixed agendas and no formal presentations. MPO technical staff will be on hand to answer questions and provide details on a one‐on‐one basis. Open houses may precede public meetings. L. Public Input at MUMPO Board Meetings The MUMPO board holds regular meetings in which all formal business is conducted. At each meeting, the public is provided with an opportunity to address MUMPO on any issue related to the transportation planning process. Anyone wishing to speak can sign up at the beginning of the meeting or contact MUMPO’s secretary prior to the meeting. The public may engage in the discussion of action and information items on the agenda at the discretion of the Chair. M. Public Input at MUMPO Committee Meetings The public may attend MUMPO committee and subcommittee meetings and may contribute to the discussion at the discretion of the chair. Those interested in attending and participating may request being placed on any and all committee and subcommittee mailing lists. N. Conduct Surveys Surveys may be used to gather information on people’s perceptions, preferences, and practices. In areas were low literacy exists surveys may be conducted in person. Major surveys will be done on an as‐needed basis. In areas where the public is literate, surveys may be mailed, e‐mailed and/or distributed by using MUMPO’s website. Surveys may require Spanish translation services. 174
III. General Guidelines These guidelines provide the overall structure in which public involvement strategies can be implemented: • Open meetings; • Access by persons with disabilities; • Subcommittee meetings; • Adequate notice; • Public participation opportunities at MUMPO meetings; • MUMPO agenda items; • MUMPO action items; • Public participation in agenda items; • Public comments; • Time period for public comments; and, • Format of public meetings. A. Open Meetings All MUMPO meetings will be open to the public and subject to the North Carolina Open Meetings Law. The minutes and all materials presented at these meetings will be public record and will be available for review at MUMPO offices and on the website. The availability of these records will be stated on MUMPO’s website and can be distributed on request. B. Access by Persons with Disabilities All MUMPO meetings will be held in facilities that are accessible to people with disabilities. MUMPO’s website will be in compliance with the Rehabilitation Act Amendments of 1998 (Section 508). Where it is permitted, clear directional signs will be posted at outdoor entrances of buildings. C. Adequate Notice MUMPO will provide adequate notice of all meetings. Meeting notices will be posted on MUMPO’s website and provided to mainstream and ethnic newspapers, radio, and television. If requested, a reading service for the blind will be enlisted to broadcast this information. D. Public Comments Public comments may be provided in the following ways: • Verbally at a public meeting (if applicable) • During the public participation opportunity of a regularly scheduled MUMPO meeting occurring within the review and comment period 175
•
•
•
•
In writing By fax With TTY (teletypewriter) and/or TDD (telecommunications device for the deaf) Through e‐mail. E. Time Period for Public Comments Public comments will be accepted no later than the close of business of the final day of the public review and comment period, unless otherwise specified. F. Format of Public Meetings Public meetings will provide for open discussions between MUMPO members and/or staff and the public. All meetings will be on the record. The format of public meetings will generally be as follows: • Presentation by MUMPO staff and/or their consultant(s); • Question and answer period, and discussion period; • Summary and wrap up by MUMPO staff and/or their consultant staff and information about the next steps, if applicable; • MUMPO will accept written comments following public meetings; and, • MUMPO will occasionally survey meeting attendees to gauge effectiveness of the public involvement process. Public meetings with an “open house” or “drop‐in” format will not include a formal presentation. G. MUMPO Board Meeting Agenda Items Items on the MUMPO Board Meeting agenda that require action by the board will be placed on the agenda prior to informational items. It will be at the discretion of the Chair to alter the order of agenda items in order to accommodate special circumstances. IV.
Implementation Guidelines A. The Long Range Transportation Plan MUMPO’s implementation guidelines are an integral part of all of MUMPO’s transportation efforts. They will be reviewed systematically and their effectiveness evaluated on an annual basis. The Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) defines the policies, programs and projects to be implemented during the next twenty years in order to provide mobility choices to residents and visitors in MUMPO’s planning area. The LRTP contains recommendations for 176
the following types of surface transportation: streets and roads; transit routes and guideways and bicycle and pedestrian facilities. The LRTP also contains descriptions and assessments of conditions or factors affecting the surface transportation of persons and/or movement of freight within MUMPO’s planning area. Public Involvement Opportunities ‐ The development of the LRTP will be accomplished in the following way: • An Open House will be held to kick off the LRTP development and will serve as an opportunity for the public to provide input on its vision, goals and objectives. • MUMPO will make presentations at community meetings on the LRTP and the upcoming opportunity to weigh in on the results of prioritization. • The public will review the results of project prioritization and provide comments. The results will be presented to the public through mail, e‐mail, fax, telephone, and MUMPO’s website. • The public will review the preferred list of projects selected by MUMPO after considering the impact of funding different combinations of projects. The preferred alternative will be reviewed to see how it meets the goals of the LRTP, to determine what beneficial and adverse impacts the projects will have on minority and low‐
income populations, and to ensure that these projects do not conflict with air quality goals. MUMPO will hold another series of public meetings to present these findings. • After all factors have been considered, the final draft list of selected projects will be made available for public review and comment. The document will be available on MUMPO’s website, at libraries, government buildings and MUMPO’s offices. In addition, an executive summary will be available on MUMPO’s website in Spanish. A public meeting will be held during the public comment period. Public comments are reviewed and the final list of projects will be selected. • The complete final draft of the LRTP will be available for public review and comment for a 30‐day period. At least one public meeting will be held during the 30‐day period. Consideration should be given to the following points when holding presentations: • MUMPO presentations will be incorporated into part of an organization’s regularly scheduled meeting where possible; • These organizations will include a presentation on the LRTP as an item on their agenda; • The organizations that host these meetings will be responsible for providing a space large enough to accommodate the expected audience. These organizations and MUMPO will be responsible for publicizing these events; • All oral and visual presentations on the LRTP at these meetings will be done in clear, simple language with as few acronyms as possible. Presenters will provide basic introductory information on the topics being presented. If requested, an interpreter and/or signer will be provided; and, 177
•
B. MUMPO will create clear and easy‐to‐read information throughout the process and will be distributed through MUMPO presentations at organizations, in newsletter inserts of these organizations, on MUMPO’s website and by mail. Amendments to the Long Range Transportation Plan Amendments to the LRTP can occur when funding sources change, priorities change, project scope and termini changes and purpose and need changes, etc. Public Involvement Opportunities ‐ Opportunities to comment on proposed amendments to the LRTP will be publicized by sending out a notice of the proposed amendments to the public. At the same time, a 30‐day comment period will be announced. At least one public meeting will be held during the 30‐day period. C. The Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Program The Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Program (MTIP) is a, short‐range plan of transportation improvements based on the LRTP listing the region’s anticipated transportation investments over a seven‐year period. The MTIP is updated every two years. Public Involvement Opportunities ‐ Opportunities will be available to comment on the proposed Transportation Improvement Program. Notice will be given that the project descriptions from the first draft will be available online for review for a 30‐day period prior to the release of the entire document. Comments can be submitted during this time period by e‐mail or regular mail. A public meeting on the first draft Transportation Improvement Program will take place at the end of this comment period. Notice will be given that the final draft MTIP will be available in hard copy at various libraries, local government planning offices, MUMPO’s office and online for a 30‐day period. Comments can be submitted during this time period by e‐mail or regular mail. A public meeting on the MTIP will take place during the comment period. D. Air Quality Conformity Determinations Federal regulations require that MUMPO demonstrate that its LRTP and TIP conform to air quality standards. When a conformity determination is required, a 30‐day public comment period will be conducted, with at least one public meeting held during that time period. When possible, the required public involvement for the conformity determination will be held in conjunction with public outreach efforts associated with the LRTP and TIP. E. The Unified Planning Work Program The Unified Planning Work Program is adopted annually by MUMPO and identifies the major transportation planning activities to be undertaken for the coming year. An important element of the Unified Planning Work Program is the continual update and 178
maintenance of land use, demographic and travel data needed to apply the computer model, which projects travel demands based on the population and employment projections and the transportation facilities and services. Public Involvement Opportunities ‐ The proposed Unified Planning Work Program and an opportunity to comment will be made available to the public. Copies may be requested by telephone, fax, mail and e‐mail, and in person. F. Comprehensive Transportation (Thoroughfare) Plan Additions or changes to the Thoroughfare Plan can significantly impact citizens and neighborhoods. This policy is intended to establish guidelines for citizen involvement in the thoroughfare planning process that will inform citizens and allow their comments to be appropriately considered. The types of public notification listed below are not intended to be interpreted as rigid rules that cannot be modified. Because each change to the Thoroughfare Plan involves a unique set of circumstances, staff will work with the affected municipality(s) to develop a public involvement plan suitable for each project. Special attention will be made to determine if a proposed change will have a disproportionate impact on low‐income and minority populations as noted in Executive Order 12898 (see Chapter I, Section B). 1. Level 1 The impact of this type of change to the Thoroughfare Plan to citizens, property owners and business owners is minor, thus the degree of public involvement is limited Typical Changes a. Deletion of a proposed thoroughfare from the plan b. Downgrade in thoroughfare classification (e.g.. major thoroughfare to minor thoroughfare) c. Revision of an alignment to reflect the dedication/reservation of right‐of‐way through the development process Public Notification Media notification Media outlets will be notified that a change has been proposed, and that the TCC and MPO are scheduled to act on the change at specific dates and times. Land development organizations notification Agencies responsible for land development decisions will be notified. This will include the municipal or county clerk as well as those responsible for planning and zoning in the affected community. The dates and times of scheduled TCC and MPO action will be included on the notification. 179
Property owner notification Affected property owners will be notified of the proposed action. Notification may be limited to those properties with direct access to the affected roadway. The dates and times of scheduled TCC and MPO action will be included on the notification. 2. Level 2 The impact of this type of change to the Thoroughfare Plan affects few citizens. Typical Changes a. Revision of an alignment to reflect the dedication/reservation of right‐of‐way through the development process b. Changes affecting only a few citizens Public Notification Staff will consult with the affected municipality(s) to determine if the change requires a formal public meeting. If it is determined that a formal public meeting is not required, public outreach will consist of a meeting(s) with the affected citizens. The following additional steps will also be taken: Media notification Media outlets will be notified that a change has been proposed, and that the TCC and MPO are scheduled to act on the change at specific dates and times. Land development organizations notification Agencies responsible for land development decisions will be notified. This will include the municipal or county clerk as well as those responsible for planning and zoning in the affected community. The dates and times of scheduled TCC and MPO action will be included on the notification. If it is determined that a public meeting is required, notification and format will be similar to that which is noted below for a Level 3 meeting. 3. Level 3 This type of change will impact a significant number of citizens and will require at least one public meeting. Typical Changes a. Addition of a new thoroughfare alignment to the approved plan b. Revision of a proposed alignment c. Addition or deletion of an interchange to an expressway/freeway Public Notification Media notification Media outlets will be notified of the location, date and time of the public meeting. 180
Property owner notification A study area boundary will be established in consultation with the affected municipality(s). All property owners within the study area boundary will receive a postcard or letter notifying them of the date, time and location of the public meeting. To the greatest degree feasible, the notification will contain details about the proposed action. At a minimum, the notification will contain a link to MUMPO’s website as well as a telephone number and e‐
mail address where additional information can be obtained. Invitations may also be sent to neighborhood associations, known local leaders and other citizens and stakeholders who may have an interest in the alignment. Waiver of Public Notification Requirements If a project sponsored by another agency is proposed for inclusion on the Thoroughfare Plan, and has been the subject of a public involvement effort, the public notification requirements may be waived if the MPO determines that: a. the public involvement process was adequate and met the intent of the PIP; and b. conditions in the affected area are substantially the same as when the local public involvement effort was conducted. Website In all cases of changes to the Thoroughfare Plan, MUMPO’s website will be updated to include information pertinent to the project. The information to be provided will include the following: a. A written description of what is being proposed, and why the proposal has been made. b. A map depicting the proposed change. If the change involves a shift to a proposed alignment, both the existing and proposed alignment will be shown. 4. Comprehensive Transportation Plan Adoption MUMPO is currently in the process of transitioning from its Thoroughfare Plan to a Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP). The transition will require the preparation of a distinct public outreach effort. G. Public Involvement Plan The public will be given an opportunity to comment on updates to the Public Involvement Plan. A public review and comment period will take place for 45 days. During that time, the draft Public Involvement Plan will be available online and by hard copy at various libraries, local government planning offices and MUMPO’s offices. H. Annual Performance and Evaluation Report on Public Involvement A report describing and evaluating public involvement efforts will be developed by MUMPO staff within three months after the end of each fiscal year. The report will be made 181
available to MUMPO board members and the Technical Coordinating Committee and will be posted on MUMPO’s website. V. SPECIAL ACCOMMODATIONS FOR PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 is landmark civil rights legislation ensuring equal opportunity for people with disabilities in employment, public accommodations, transportation, state and local government services and telecommunications. MUMPO and its subcommittees are fully committed to the spirit and intent of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. In order to facilitate participation by people with disabilities, the following guidelines and activities will apply: • All public meetings and MUMPO formal events will be held in facilities that are accessible to persons with disabilities; • All public notices of MUMPO meetings will state that accommodations for qualified individuals with disabilities will be provided upon request. One‐week notice is required for provisions of appropriate auxiliary aids and services; • All documents available to the public will be provided in alternative formats for qualified individuals with disabilities, upon request; • The website will be in compliance with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act Amendments of 1998. • The telephone number, e‐mail, mailing address, fax number, and website address will be included on all MUMPO publications; and, • A list of resources for auxiliary aids and services will be developed and maintained. 182

PUBLIC INVOLVEMENT IN THE PLANNING PROCESS
GASTON URBAN AREA
Study Area Profile and the Planning Process
Gaston County is within the Piedmont Crescent of North Carolina and is part of the CharlotteGastonia-Concord Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA). The county is rural in character but has
a large sprawling urban center that includes seventy-five percent of the persons living in the
county. One of the unique features of this urban area is the number of incorporated
municipalities. Including Gastonia, which is the largest, there are 11 governing boards in
addition to the Board of County Commissioners.
The United States Department of Transportation, through the Federal Highway Administration
(FHWA) requires:
"...each urbanized area, as a condition to the receipt of Federal capital or operating
assistance, have a continuing, cooperative and comprehensive transportation
planning process that results in plans and programs consistent with the
comprehensive planned development of the urbanized area"
These federal regulations require that a single agency responsible for the implementation of the
urban transportation planning process in each urban area. This agency is designated as the
Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the urban area. In the Gaston Urbanized Area
this function is filled by the Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) and is advised by the
Technical Coordinating Committee (TCC). The TAC members are elected officials appointed
by their board or council to serve as the town's representative. The TCC are members of the
individual City staffs that review the technical aspects of all transportation planning, including
roads, greenways, transit, and bicycle and pedestrian planning.
Among its various functions the TAC ensures that a continuing, cooperative and comprehensive
(3C) planning process exists in the urban area. The Federal Register states that: "The urban
transportation planning process shall include the development of a transportation plan consisting
of a transportation systems element for each mode out to twenty-five years. The transportation
plan shall be reviewed annually to confirm its validity and its consistency with current
transportation and land use conditions."
For the Gaston Urban Area, the North Carolina Department of Transportation has historically
conducted most of the technical work of the Thoroughfare Plan. However, the Gastonia
Engineering Department is performing a larger amount of technical work for the MPO. This
involves computer models which can take months to calibrate. These models are used to
evaluate the various alternatives proposed during the planning process. The local planners
provide demographic information and alternatives needed for the modeling. However, for the
2035 Long Range Transportation Plan revision, the Charlotte Department of Transportation
(CDOT) is handling the bulk of technical modeling work for the entire region. The decision to
have one agency, CDOT, perform this work is to better provide the uniform and consistent data
184
collection and output analysis necessary for regional compliance for the 8-Hour Conformity
Report for Ozone Non-Attainment as established by U.S. EPA.
The development of the Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Program is a two-way
process. The top-down process occurs when the NCDOT Division Twelve Engineer brings the
proposed changes of the MTIP for the MPO to review. After additional comments from the
MPO, the recommended plan continues to the final and formal public meetings. The bottom-up
process occurs when the MPO requests changes to a project. Once the division engineer reviews
the changes and/or adds comments, the recommended plan continues to the final and formal
public meetings.
There is no known federal law or regulation stipulating how the general public should be
involved. There is also no known state or local policy guiding public input or hearings except
the Open Meetings Law. This law requires 48 hour public notice if there is going to be a public
meeting. The Transportation Planning Branch of NCDOT strongly encourages local hearings
before the adoption of the Thoroughfare Plan, but has no regulation requiring such a hearing.
Since the TAC is a Board of Elected Officials making public policy, it follows that public input
is appropriate. Lacking regulations or laws to guide staff, there appears to be great latitude for
the local area to develop a meaningful method for involving the citizenry.
Transportation Agency & Citizen Involvement
The best interest of the community as a whole should be the ultimate goal of transportation
planning. In a democracy, the citizens have a right to know what government is doing, especially
if it affects them directly. Planners may have the technical expertise to suggest possible corridors
for future roadways, or changes to any mode of the transportation system, but the citizens have
the right to comment and/or suggest improvements. However, all agencies or institutions, private
or public, as well as citizens have an obligation to make an informed decision on transportation
planning. The transportation system is an intricate and complicated network. In a perfect
transportation network, all modes of transportation would blend seamlessly to offer multiple
choices for the citizens to travel throughout their community and beyond.
The planner cannot properly plan without the active cooperation of the community. As trained
professionals, it is their responsibility to inform the public why they, as planners, are making a
particular recommendation. This educational process treats the citizen as an equal partner in the
development of the community. Grassroots support is critical if the plan is going to be a success.
When the plan goes before the policy boards it should have already gathered community support.
After all, the thoroughfare plan, Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Program, and Long
Range Transportation Plan are the community’s plans. The transportation planner acts as the
interpreter of data and provides this information to the public. The transportation planner also
engages the public in all phases of the planning process.
185
Orienting the Planning Process
At the beginning of the report, the federally mandated 3C planning process was described. The
TAC plays an important role in ensuring the involvement of the citizens in the planning process.
The federal government looks to these officials to ensure citizen involvement in the process. The
redirecting of the planning process must begin with this board. They are the community leaders
most involved with transportation planning. They must also be the guiding force in the
involvement of the citizens.
The task of educating the public is ongoing. It is the responsibility of the MPO and the local
planning staff to educate the community. General information concerning road projects,
demographic changes, new or proposed thoroughfares must be given to the community on a
routine basis so that it is not a surprise later. The local policy boards must involve the area
planners on a more frequent basis so a professional relationship is maintained.
Along with this general education a new review process for proposed thoroughfares should be
considered. A three-tiered process involving the MPO and the general public on three levels
should be created. The three tiers can be summarized as:
1. The area study group is made up of private and public transportation
providers, members of the municipal planning boards, and their TAC and
TCC representatives;
2. A series of walk-in public hearings centering around the area's six high
schools; and
3. Formal public hearings before each affected municipal planning board and
city council.
This aims to build grassroots support for the Thoroughfare Plan as it is developed. The first tier
would be the creation of study groups made up of planning board members from the area. The
groups would be made of about 12 individuals appointed by the TAC representatives for that
particular township. The study group would be made up of one or two representatives from each
of the existing Planning Commissions.
Careful development of the makeup of the committees is important to maintain a broad cross
section of the community. The TAC members would appoint board members with a good
knowledge of the area and an interest in the project at hand. Elected officials and the public
would be encouraged to participate with meetings advertised by newspaper and electronic media.
A monthly newsletter to each study group member would keep them informed of the activities of
the other study groups.
The study group would become the center point in reviewing and recommending Thoroughfare
Plan amendments. The study group members would remain on the study committee as long as
they are members of a planning board or at the pleasure of their respective policy boards.
However, TAC members should try to keep re-appointments to a minimum due to the large
amount of training involved and the need for continuity in the program. Meetings would be held
regularly and would be attended by the TCC and TAC from the area being reviewed. The staff
would take steps to educate these groups in the more complex areas of transportation planning.
186
Each study committee would appoint a chairperson who would speak for the group. The
chairpersons would make the recommendations to the MPO. Disputes between the various study
committees would be settled by the TAC. Minor changes to the thoroughfare plan could be
handled through the study group. This group would also make the decision whether additional
public hearings are necessary.
Public Hearing Process -Final Phases
After a consensus has been reached by the study groups, the chairperson of each group would
forward the recommendations to the TCC for review and comment. After the TCC review, each
study group would present their recommendations to the TAC. If approved at this level the next
phase of the hearing process would begin. This would consist of a series of walk-in public input
meetings where people could come and make informal comments. This would be chaired by the
study group for the township with staff present for technical assistance. Recommendations would
then go to the MPO for final approval.
The final phase of the process would be the formal public hearing process. This would be a series
of hearings held with each individual municipality following the procedure set down by that
particular city. At each hearing the study group members appointed by the municipality would
present the study assisted by staff. Individual changes would go back to the study group and the
MPO.
Minor Updates to the Long Range Transportation Plan (amended November 2001)
For updates to the Long Range Transportation Plan which do not include a change to the horizon
year or significant changes to thoroughfare cross-sections or alignments, the following
opportunities for public comment should be offered:
1. The revised input data will be made available to the public in the MPO offices
at Gastonia City Hall for a period no less than 30 days;
2. A website will be utilized to make input data available to the public;
3. At least one public hearing will be held.
Any comments received through this process will be addressed and incorporated as appropriate.
Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Plan Amendment and Modification Guidelines
(amended November 2012)
Changes may be made to the Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Program (MTIP) by
either formal amendment or administrative modification.
Formal Amendments are required when changes cause: addition or deletion of a project,
changes in project cost beyond a predetermined threshold, project phase initiation dates to move
into or out of the 4 year STIP time window, changes in funding sources involving non-traditional
funding sources (including GARVEE bonds), or major changes in design concept or scope; an
example of a “major” scope change might be - changing the project termini or number of through
travel lanes or significantly altering the proposed transit coverage area.
187
Examples of Amendments:
x Change in project cost beyond a predetermined threshold; increases in highway projects
that exceed both $ 2 million and 25% of the original cost and may affect fiscal constraint
and changes (increases or decreases) in transit projects that exceed either $1 million or
25% of the original project cost;
x
Any addition or deletion of a federally funded project to the first 4 years of the Program;
x
Addition or deletion of any regionally significant project into the first 4 years of the
Program;
x
Change in project design or scope1 that significantly changes; the termini or project type,
purpose, or number of through lanes on a non-exempt (for transportation purposes)
project;
x
Any addition, deletion or significant modification of non-traditional funding source to a
project (traditional sources of revenue include federal, state, or local government tax
revenues. Non-traditional sources include state bonding and/or private participation);
x
Project schedule shifts that move ROW, major capital acquisitions, or construction
authorization dates either into or out of the 4 year STIP time window;
x
Project schedule shifts in years 1 through 4 that move project completion dates across
Horizon Years as determined by the local Long Range Transportation plan;
x
Project schedule shifts to incorporate the project from an out-year into the current (fouryear) STIP.
Note: Amendments do require documentation of a 30 day public review and comment
opportunity, and a public meeting. Also, the amendment may require re-demonstration of fiscal
constraint and local transportation conformity determination. Fiscal constraint may be shown by
either the project cost impact being less than 5% of the expected annual budget or by showing
other cost reductions and/or revenue increases within the affected fiscal year(s). The project
change in a formal amendment and the transportation conformity results will be distributed to all
public libraries and local municipal governments within the Gaston Urban Area for a 30 day
public review. A public comment meeting will also be held in the Gaston Urban Area within the
30 day public comment period.
Note: on Program Date field in the FTA Transportation Electronic Award and Management
(TEAM) system applications – the transit grant applications asks for the STIP amendment
approval dates; however the correct entry in the TEAM application is the date FTA endorses the
1
Note alteration to earmarks described in the Congressional Report may jeopardize project eligibility for federal
(FTA) funding under the discretionary capital program (Section 5309).
188
BOT approved STIP amendment, e.g. the effective STIP approval date is the date FTA concurs
with the amendment to the STIP.
Administrative Modifications can be made to previously included projects when; change in
project costs are below the predetermined thresholds, movement of project phase initiation dates
are within the 4 year STIP time window, change to project scope or description do not
significantly diminish the ability to achieve the original project intent, and change in traditional
funding sources occur.
Administrative modification is a streamlining process recommended in the FHWA/FTA/NCDOT
Joint STIP Review of December 2011. Administrative Modifications do not require
documentation of public review or comment, redemonstration of fiscal constraint, or a local
transportation conformity determination.
Examples of Administrative Modifications:
x Any change to projects in years 5 or later;
x
Minor change to project descriptions, scopes, sponsor funding;
x
Minor cost increases in highway projects that do not exceed both $ 2 million and 25% of
the original project cost;
x
Minor cost change (increase or decrease) in transit projects that do not exceed either $1
million or 25% of the original project cost;
x
Schedule changes that move project authorization dates within the first 4 year STIP time
window and do not affect local air quality conformity findings;
x
Funding source changes between traditional funding sources (i.e. substituting available
Congestion Mitigation Air Quality (CMAQ) funds for FTA section 5307 formula transit
funds);
x
Projects approved for Emergency Relief funds do not generally have to be included in the
STIP, so any changes made for emergency projects may be considered minor
modifications.
State funded projects are amended when the fiscal year changes or when there is a significant
change in the project description. Unless the project is determined to be regionally significant for
transportation conformity purposes, these amendments are approved solely by the State Board of
Transportation. Local approval of these changes is desired but not legally required. MPO’s may
treat these as Administrative modifications if they wish. If a change to a state funded project that
is regionally significant, this requires a new transportation conformity determination, this
determination must be made before the amendment can be processed. The state public
notification process will be the same for state funded projects as it is for federal-aid projects.
189
PUBLIC INVOLVEMENT PROCEDURES:
The NCDOT will make all proposed STIP amendments available to the public for comment on
its website at least 25 days prior to adoption action by the Board of Transportation. Exception
may be made for response to declared disasters.
The NCDOT will make all proposed STIP amendments available to staff of MPOs and RPOs for
comment at least 25 days prior to adoption action by the Board of Transportation. Exception may
be made for response to declared disasters.
All amendments to the transit portion of the STIP will be submitted to FTA Region IV for formal
endorsement. The request letter for FTA endorsement of STIP amendments will include
assurances that public involvement processes were followed, in accordance with the federally
approved state or local Participation Plans. Administrative modifications to the transit portion of
the STIP will be posted on the Public Transportation Division website for informational purposes
within 5 days of the changes being processed at NCDOT.
Established public involvement procedures at the local level shall be followed. Any significant
negative reaction will result in either the Board being notified of the reaction prior to voting, or
withdrawal of the proposal for further review.
Attachment 1
Federal Definitions according to 23 CFR 450.104
Administrative modification means a minor revision to a long-range statewide or metropolitan
transportation plan, Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), or Statewide Transportation
Improvement Program (STIP) that includes minor changes to project/project phase costs, minor
changes to funding sources of previously-included projects, and minor changes to project/project
phase initiation dates. An administrative modification is a revision that does not require public
review and comment, redemonstration of fiscal constraint, or a conformity determination (in
nonattainment and maintenance areas).
Amendment means a revision to a long-range statewide or metropolitan transportation plan, TIP,
or STIP that involves a major change to a project included in a metropolitan transportation plan,
TIP, or STIP, including the addition or deletion of a project or a major change in project cost,
project/project phase initiation dates, or a major change in design concept or design scope (e.g.,
changing project termini or the number of through traffic lanes). Change to projects that are
included only for illustrative purposes do not require an amendment. An amendment is a revision
that requires public review and comment, redemonstration of fiscal constraint, or a conformity
determination (for metropolitan transportation plans and TIPs involving “non-exempt” projects
in nonattainment and maintenance areas). In the context of a long-range statewide transportation
plan, an amendment is a revision approved by the State in accordance with its public
involvement process.
190
Summary
The ultimate goal of transportation planning is to promote the best interest of the people.
Planning, to be effective, must involve people early in the process. The proposed method of
involving more citizens in the decision making process is three-tiered. Early involvement in each
municipality at a study group level would be established through the existing planning boards.
Responsibility for the presentation and promotion of recommendations would shift from the staff
to the study group, though there would be, by necessity, active participation by the staff. This
proposal would allow active participation at a local level while educating the study group in the
process. Grassroots support could be developed early in the process with meetings involving the
public as the alternatives are being considered.
The advantages of using the existing planning board members are several, the principal one
being that there is less lead time in educating the study groups since they will already be familiar
with the planning issues in their community. The disadvantage to this process is the increased
staff time needed to work with the study groups and the slow down of the process because of the
increased citizen involvement. However, if we are to take the active participation of the public
seriously these problems are unavoidable. Furthermore, since there were often delays in projects
because of lack of public consultation early-on, the difference in the amount of time should be
negligible.
Overall the new public involvement policy would have the support of both the staff and the
community. By effectively using the process, citizens would have frequent, full use of the
process with a minimum amount of delays in projects.

Cabarrus-Rowan MPO Public Participation Policy
192
Introduction
The Cabarrus-Rowan Metropolitan Planning Organization’s (CRMPO’s) Public Involvement
Policy is an umbrella policy, encompassing the plans and programs of the Urban Area’s
transportation planning process. Public involvement is an integral part of the CRMPO’s
planning efforts and is intended to offer opportunities for the general public and particularly,
historically disadvantaged populations to provide meaningful input into the transportation
planning and decision-making process. The Public Involvement Policy is comprised of the
public involvement programs for all the major planning activities, including the Transportation
Plan, Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Program (MTIP), Major Investment Studies
(MIS), and the Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP). The CRMPO will seek public input
through a menu of techniques, including but not limited to, public notices, comment periods,
workshops, charrettes, public hearings, newsletters, surveys, and media relations. The
techniques employed will vary, depending on the specific planning task. The MPO will hold a
forty-five (45) day public comment period for amendments to the Policy. The CRMPO’s Public
Involvement Policy will be consistent with the requirements of the Moving Ahead for Progress
in the 21st Century (MAP-21), the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the
FTA/FHWA Guidance on Public Participation.
Purpose
The purpose of the CRMPO Public Involvement Policy is to create an open decision making
process whereby citizens have the opportunity to be involved in all stages of the transportation
planning process. This Policy is designed to ensure that transportation decisions will reflect
public priorities.
Objectives
1.
Bring a broad cross-section of the public into the public policy and transportation
planning decision-making process.
2.
Maintain public involvement from the early stages of the planning process through
detailed project development.
3.
Use different combinations of public involvement techniques to meet the diverse needs of
the general public.
4.
Determine the public's knowledge of the metropolitan transportation system
and the public’s values and attitudes concerning transportation.
5.
Make technical and other information available to the public.
6.
Establish a channel for an effective feedback process.
7.
Evaluate the public involvement process and procedures to assess their success at
meeting requirements specified in the MAP-21, NEPA and the FTA/FHWA Guidance on
Public Participation.
193
Policy Elements
The CRMPO’s Public Involvement Policy is comprised of a number of sub-policies. All
planning programs and activities are required to go through the Transportation Advisory
Committee’s public process. In addition, the MPO has initiated public involvement programs for
the Long Range Transportation Plan, the Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Program
(MTIP), the Major Investment Study (MIS), the Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP), and
the annual lists of Federal Project Authorizations.
Transportation Committees
Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) - The Transportation Advisory Committee is the
policy and decision-making body for the Cabarrus-Rowan Metropolitan Planning Organization.
The TAC is comprised of elected and appointed officials from the City of Concord, the City of
Kannapolis, City of Salisbury, the Town of Landis, the Town of China Grove, the Town of
Harrisburg, the Town of Spencer, the Town of Granite Quarry, the Town of Rockwell, the Town
of Mount Pleasant, the Town of Cleveland, Cabarrus County, Rowan County, Town of Midland,
Town of Faith, Town of East Spencer, and the North Carolina Department of Transportation.
The TAC is responsible for providing opportunities for citizen participation in the transportation
planning process.
Technical Coordinating Committee (TCC) – The Technical Coordinating Committee is the
technical advisory body for the Cabarrus-Rowan Metropolitan Planning Organization. The TCC
is comprised of professional planning and engineering staff from the City of Concord, the City of
Kannapolis, City of Salisbury, the Town of Landis, the Town of China Grove, the Town of
Harrisburg, the Town of Spencer, the Town of Granite Quarry, the Town of Rockwell, the Town
of Mount Pleasant, the Town of Cleveland, Cabarrus County, Rowan County, Town of Midland,
Town of Faith, Town of East Spencer, and the North Carolina Department of Transportation.
The TCC is also responsible for providing opportunities for citizen participation in the
transportation planning process.
Regular Public Involvement Opportunities
The TCC holds regular monthly meetings on the 3rd Wednesday of every month and the TAC
holds regular monthly meetings on the 4th Wednesday of every month except the months of
December and July. All of these meetings are open to members of the public and media. The
local news media will receive notification of all TCC and TAC meetings. At the beginning of
each regular meeting, the TCC and TAC provide time to receive public comments.
Public Involvement for Specific Planning Items
For particular planning issues (i.e. plan development & updates, studies, amendments to
planning documents, etc.), the TAC will open a public comment period (3-6 weeks depending on
the item) and may hold a public hearing. The notice for the public comment period and the
public hearing are advertised in the Salisbury Post, Neighbors of the North, Independent
Tribune, CR MPO website, as well as any available local cable access channel. The notices will
194
include an announcement that states that persons with disabilities will be accommodated.
Special provisions will be made if notified 48 hours in advance (i.e. having available large print
documents, audio material, someone proficient in sign language, a translator or other provisions
as requested). Both written and oral comments received are compiled by the planning staff and
reviewed by the TCC and TAC.
Specific Requirements
The Cabarrus-Rowan MPO’s Public Involvement Policy is designed to be consistent with the
requirements of MAP-21, NEPA and the FTA/FHWA Guidance of Public Participation.
Response to Public Comment
The TCC and TAC acknowledge public comments in two ways. The TCC and TAC may
incorporate public comments and the MPO’s response into the specific planning document as an
appendix. Depending on the number of comments, the TCC and TAC may instruct the planning
staff to respond directly by letter, with a copy included in the appendix. Acknowledging public
comments is a way to let the public know that its comments are being addressed and is part of
the public involvement feedback process.
Periodic Review and Evaluation of the Public Involvement Policy
An important step in public involvement is evaluating the effectiveness of the policy and
outreach activities in order to ensure a full and open involvement process. The CRMPO shall
periodically review the overall effectiveness of the public involvement process in order to ensure
that the process is providing meaningful citizen input. The public involvement policy is a work
in progress and strives to improve CR MPO’s efforts toward increasing public awareness and
involvement in transportation planning. The CR MPO initially used a Public Involvement
Survey, which was distributed in the fall of 2007, to gauge the public’s satisfaction with the
public involvement process. Results of the initial survey were used in this update to the Public
Involvement Policy. (The Public Involvement Survey and results are included as an Appendix to
this Plan.) This survey will be an ongoing tool for measuring how the MPO addresses and
involves the public in making decisions about transportation plans and projects. The CR MPO
public involvement policy will be evaluated on a short and long term basis.
Short Term
At every event, participants will be asked to evaluate the public involvement activity or
opportunity. MPO staff will ask how the public found out about this opportunity and solicit
feedback on the effectiveness of it or any suggestions for improvement. The MPO will develop
public involvement objectives or strategies for evaluating the improvement of the public
involvement policy.
Long Term
The Public Involvement Policy must be reviewed at least every 4 years.
Both short and long term evaluations ensure that the appropriate revisions to the MPO’s public
involvement approach are being recognized and addressed by the CR MPO. Following these
195
evaluations, it is possible that some public involvement activities will be refined, revisited, or
discontinued. It is the philosophy of the CR MPO to strengthen the relationship with the public
through these periodic evaluations.
1. Long Range Transportation Plan
Introduction
The multi-modal Long Range Transportation Plan public review and participation process is
designed to provide early and adequate opportunities for citizens and public officials (including
elected officials) to be involved in the Cabarrus-Rowan (CR) Long Range Transportation Plan
development. This public participation program is designed to involve all parties in the early
stages of plan development and the subsequent update process. It is also designed to provide
gradual progression from the general information (vision setting and formulation of goals,
objectives and policies) pertaining to the plan to very specific information regarding alternatives
and plan selection.
Elements of the Public Involvement Procedure
The Public Involvement Process for the Long Range Transportation Plan consists of a series of
innovative public participation techniques, including: public service announcements, public
meetings, surveys, and the mass media. These techniques will be employed at various stages of
the plan development.
Public Involvement Process
1.
The Cabarrus-Rowan (CR) Metropolitan Planning Organization will provide opportunity
for early and meaningful public involvement in the development and update of the Long
Range Transportation Plan.
2.
Proactive participation techniques will be employed to involve citizens and provide full
access to information and technical data. The technique will generally include, but not be
limited to: public meetings/hearings, surveys, charrettes, mass media, etc. Visualization
techniques shall be utilized to enhance the public’s understanding of MPO plans and
programs. The techniques will be utilized in an appropriate manner when presenting and
describing MPO plans and programs.
3.
Information dissemination, notification of meeting, publication of proposed plans will be
integral elements of the public involvement process.
4.
The MPO will initiate the Long Range Transportation Plan update process as required by
the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) , the Clean Air Act
Amendments (CAAA) and subsequent federal regulations.
Elements of the
Transportation Plan, and/or amendments will meet all current Federal Highway
Administration (FHWA), Federal Transit Administration (FTA), Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA), and the North Carolina Department of Transportation
(NCDOT) requirements.
196
5.
The public comment period for all elements of the Long Range Transportation Plan will
be for a minimum 30 day public comment period, effective from the date of the public
notice publication. Written comments will be received during the comment period and
will be directed to the MPO. The contact person, phone number and e-mail address will
be included in the public notice.
6.
Public meeting(s) will be held to: formulate a vision for the Long Range Transportation
Plan development; provide the public background information on the metropolitan
transportation system and other issues as well as the proposed framework of the
Transportation Plan update process; and to receive citizen input.
7.
All public meetings (forums) designed to solicit public comment will be held at various
locations and times of day around the metropolitan area to encourage the greatest public
participation. Public meetings will be held at a location which is accessible to persons
with disabilities. Outreach activities will be conducted to inform minority and lowincome groups and limited English-speaking groups of the opportunity for public
comment. At least one-quarter of these meeting shall be held in minority and/or low
income areas and within ¼ mile walk of a transit route in an easily accessible area.
8.
The Cabarrus-Rowan MPO will maintain a website which shall include information on
the Long Range Transportation Plan, meetings, other programs and appropriate
information. The MPO staff shall post on the CR MPO website draft documents that are
subject to the MPO’s public review process for review and comment. Staff will also use
the website to distribute information to the MPO membership.
9.
The MPO shall assess the distribution of impacts on low-income and minority groups for
investments identified in the Long Range Transportation Plan and publicize these
findings on the MPO website.
10.
The TCC will assemble all comments and forward comments to the Transportation
Advisory Committee (TAC). The TAC may choose to hold a public hearing before
adopting the Long Range Transportation Plan.
11.
Any significant revision and amendment to the Long Range Transportation Plan will be
subject to the public review process as outlined above.
12.
The public participation component of the Long Range Transportation Plan will
generally follow the same citizen input and review as outlined in this policy. Public input
will be solicited to review and comment on any major Long Range Transportation Plan
amendment proposal as well as analyses conducted as part of the amendment request.
Adequate opportunity will be provided for public involvement in the amendment of the
Long Range Transportation Plan, and any significant revisions to the Long Range
Transportation Plan will also be subject to public comment period as described in # 5 of
this policy.
197
13.
The CRMPO will endeavor to involve the public at key decision points of the Long
Range Transportation Plan development. Decision points are those stages where the
TAC will be required to endorse or take action on particular work elements. These
include, but are not limited to:
•
Formulation of vision, goals and objectives
•
Policy development
•
Review and approval of socio-economic and demographic projections
•

2. Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Program and
Rider Transit System’s Program of Projects
Overview
The Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Program (MTIP) is the document that describes
the funding and scheduling of transportation improvement projects (highway, bicycle,
pedestrian, and transit capital and operating assistance) using Federal, State, local and publicprivate funds. The MTIP serves as the project selection document for transportation projects
and, therefore, is the implementation mechanism by which the objectives of the Transportation
Plan are reached. The Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) mandates an
opportunity for public review of the MTIP. The City of Concord relies on this public
involvement policy by the MPO to satisfy their public participation requirements for the Rider
Transit System’s Program of Projects (POP). The following is the proposed public involvement
procedure for the Cabarrus-Rowan Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Program.
Introduction
198
The Cabarrus-Rowan (CR) Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) will prepare a
Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Program, which is consistent with the requirements of
the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) , and any implementing federal
regulations. The MTIP will be developed based on 1) revenue estimates provided by the North
Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) and 2) the CR Regional Priority List. The
public input element of the Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Program is presented as
follows:
Public Involvement Process
1. The CR Technical Coordinating Committee (TCC) will develop a draft Regional
Multi-Modal Priority List from the Local Project Priorities of the MPO jurisdictions.
2. The Regional Priority List will be published for a minimum four week (28-day)
public comment period and the notice will be published by the Metropolitan Planning
Organization (MPO) in:
Independent Tribune
Salisbury Post
Neighbors of the North
The notices for the public comment period will include an announcement that states that
persons with disabilities will be accommodated. The Regional Priority List will be on
file in the Cabarrus-Rowan MPO office, Cabarrus County Planning Department, Rowan
County Planning Department, CR MPO website, and any participating municipal and
county websites.
3. The Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) will solicit public comment from
interested parties on the draft Regional Priority List. The TAC will approve a final
Regional Priority List after considering the public comments received.
4. The CRMPO Technical Coordinating Committee will develop a draft MTIP from the
approved Regional Priority List and from revenue estimates provided by the North
Carolina Department of Transportation. The TCC will forward the draft MTIP to the
Transportation Advisory Committee. The Transportation Advisory Committee will
publish the draft MTIP for public review and comment.
5. Copies of a draft MTIP will be distributed to TAC members and via the CRMPO
website. Each jurisdiction will also have copies, available for public review. The
draft MTIP will follow the same notification procedures as outlined above for the
Regional Priority List. The TAC will solicit public comment from interested parties
on the draft MTIP. Public comments will be addressed and considered in the
adoption of the MTIP.
199
6. The public comments will be assembled and presented to the Cabarrus-Rowan TAC.
7. Amendments to MTIP will be available for public review and comment, if they make
a major or substantial change to the MTIP. The NCDOT has identified a delineation
between STIP Amendments and Modifications and issued guidelines to address each
category (see Appendix C). The Cabarrus-Rowan MPO wishes to incorporate the
language from these guidelines into their own MTIP amendment procedures. A major
change in the MTIP is considered the addition or deletion of a project that is
regionally significant and in the first 4 years of the TIP or can affect fiscal constraint
in the STIP or LRTP. Additional public comment on project additions or deletions
that do not meet any of these 3 criteria may be sought at the discretion of the TAC by
majority vote. Administrative modification is a streamlining process recommended
in a recent FHWA/FTA/NCDOT Joint STIP Review and do not require
documentation of public review or comment, redomonstration of fiscal constraint, or
a
transportation
conformity
determination.
8. Written public comments and their responses will be published as an appendix to the
final MTIP.
3. Major Investment Study
Introduction
The major investment study (MIS) is a planning tool mandated by the Moving Ahead for
Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21). It supports decisions on significant federally funded
transportation investments along a corridor or sub area level of the metropolitan area. The MIS
identifies all reasonable strategies for the study area in order to meet its transportation demands
and relieve any transportation problems. It is a detailed analysis designed to provide local
decision-makers with more comprehensive corridor level technical analysis early in the
transportation planning process.
Public Involvement Process
The scope of a major investment study for the Cabarrus-Rowan will be determined on a projectby-project basis. Therefore, the MPO will choose the appropriate public involvement initiatives
to meet the goals of the MIS. The public involvement techniques that may be used are public
informational meetings, newsletters, and media relations.
4. Unified Planning Work Program
Introduction
The Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) requires that each Metropolitan
Planning Organization (MPO) prepare an annual work program known as the Unified Planning
200
Work Program (UPWP). The UPWP must identify the MPO planning tasks to be undertaken
with the use of federal transportation funds, including highway and transit.
Public Involvement Process
1. The draft Unified Planning Work Program is reviewed by the Technical Coordinating
Committee (TCC). The TCC meetings are open to the public. The TCC then
endorses a draft UPWP and forwards the document to the TAC.
2. The draft UPWP is then reviewed by the TAC. Public comments may be provided at
this time. The draft is sent to the Public Transportation Division for comments.
3. The final UPWP comes back again to the TAC for approval. Upon TAC approval,
the UPWP is then forwarded on to the State and FHWA/FTA.
5. Annual List of Federal Project Authorizations
Public Involvement Process
The NCDOT provides the CR MPO with an annual list of Federal Project Authorizations. This
list of authorizations is made available to the public for their review and comment on the MPO
website and at the MPO office located at 135 Cabarrus Avenue East, Concord, NC 28025. The
public may view this list anytime as it remains in the public domain continuously.

2008 Ozone Standard Conformity Determination
In 2012 the National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) for 8-hour ozone was revised to reflect
improved scientific understanding of the health impacts of this pollutant. This is known as the 2008
8-hour ozone NAAQS. Effective July 20, 2012, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) declared
the Charlotte area as being “marginal nonattainment” for the 2008 8-hour NAAQS. Federal
regulations require the Lake Norman Rural Planning Organization to demonstrate that the area
2012-2018 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and related Mecklenburg-Union
Metropolitan Planning Organization 2035 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) conform to the
new standard. There are no TIP or LRTP amendments associated with this conformity
determination.
A copy of the draft Conformity Determination Report is available for review in the offices of the
Lake Norman RPO, located on the 12th floor of 525 N. Tryon St., Charlotte, NC 28202.
For more information, visit www.lakenormanrpo.org.
A 30-day public comment period will begin on Wednesday, March 13, 2013 and end on April 11,
2013.
A public meeting will be held on: Monday, March 25, 2013 5:00-7:00 PM at the Merchant Room

LEGAL NOTICES
2008 Ozone Standard Conformity Determination
In 2012 the National Ambient Air Quality Standard
(NAAQS) for 8-hour ozone was revised to reflect
improved scientific understanding of the health
impacts of this pollutant. This is known as the 2008
8-hour ozone NAAQS. Effective July 20, 2012, the
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) declared
the
Charlotte
area
as
being
"marginal
nonattainment" for the 2008 8-hour NAAQS. Federal regulations require the Lake Norman Rural
Planning Organization to demonstrate that the
area 2012-2018 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and related Mecklenburg-Union Metropolitan Planning Organization 2035 Long Range
Transportation Plan (LRTP) conform to the new
standard. There are no TIP or LRTP amendments
associated with this conformity determination.
A copy of the draft Conformity Determination Report is available for review in the offices of the
Lake Norman RPO, located on the 12th floor of 525
N. Tryon St., Charlotte, NC 28202.
For more information, visit
www.lakenormanrpo.org.
A 30-day public comment period will begin on
Wednesday, March 13, 2013 and end on April 11,
2013.
A public meeting will be held on: Monday, March
25, 2013 5:00-7:00 PM at the Merchant Room at the

RE: 2008 Ozone Standard Metrolina CDR Agency Comments
Eddie and Heather Thank you and your organizations for your review and comments. We have incorporated your comments into a revised draft, with one exception. Regarding DAQ’s comment on the RFP budgets: we verify that the Federal Register set the NOx budget at 7647 kg/day, instead of 7645 kg/day. The revised draft will be sent to everyone copied on this email. Eldewins Haynes, AQ Specialist

Subject: 2008 Ozone Standard Metrolina CDR Agency Comments
Eldewins, I reviewed the CDR and have 2 comments:  Page 3, Table of Contents, Appendix A, add “RFP SIP Federal Register Notice” to the information already provided  Page 10, Table 2, VOC emissions for 2025 and 2035 do not look to be correct. Based on the information in Appendix E: 2025 and 2035 should be 14172 and 15769, respectively. I think that MUMPO will need to extend their public review period after the correction is made since the error was for Mecklenburg County. Give me a call and we can discuss. 1

EPA Comments
Charlotte 2008 8-Hour Conformity Determination Report
March 15, 2013
1) Pg. 5 – Introduction – Spell out or keep numeric for 8-hour standard…”2008 8-hour ozone” or
“2008 eight hour ozone” standard
Response: We have revised the text to keep numeric.
2) Pg. 5 – When referring to the LRTPs and TIPs adoption should read ….Gaston MPO not Gastonia
MPO
Response: We have changed the reference to read Gaston Urban Area MPO .
3) Pg. 9 – Second paragraph – May read better if you say “This conformity determination will cover
the 2008 eight hour ozone standard which became effective on July 20, 2012. Transportation
conformity must be demonstrated by July 20, 2013. This conformity determination is scheduled
to be completed in May 2013”
Response: We have incorporated the suggested revision.
4) Pg. 11 – Last paragraph below Table 8 – delete “both the” should read for the 2008 eight hour
ozone standard” and change “FRP” to RFP in the next sentence.
Response: We have incorporated the suggested revision.

DAQ Comments on the Metrolina 2008 Ozone Standard Conformity Determination
February 22, 2013
Page 9, paragraph prior to the second set of bullets: This paragraph is awkward and hard to understand.
I would consider revising:
To demonstrate conformity to the 2008 ozone standard, the motor vehicle emission budgets
contained in the Metrolina RFP SIP (deemed adequate March 8, 20120) will be used for
Mecklenburg, Union (part), Cabarrus (part), Rowan (part), Gaston (part), Lincoln (part) and
Iredell (part) as detailed below:
Response: We have incorporated the suggested revision.
Page 11, Gaston County Emission Comparison Summary: Please verify the FRP budgets. According to
the Federal Register, the NOx budget should be 7645 kg/day while the VOC budget is 5132 kg/day. I am
not sure where the numbers included are from, but using them, you would not show conformity to the
budgets.
Response: The RFP budgets for Gaston County have been corrected. We verify that the Federal Register
set the NOx budget at7647 kg/day, and the VOC budget is as stated in the comment.
