Public Notice on a Proposed Amendment to the FY 2020-2024 MAG Transportation Improvement Program, 2040 MAG Regional Transportation Plan Update, and Conformity Analysis

The Maricopa Association of Governments is notifying the public of a proposed amendment to the FY 2020-2024 MAG Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and 2040 MAG Regional Transportation Plan Update (RTP). Included in the FY 2020-2024 TIP are the Draft FY 2021 Transit Program of Projects and the Working Draft FY 2022 Transit Program of Projects. The proposed amendment requires a new conformity determination. A conformity analysis has been conducted for the proposed amendment to the TIP and RTP. Both the proposed amendment and conformity analysis are being provided for review and comment through the MAG Conformity Consultation Process with comments requested by 5:00 p.m. on June 6, 2021.

The proposed amendment to the FY 2020-2024 TIP and 2040 MAG RTP includes changes to Freeway Life Cycle Program projects, General Highway projects, Transit projects, and Arterial Life Cycle Program projects. The conformity analysis includes a regional emissions analysis to support a finding that the amendment to the TIP and RTP meet transportation conformity requirements for carbon monoxide, eight-hour ozone, and particulate matter PM-10 in the Maricopa nonattainment and maintenance areas, and PM‑10 and PM-2.5 in the Pinal County nonattainment areas. The results of the conformity analysis indicate that the proposed amendment, when considered together with the TIP and RTP as a whole, will not contribute to violations of federal air quality standards.

The consultation documentation on the proposed amendment and conformity analysis is available for review on the MAG web site at www.azmag.gov. Special accommodations for reviewing the draft document may be made by contacting Dean Giles at the telephone number below. Public comments may be submitted in writing by 5:00 p.m. on June 6, 2021 to the address below or online by visiting www.azmag.gov/comment. In addition, public comments are welcomed at the MAG Management Committee meeting on June 9, 2021, and the MAG Regional Council meeting on June 23, 2021.
