GTC is the designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the Genesee-Finger Lakes Region. USDOT requires every metropolitan area with a population over 50,000 to have a designated MPO to quality for receipt of federal highway and transit funds.

This Region’s TIP is developed cooperatively by GTC and the New York State Department of Transportation.

Opportunity to comment on the DRAFT Transportation Conformity Statement for the Long Range Transportation Plan for the Genesee-Finger Lakes Region 2040 and 2020-2024 Transportation Improvement Program

The Genesee Transportation Council (GTC) and New York State Department of Transportation - Region 4 (NYSDOT-4) are making the DRAFT Transportation Conformity Statement for the Long Range Transportation Plan for the Genesee-Finger Lakes Region 2040 and 2020-2024 Transportation Improvement Program (DRAFT Conformity Statement) available for a 30-day public review from Friday, May 10, 2019 through Monday, June 10, 2019.

As part of its transportation planning process, the Genesee Transportation Council completed the transportation conformity process for the Long Range Transportation Plan for the Genesee-Finger Lakes Region 2040 (LRTP 2040) and FFY 2020-2024 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The attached report documents that the LRTP 2040 and the FFY 2020-2024 TIP meet the federal transportation conformity requirements in 40 CFR Part 93.

The DRAFT Conformity Statement is a compliance document to satisfy federal requirements; it does not establish any new policy or investment decisions. The 30-day public review period offers an opportunity for the public and others to gain an understanding of the conformity process and how transportation decisions impact air quality both locally and downwind.

The DRAFT Conformity Statement is being advanced in conjunction with the DRAFT 2020-2024 TIP Update Project List. In conjunction with the 30-day public review, four public meetings are scheduled to review and solicit public input on the DRAFT Conformity Statement:

Tuesday, May 21, 2019 6:30 p.m. Fairport Public Library
