Project-Level Conformity Determinations
Determinations through May 2023


The Regional Planning Partnership received an update at their May 24, 2023, meeting about project-level conformity determinations conducted by the Project Level Conformity Group. Two projects were reviewed since the January 2023 update:

  • SAC24732 – 5475(038) – Auburn Blvd Complete Streets Phase 2. This project was found to not be of air quality concern.
  • CAL21275 – 6203(061) – I-5 Managed Lanes: I-5/US50 Interchange to Sacramento River. This project is still pending a determination. More information was requested of the project sponsor and the data will be provided later.

The Project-Level Conformity Group was formed as a subcommittee of the RPP in 2011 to review and act on PM2.5 and PM10 Project of Air Quality Concern (POAQC) determinations and hot spot analyses. The Group has been operating under the processes outlined here since this time. The updated process will include the handling of conformity exemption assessments for specific types of projects.
