CEQA & Land Use Planning

​Land use and transportation plans and projects in the SacMetro AQMD jurisdiction have the potential to impact air quality.  SacMetro AQMD staff review and provide comments through lead agency planning, environmental and entitlement processes with the goal of reducing adverse air quality impacts and ensuring compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).

The following resources are provided to assist agencies and project proponents with air quality analysis and mitigation.

​SacMetro AQMD comment letters on plans and projects are publicly available.

Additionally, SacMetro AQMD staff publishes a quarterly newsletter highlighting updates to guidance, changes to models, and workshops and training opportunities.

​NEW Incentive Program:  Targeted Green Infrastructure Fund

​SacMetro AQMD has a new grant program category within its Targeted Green Infrastructure Fund (TGIF) for transit stop improvements. The purpose of the TGIF is to reduce air pollution emissions and gain health and climate benefits from reducing vehicle travel by making small, strategic investments that facilitate walking, bicycling and transit use as a means of everyday transportation.

​The current funding cycling of the TGIF offers reimbursement of up to $40,000 for the improvement of transit stops with ADA accessibility infrastructure, seating, shelter, shade trees, and/or solar-powered lighting. Public transit agencies or organizations that have or maintain transit stops or stations in the six-county SACOG region are eligible to apply.


Applications will be accepted from May 9, 2017 through June 1, 2017.
