Public Comment Meeting: VW Environmental Mitigation Plan

In the coming weeks, the N.C. Department of Environmental Quality will hold a series of information sessions on the proposed plan to use North Carolina’s share of a national settlement with Volkswagen. The Draft State Mitigation Plan outlines a proposal to invest the first phase of $92 million in projects aimed at reducing pollution impacts from diesel emissions. DEQ used public feedback to develop the Draft State Mitigation Plan and the plan will be further refined based on public comment. The final plan will be submitted to the trustee this summer, with a request for proposals to follow in the fall.
 TJCOG will be hosting one of these meetings at our offices in Durham. Event details are as follows:
