Notice of Opportunity for Public Hearing and Comment on the MAG 2020 Eight-Hour Ozone Plan - Submittal of Marginal Area Requirements for the Maricopa Nonattainment Area

The Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG) announces an opportunity to comment on and/or request a public hearing on the Draft MAG 2020 Eight-Hour Ozone Plan - Submittal of Marginal Area Requirements for the Maricopa Nonattainment Area. The purpose of this notice is to receive public comments.

In accordance with the Clean Air Act, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) designated the Maricopa nonattainment area as a Marginal Area on June 4, 2018, for the 2015 eight-hour ozone standard of 0.070 parts per million. The MAG 2020 Eight-Hour Ozone Plan addresses requirements for a Marginal nonattainment area, such as an Emissions Statement, Baseline Emissions Inventory, Periodic Emissions Inventory, New Source Review, and Transportation Conformity.

The draft document is available for a 30-day public review period on the MAG website at www.azmag.gov. Special accommodations for reviewing the draft document can be made by contacting Lesa Young at the phone number below. Public comments may be submitted in writing by 5:30 p.m. on May 7, 2020 to Lesa Young at the address below or online by visiting www.azmag.gov/comment. Comments may also be received at the public hearing if a public hearing is conducted. After considering the public comments, the MAG Regional Council may take action on the plan on June 24, 2020. The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality may then adopt the plan for submittal to the EPA.

A public hearing concerning the draft document will be conducted only if a request is received during the 30-day public review period. A request for a public hearing may be submitted to MAG by email or mail at the address shown below. If no request for a public hearing is received by 5:30 p.m. on May 7, 2020, the hearing will be cancelled by a notice posted on the MAG website at www.azmag.gov.
