Air Quality Conformity Demonstrations

When COMPASS develops or updates the regional long-range transportation plan (Communities in Motion) or the Regional Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), it is required to demonstrate that the transportation projects funded via these plans will not degrade air quality in the Treasure Valley. This is referred to as an “air quality conformity demonstration.” Learn more.

The documents demonstrating conformity for Communities in Motion and recent TIPs are below. Find older conformity demonstration documents in the archives.

COMPASS seeks public comment on the DRAFT Air Quality Conformity Demonstration for Communities in Motion 2040 and the DRAFT FY2018–2022 Regional Transportation Improvement Program (TIP): July 17 – August 15, 2017.

COMPASS is accepting comments on the DRAFT air quality conformity demonstration for Northern Ada County for Communities in Motion 2040 and projects in the DRAFT FY2018–2022 TIP. This demonstration is required in areas, such as Northern Ada County, where air quality did not meet federal standards in the past. The demonstration must show that projects listed in Communities in Motion 2040 and the TIP comply with state air quality plans. Federal approval of the air quality conformity demonstrationis necessary to obtain final approval of amendments to Communities in Motion 2040 and the TIP for Northern Ada County.

The air quality conformity demonstration report describes the estimated air quality impacts associated with Communities in Motion 2040 and the DRAFT FY2018-2022 TIP. It also contains an emissions budget test for the purposes of demonstrating air quality conformity as per federal requirements. The estimated impacts demonstrate that the projects contained in Communities in Motion 2040 and the DRAFT FY2018-2022 TIP meet air quality conformity requirements for Northern Ada County and will not degrade air quality.
