Title

Environmental Justice Report (5 minutes)

Anne Phillips, LPA Staff

 

Narrative

The MPO Board released the 2020 draft Environmental Justice Report for a 45-day public comment period at its May meeting. The public comment period was advertised in the Herald-Sun, the Triangle Tribune, on the MPO’s website, and on the MPO’s Facebook and Twitter pages. So far, no comments have been received from the public.

 

Staff suggested including an appendix with thresholds for Orange, Chatham, and Durham counties and mapped communities of concern for each county. This addition will allow the counties to use the EJ report methodology for county specific projects, such as Transit Plans. The county level analysis has been added to the appendix.

 

The MPO Board held a public hearing for the 2020 draft Environmental Justice Report at its August meeting. No members of the public spoke during the hearing.

 

Recommendation

TC Action: Recommended that the Board adopt the 2020 Environmental Justice Report.

Board Action: Adopt the 2020 Environmental Justice Report.
