Ozone Advance Web page launches; survey offers chance to weigh in

Thursday, February 21, 2013

CAPCOG and partners have launched a new online resource to help gain stakeholder input on an upcoming regional ozone-reduction plan.

The project's Web page, which offers details on the emissions-reduction initiative, tools for stakeholder outreach and individual pollution-curbing efforts and a look at next steps - is now live at

With the Central Texas Clean Air Coalition’s (CAC) acceptance into the Ozone Advance Program, a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency initiative to help areas stay in step with federal ozone standards, stakeholders are invited to help develop a new regional air quality plan.

CAC, a Capital Area Council of Governments committee, comprises five area counties charged with implementing the 8-Hour O3 Flex Plan, an ongoing regional initiative to reduce ozone pollution.

Through its advisory subcommittee, the coalition kicked off outreach efforts in February 2013 by presenting a training for interested local government staff and others willing to participate in helping obtain public input. Participating outreach partners would help spread the word about the OAP’s purpose, ozone air quality challenges facing the region and more.

In addition to the tools already available, the new Web page will also soon include links to a calendar for outreach organizers and to an Ozone Advance brochure. 

Organizations interested in outreach training or offering input on the plan as stakeholders can contact Andrew Hoekzema. > Go
